A tidbit about the grape(s)/wine style
Marsanne is a grape usually seen blended with grapes like Roussanne or Grenache Blanc, but here stands proudly on it's own. Marsanne can often have citrus and mineral notes, off-set by a waxy quality and rich mouthfeel. The grapes used for this wine were sourced from 30 year old vines grown on limestone soils.
