Description

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. 

Wine Critic Reviews
"Marsanne is a difficult grape to feature alone and this low-alcohol bottling captures its spirit without going overly ripe. Tightly woven aromas of lime peel, melon flesh, citrus balm and crushed stone make for a focused nose. The palate is all about a stony texture, offering wet sidewalk, tangerine flesh and grapefruit-peel flavors. Editors’ Choice." ~ Wine Enthusiast "The 2020 Marsanne Rodney's Vineyard is racy and layered, with tons of flavor intensity and plenty of character. Orchard fruit, white flowers, mint and citrus confit all develop nicely with time in the glass." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "The 2020 Marsanne Rodney's Vineyard is richer, with more orchard fruits and honeyed toast notes as well as medium-bodied richness. It's a balanced, rock-solid, well-made white." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
