Mitchelton, Marsanne (2009)

Nagambie Lakes, Victoria
12.5%, screwcap, around $20

Glowing yellow. Aromas of tangerine, pear, apple and some white flower blossoms. On the crisp palate pear notes dominated against a grassy background. Good line and structure. Having spent time in oak, the tannins were quite pronounced. This wine has plenty of life left - 92.
