Marsane-Chardonnay-Roussanne, 2011

Australia White

Margaret River 75cl

I do really like this wine :)
It's a carbon copy of the previous vintage (apart from a major label facelift) again I wondered very briefly why it's a 2011 white as we head into the tail end of 2015 but it's really delicious.
Initial aromas of lime and then more floral notes and a hint of oak. It's unashamedly rich on the palate and exhibits a wealth of stone and tropical fruit but and amazingly this holds it all together, is that streak of fresh lime running through the wine.
Very complex and not an aperitif drink but would be brilliant with full flavoured seafood dishes, chicken and maybe even pork or veal.
Not everyones wine style but I think it's very well made and that focussed limey edge keeps this balanced.

p.s it doesn't keep overnight, loses all the limey freshness and although it goes a bit 'peaches and cream' is a lot less enjoyable
