Reviews James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2017
89/100 "At $20 this could be a steal for some left field maturation, but if you can't keep your hands off it, don't feel ashamed. It's a lively little green apple number with a jab of citrus acidity."

Harvest Date March 2015

Vintage The 2015 growing season showed great promise from the beginning, with mild temperatures and good Spring rain, with dry conditions around flowering. As the season progressed, the good weather continued. Summer was relatively mild, and was dotted with welcome, but low level, rain events. Despite the mild weather, and the normal cropping loads, vintage once again kicked off early, commencing on the 11th February. 

February was dotted with a few showers, leading into a bone dry March. With the early onset of the vintage, these favourable weather conditions allowed white, red and fortified varieties to develop fully and deliver the desired flavours at harvest.

Generally speaking, vintage 2015 has been a very good one. The fortified wine quality is outstanding. Muscat shows pristine and incredibly floral aromatics, with great power and depth on the palate. Muscadelle for Topaque shows classic honey and cold tea characters, with lovely texture and weight. Our Portuguese varieties have outstanding colour and depth of flavour, with complexity and weight, suitable for high quality port styles. The red wines have great colour, with rich, ripe flavours and good fullness on the palate. And the white wines offer fresh, fruit driven aromatics, with lovely natural acidity, giving length.

Winemakers Comments After crushing and pressing, our 2015 Pfeiffer Marsanne juice was left to cold settle for 2 days. After a rough racking (taking some light solids), the juice was then fermented in stainless steel tanks for 15 days at low temperatures of approximately 15-16°C.

Post fermentation, our Marsanne was stored in a stainless steel tank, and left in contact with its yeast lees. The lees were agitated weekly to build flavour and creaminess on the palate. Prior to bottling in December 2015, the wine was clarified, fined and filtered.

Our 2015 Marsanne is pale straw in colour, and has lovely aromas of stone fruits and citrus blossom, with hints of toast and spice. The palate abounds with lemon and honeysuckle fruit characters, and has a delicious creaminess on the mid-palate that persists to a crisp and dry finish.

Partners Fish, chicken and pork dishes with rich flavours, eg. Braised Snapper with Roasted Tomatoes, Capsicums, Olives and Capers.

Cellar Fresh and fruitful as a young wine, our 2015 Marsanne is capable of bottle maturation for 7 years up to 2022, creating a fuller, toastier style of wine.
