Marvelous marsanne

Collector-Lamp-Lit-Marsanne-2013Collector Wines Lamp Lit Marsanne 2013, Canberra District, AUD $32

This is a discreet, early-harvested style of marsanne, resulting in moderate alcohol. Candle-wax, creamy lees, malt and honey aromas. Ageing slowly. It’s refined, delicate, intense and refreshing, and grows on you gradually. A very fine wine. Includes 10% roussanne and viognier. (12.9 per cent alcohol; screw-cap)
