About

The Mr. V is Lark Hill's Rhone Valley inspired white blend of Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier. The old 'MRV' blend is more tried and tested in Australia, but this comes at it from a slightly different angle. As with all of Lark Hill's wines the fruit is 100% biodynamically grown - in this case from their slightly warmer Dark Horse vineyard in Murrambateman. Only wild yeasts are used during ferment, with the Roussanne going straight to stainless steel, the Viognier seeing some older oak and the Marsanne a few weeks on its skins. This skin-fermented Marsanne component adds a bit of a funky, savoury character, it's good stuff. With a strong recommendation and 94 points from Gary Walsh, if you love your textural, full-bodied whites then give this a whirl. Delicious and interesting!

What it Tastes Like

"Tangerine, white flowers and funk, old wood spice, suggestion of chicken stock, apricot too. Fleshy, chalky with the grip from skins, a little Viognier viscosity and barrel creaminess, citrus and fresh acid tang, and a perfumed, yet savoury finish of excellent length. Suspect they’ve got this tuned up to perfection for their second vintage. Perhaps not for everyone, but great for me. 93 or 94. Either or." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
