Lillian Estate Marsanne Rousanne 2011
$27.00 A BOTTLE
Long-serving (and continuing consultant) viticulturist to Leeuwin Estate John Brocksopp has established 2.8ha of the Rhone trio of marsanne, roussanne and viognier, and 0.4ha of shiraz. He is also purchasing grapes from other growers in Pemberton.
Ideal to drink with your favourite pate, roast chicken or pork, perfect to serve with cream sauces and spicy Asian flavours.
This has created a complex, pitch perfect wine. Pale straw and bright, a depth of flavour to this with white peach in cream sprinkled with ginger spice and the palate glides. Superb balance.
