La Petite Mort Marsanne 2017 Queensland Granite Belt
Still very much in its youth, the wine shows pretty floral notes of honeysuckle and beeswax with the crisp green melon and nectarine fruit that we fought so hard to preserve. The oak lends savouriness and spicy cedar to the honey end of the spectrum. Over the tongue, this wine has a waxy viscosity balanced against crisp acidity and held up by a great back bone of minerality (think of smooth wet creek pebbles). All of the afore mentioned aromas continue onto the palate but come off just a little richer and with more body than the nose might suggest.
