MME Marlbrook 2007

MME Marlbrook 2007

Cool, dry pre-vintage conditions resulted in healthy, ripe fruit harvested towards the end of February.

Tasting Notes

Lively green-gold appearance. Initial herbal aromas of semillon interlace with subtle oak. The palate is serious, yet retains a vibrant acidity which, combined with fresh sauvignon flavours and creamy richness from lees contact in barrel makes for a mouth-watering, complex wine.


Maturation

Will develop favourably in bottle until 2017

Barrel Aging

After waiting for full ripeness on the selected semillon and sauvignon blanc blocks, the grapes where harvested towards the end of February. Fermentation in 500L French oak barrels (50% new) was followed by 10 months of lees maturation before blending and bottling in December of 2007
