Road 13 Vineyards 2017 Marsanne

The 2017 Marsanne is pale gold in colour and has an exotically complex nose made up of Asian pear, white peach, quince, apricot, and mandarin orange peel, in addition to notes of honeysuckle and white flowers. These aromas carry nicely onto the rich palate where they are joined by notes of golden delicious apple vanilla bean and spices, in addition to marmalade, marzipan and honey. The flavours are complimentary to the wonderful round texture in this wine, which is held in check by a nice vibrant acid backbone and a briny minerality reminiscent of crushed seashells. The overall impression is of a wine that is complex, full and rich, but with elegance, delicacy, and impeccable balance.
