'LOST ON MARS' MARSANNE 2018
A collaboration between Margaret River “natural” winery Amato Vino and ourselves. The vintage of 2018 was superb and not making a wine from the Marsanne located on our vineyard would have been a terrible loss, so we teamed up with brad of Amato Vino to make this delicious wine a reality.
Only 68 dozen made – half will be sold by Amato Vino and half by us. It’s a wine that is distinctly Rhône in its heritage as it sheds off apricot and peach on the nose and palate, but the variety shines through with that dense slippery texture with a hint of lanolin, honeysuckle and what to me smells like star anise. Lovely and rich and leads one into thinking of crayfish and prawns – barbeque style!
