Tallarook Marsanne 2005 (Goulburn Valley, Vic)
$30, Screwcap, 14.5%
Wild yeast ferment in small french oak. Unusually long growing season made for a strong structure.
I’m not winning on the alternate white varietals front of late, with two dissapointments this week alone. This wine is perhaps more dissapointing than the Elgee Viognier from earlier in the week, as I’m sure I have enjoyed a vintage of this wine at one point or another.
Ultimately, this could be an oaky Sem or a Pinot Gris, for it’s a rather nameless, nothing wine of limited appeal. 15.3
