2014 'MrV'

35.00

'Mr.V' is a blend of the three traditional Rhone White varieties; Marsanne, Roussanne & Viognier - but that is where the tradition finishes.

The Marsanne was fermented on skins (approx 30 days) and the Roussanne & Viognier wild-yeast fermented in older French oak barrels.
The wine then spent 6 months maturing in oak before blending and bottling. 

2014 features a higher percentage of skin-fermented Marsanne that the previous vintage (around 50%), giving a deeper orange colour, savoury texture and a refreshing, crisp palate. Aromatically this wine is a complex blend of vibrant Rousanne (think white flowers and stone fruit), lifted Viognier (apricot & ginger) and a base note of candied orange and macadamias from the Marsanne.

This is a wine that will power through food-wine matching, standing up to rich flavours and heavier dishes.

A brilliant wine when it comes to dining around the suite of Mediterranean-influenced foods. This is saturated in ripe peach and apricot fruit aromas, plus lemon barley and some gently nutty notes too. The palate’s silky, full and flows with flavorsome peachy stone fruit flesh, honey and a lick of orange crush through the finish. Drink now.
