McPherson Basilisk Marsanne Viognier

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Pale straw-gold; a remarkable wine given its age, explicable if the marsanne is (say) 85% or more of the blend, for it is quite full on the mid palate, but fresh and crisp on the finish.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
The musk and apricot of the viognier are more obvious than the marsanne, but it provides the freshness and structure to a successful blend.Value.

WINESTATE (2007 Vintage) says
Fragrant mix of nectarines, pears and honeysuckle on the nose. Palate lifted, long and balanced. Has potential. 5+

WINESTATE (2005 Vintage) says
Interesting nose thats both young and fresh and yet developed and complex. Subtle, fragrant expression of fruit flavours on a long, soft palate with great mouthfeel. More ageing left in it. 3-5

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Has flavour impact from honeysuckle into tropical fruit, then minerally/citrussy acidity.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2003 Vintage) says
Given the popularity of these two Rhone Valley grapes in Australia at the moment, we're surprised to be only recommending one blend of them - but it's a good one, with ripe, rich honeyed fruit and good creaminess in the mouth.
