Harcourt Marsanne 2021Hawke's Bay
$ 64.00 NZD $ 80.00 NZD
From the same vineyard that has gifted the Harcourt Syrah, the 2021 vintage includes a fair dollop of Roussanne in the blend, from the same site. It is a wine that will age beautifully, gaining more and more honeyed characters, but it’s delicious now. It has the same power and richness of its predecessors, yet with more vibrancy thanks to the Harcourt soils and climate, and the Rousanne inclusion.
94 Points “Really textural, rich and potent, a savoury edge and more on the preserved lemon, ginger, buttery honey toast with cool acidity underlying. It’s very complex, a layered and intense experience with Serious White Wine written all over it. Mouth-coating and lush in the most wonderful sense. Multi-dimensional wine. A full and fantastic white wine.”
