For our first exploration into the way of Marsanne we're thankful for the generosity of biodynamic growers James & Annie Millton who shared their fruit. This wine aims to be true to the nature of the grape and draws on modest maceration with skins and stems to build attitude and structure in the wine.  It was fermented wild with no additions and aged on its lees in a single large format barrel before bottling in the autumn untouched and full of life. I hope you enjoy discovering its unique aromatic and textural qualities over the years ahead as we do. In celebration, Lance
