If you enjoy the heft of a good Chardonnay then Marsanne is a great full-bodied alternative to try. Notes of cantaloupe, pie crust and jasmine on the nose are followed by citrus and lemon curd on the palate, backed by rich honey, vanilla and golden delicious apple flavors. As this wine ages, flavors will become more complex and concentrated with an oily, honeyed texture.
Marsanne is a food friendly white wine. Pair with any rich seafood or shellfish dishes such as lobster or sea bass, as well as chicken or pork.
