Lark Hill Mr.V 2015 (Bungendore, New South Wales) "...white pepper, peach, melon..."
40% Marsanne, 30% Roussane, 30% Viognier from our Dark Horse Vineyard in Murrumbatement.
The 3 components were harvested separately and vinified differently - the Marsanne skin-fermented, the Viognier tank fermented and the Roussanne fermented in 5-10 year old French oak.
The blend combines these 3 to give structure, complexity and a rich palate.
Perfect with rich white meat like roast pork or barramundi, or a creamy pasta dish.
"Tangerine, white flowers and funk, old wood spice, suggestion of chicken stock, apricot too. Fleshy, chalky with the grip from skins, a little Viognier viscosity and barrel creaminess, citrus and fresh acid tang, and a perfumed, yet savoury finish of excellent length. Suspect they’ve got this tuned up to perfection for their second vintage. Perhaps not for everyone, but great for me." 94 points Gary Walsh Winefront
