A White Wine Worthy of your Cellar – Marsanne

Marsanne Grape

Marsanne is the most widely planted white grape in Northern Rhone, but is a rare find with it only taking up roots in three other countries, Australia, America and Switzerland. What you may not realise is that Australia’s Tahbilk holds the largest and oldest single holding of the variety in the world. Although you won’t find a lot of this variety sitting on the shelves at your local bottle shops, it’s growing in popularity and is slowly building a name for itself in Australia.

You will often find Marsanne blended with Rousanne, but it is the Marsanne that adds character and depth to this richly coloured wine. This wine has flavours of honeydew melon, spice, nuts, pears and a silky exotic mouthfeel.

Marsanne is made for your wine cellar and will improve distinctly over time. While not many of today’s white wines are made to stand the test of time, Marsanne has a special place in your cellar right beside your Chardonnay and Riesling.

There is a certain romantic allure surrounding drinking a really old wine. However most people don’t really know why the aged wine they are enjoying is any better than it was in the first year. What is the oldest wine you have tasted; did you like it or understand the differences of its age? It’s a question I’m often asked my new customers starting down the path of wine collection. Learning the answer to this question is half the fun of cellaring wines.

First, you need to stock your cellar with age worthy wines. You might be surprised to know that only 1% of the wines produced in the world are built to last the test of time. Most of the cellar worthy wines will actually have poorer ratings on release and only gain perfection with age.

The ageing of wine is an intricate process, requiring the harmonious balance of numerous interrelated factors. If this balance is neglected, an unfavourable combination of the components can adversely affect the quality of wine.
