About The Wine

Like so many creatives, Ben Haines has two jobs. His day job at the famed Mount Langhi as head winemaker, and his passion project under his own label, Ben Haines Wine.

The B Minor range is the perfect entry point into the Ben Haines world; two Rhone-inspired blends, this is the Marsanne Roussanne.

Although ‘entry level’ hardly does this wine justice - with a massive 97 points it rates as one of true superstars from James Halliday’s 2017 Australian Wine Companion. In fact, it may just be the highest-rated wine under $30 in the entire book.

Ben describes this as, “Both a winter white, and a sessionable summer delight.” There’s a little more Marsanne in the blend (60%) this year, and with each portion of the blend being separately fermented in big, old, oak, there is some complexity and interested to be found.

For lovers of interesting/textural whites, this is going to be a great go-to. Ridiculous value.

What It Tastes Like

“Marsanne is gorgeously aromatic and seductive with its threads of spice and layers of texture and flavour. Roussanne complements with pithy stone fruit, summer flowers and a pure and lively acidity that ties the blend together” - Ben Haines
