A NOTE FROM THE WINEMAKERS

“The charm of Marsanne, what makes it an interesting wine, is its unusual floral aromas and beautiful mouthfeel and texture. This wine has a unique floral aroma; it is not overtly acidic and has fantastic texture.”

SERVING TEMPERATURE | 11 - 13°

CELLAR POTENTIAL | Up to 10 - 15 years

TASTING NOTES

It has a very complex nose with aromas of dried pear, field honey and wild flower with a hint of potpourri. The palate is full bodied with rich spicy pear flavours and excellent texture. An ideal food match would be sashimi tuna.

SEASON

Vintage 2014 was a challenging one in the Yarra Valley. However, late setting and ripening varieties such as Marsanne fared better than early varietals such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

WINEMAKING

This Marsanne was picked relatively late, in mid-March, to allow the fruit to achieve full flavour. The fruit was whole bunch pressed and the juice was 100% barrel fermented in old oak to minimise oak aromatics while building texture and flavour. The wine was aged on lees for 10 months to further enhance texture and palate weight.

THE VINEYARD

THE VINEYARD

Highbow Hill Vineyard

Highbow Hill Vineyard is made up of 40 hectares of established vines planted on rolling hills just north of the Yarra Valley. The name Highbow Hill Vineyard is derived from the local landscape feature High Bow Hill, which is the dominant feature on the eastern boundary of the property.

Soils are sandy loam over clay and gravel over mudstone.

The long driveway meanders through the vines to the residence and provides uninterrupted views of the lake-sized dam and surrounding panorama.
