A wine that really does offer something for a large array of individuals, from someone purely interested in a nice drink to those seeking to explore the nuances of these "alternate" varieties. The Viognier certainly takes centre stage on the nose in the guise of stone fruits, candied ginger and florals. In the background for those keen on honing their senses, Marsanne adds slightly more exotic notes of green mango, hay and almond. The palate has a lovely medium bodied weight to it, without any of that oiliness that over ripe Viognier can deliver. Precise acid throughout and a mild pithy texture on the finish ensure freshness and spice to keep the sweetness of the fruit in check. Fruity and spicy yet dry make this an all occasions wine.

Firm and focused up front, with almond skin, pear and melon flavors and a whiff of lanolin. Finishes with a generous rush of peach and fresh ginger notes. Drink now. 6,500 cases imported.

Opening with honeyed peach and spiced apple notes plus a touch of crusty bread, the 2016 The Hermit Crab Viognier / Marsanne is medium-bodied with a pleasant oiliness to the texture and ample freshness to counter the uncomplicated stone fruit flavors.
