2019 Wren Estate Heathcote Marsanne
Michael Wren is the man behind the wines. For 10 years he was making wine in Portugal, before he decided to settle back in Australia. He purchased a vineyard from Stefani Wines and 2018 was his first vintage.
His Marsanne is picked early, to retain acid. He makes two styles and this is his fresh, lighter one. 50% of the wine spends 6 months in old barrel for some texture. It is beautifully balanced with some nutty characters and a pink grapefruit zing.
