Bright straw-green; while both varieties come from the northern Rhone Valley, the blend doesn't always work well. Here it succeeds brilliantly, the marsanne providing structure, the viognier fruit flavour in abundance without phenolics.

Matt Skinner (2009 Vintage) says
With more than a glancing nod to the wines of France's Rhone Valley, this marsanne (60 per cent) and viognier (40 per cent) blend from Heathcote continues to go from strength to strength. Co-fermented by Matt Harrop (of Shadowfax fame) Ð half of which took place in stainless steel with conventional yeast, the other half in old oak with wild yeast Ð it has a controlled nose of apricot, white peach, spice, and mineral, and unwinds bright and lively on the palate with a broad mouthfeel, racy acidity, and a long, drying finish.

ibrant hue; honeysuckle, straw and a little spice on the bouquet; round, soft and fleshy on entry, there is a mineral backbone that provides drive through to the finish

Clean, crisp and quite reserved; a fine example of a Rhone Valley blend; the palate takes time to build; surprisingly long, and manages to hold interest for the entire journey.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
A synergistic blend, the marsanne providing spine, the viognier plenty of stone fruit/apricot flavour; good length, clean finish.
