Warramunda Estate Marsanne
Warramunda Estate is located in the very prestigious Coldstream district of the Yarra Valley – originally known as Warramunda Station it operated as a sheep and cattle stud until the late 1990s, when its incredible potential as a vineyard site was recognised. Owned by the Magdziarz family – veterans of the Melbourne hospitality scene, the estate is now producing exceptional wines at some very reasonable prices compared to its neighbours.
This wine is usually reserved exclusively for cellar door and private sales, but due to the extensive COVID-19 closures we have been very fortunate to have got our hands on a small parcel of this delicious, complex white. This is very definitely a food wine – one to linger over with a beautiful meal to enjoy its many facets.
The palate has classic Marsanne characters of stone fruit and complex spice, complemented by a delicate lift of frangipani, beeswax and almond meal. Luxurious leatherwood Honey is prominent and melts in with beautiful marzipan. A versatile wine, this Marsanne partners beautifully with a range of different foods such as aromatic pork and chicken dishes, Asian herbs and spices and is a fantastic match with fish and shellfish. The wine will continue to develop over the next 15 years, becoming richer over time.
