Product Description

Tellurian Marsanne is picked later in the season where Heathcote’s warm days and cool nights helps to capture the expressive flavour offered by this variety.

Tasting Notes

TASTING NOTE

Pale gold in colour. Aromas of pear, apple and honeydew are complemented by lifted florals. Medium bodied palate with lovely texture and complexity from subtle oak and lees. Pear, citrus, melon combines with subtle ginger spice. Well balanced acidity providing freshness and length.

VINEYARD

Hand picked from our Tellurian vineyard, in Tranter Rd, Toolleen,  growing inCambrian soils formed over 500 million-years. Deep, rich, decomposed greenstone rock and limestone with soil depths up to 2m allow roots to reach deep, while relatively low fertility controls vigour and yield. 

VINTAGE

Spring rainfall and cooler conditions of 2017 were ideal for flowering and fruit set. Warm gentle summer with no extreme heat days meant a slower ripening season with harvest a month later than 2016. 1st March to 4th April.

WINEMAKING

Hand picked grapes were harvested early in the morning then de-stemmed pressed direct to tank. Juice was settled for 24 hours and racked while still cloudy before being inoculated with a select strain of yeast. The juice was then transferred to seasoned French oak barrels for fermentation. The wine was aged on lees without stirring for 6 months before being stabilised, filtered and bottled.
