Ben Haines 2016 Volta Brackets Marsanne (Yarra Valley)

Another excellent Marsanne from this small-scale producer. Slightly reductive, notes kick things off: nuts, sea salt, butter, oyster shells. Peach and lemon fruits are there, too. There's a delicacy here that spills over to the palate, which is slippery yet powdery and a touch phenolic, that salty, oyster shell nuance weaving in and out of bright fruit and herbal tones. A lighter Marsanne than we've seen from this producer in the past, but one that beautifully captures the variety's textural, savory components. Christina Pickard
