'LOST ON MARS' MARSANNE 2020
It is a wine that is distinctly Rhône in its heritage but in this version we have rich ripe pear aromas giving a thumping bass notes to some taut and uplifting citric riffs – mandarin and lemon – and is that fresh strawberry wafting in from the side stage? On the palate it comes together so cleanly considering the “scotch mist” that dulls your view in your big big glasses (yes, get that wine moving and evolving, it needs air and attention) – all pear juice on your chin with lemon wedges and a tropical note from a loquat (freshly peeled). Lovely and rich, and leads one into thinking of crayfish and prawns – what a combination that would be!
Only 48 dozen made – half will be sold by Amato Vino and half by us.
