Humis Vineyard Marsanne 2017

Impressive first release of Humis Marsanne from Heathcote fruit.

The wine exhibits a medium straw colour.
Heady aromas of lemon/lime, marzipan, green peas and hints of grass. Very fragrant and lively.
It tastes of green capsicum and honeysuckle showing alongside some peach and citrus nuances. 

There is an initial spritz interestingly but it's dry overall with tart acid, some mineral charm and soft chalky tannins.
The balance is just right and the texture and juicy flavours are persistent throughout.  

Although taut now, drinking appeal is not an issue. Will improve in complexity with up to ten years cellaring. Much to like here.
