Kew Marsanne 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  485334

Not only does this deliver the only Marsanne grown in Ontario to my knowledge, but it is an excellent Marsanne to boot. Garnering gold at 2018 NWACs it shows the classic orange, persimmon and lavender scents of this variety, that became etched in my mind decades ago when tasting a great white Hermitage by Chapoutier. Modest oak creates a fine envelope of vanillin and subtle spice. It is medium-full bodied, nicely smooth, creamy and just a touch sweet with lemon-orange citrus and some licorice on the finish. The length is excellent. Excellent value. Score - 90. (David Lawrason,, March 4, 2019)
