This traditional Marsanne features aromas of toasted nuts, baking spice, white peach, and quince. It is dry on the palate, with fresh apple flavors, savory undertones, and just a bit of the signature oily texture that makes this white variety so distinct. Its acidity will match perfectly with rich seafood and creamy dishes.
The juice from these grapes was pressed straight to tank and fermented in stainless steel, then transferred to barrels for aging. Aged 11 months in 33% 2nd fill Acacia, 33% 3rd fill Acacia, and and 33% Neutral Oak barrels.
FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS
Pair with dishes with cream sauce, and crab or lobster with butter. Seafood and shellfish in general are great choices with this wine!
Marsanne is one of the most famous white wine grapes of the Rhône wine region in France and is often blended with Roussanne. Here, with our Sierra Foothills grown grapes, we’ve let the variety stand-alone.
