2015 Domaine Tournon Mathilda Viognier Marsanne
Grape varieties: 85% Viognier, 15% Marsanne
Premium Viognier and Marsanne from long term growers in Central Victoria. For the first time we are placing the grape varieties on the label, allowing these Rhône varietals to shine.
The fruit for this 2015 vintage was carefully monitored during the growing season by our long term growers and our winemaking team. Frosty early, a long and warm growing season allowed the grapes to reach maturity with lots of flavour and freshness.

Fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
The wine is entirely aged in stainless steel tanks on lees for 5 months.
