Description

Cantaloupe and orange zest scents immediately jump from the glass with hints of jasmine, vanilla, beeswax and pie crust. Our Marsanne is dry with rich textures, citrus flavors carry through the palate with lemon curd, golden delicious apple with a touch of honey and vanilla.

Marsanne is a food friendly wine, however seafood is an obvious choice, especially richer varieties such as lobster, crab or mussels. From chicken to pork, spicy flavors to Asian cuisine, cream sauces to an array of cheeses, don't be afraid to try new dishes with this wine as it will match up.

Wine Critic Reviews
"...wonderfully resonant in the glass. Candied lemon peel, savory herbs, dried flowers and chamomile open nicely with some aeration. This is a serious white for the dinner table with enough depth to be incredibly versatile. I would open it in advance, as there is just a hint of reduction." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "...offers more restrained notes of stone fruits and melon as well as a touch of dried herbs and toasted almonds. It's beautiful on the palate, displaying medium body, a balanced, elegant mouthfeel, and a great finish." ~ Jeb Dunnuck "Wound-up aromas of wet stone, white flowers and a hint of honey show on the nose of this bottling. A chalky texture delivers flavors of honeysuckle, tart pear and a hint of lanolin on the palate." ~ Wine Enthusiast
