About

The cheekily named ‘Surly Muse’ is a blend of Viognier and Marsanne and a very user-friendly example of the style.

Picked in two stages, one early for “great natural acidity and green tinges” and the second four weeks later for “the rich and ripe fruit flavours.”, this is a very well judged wine. The fruit is then sent barrel and left alone on lees for 6 months while it found a natural balancing point before bottling.

This has style and freshness without losing any of the typical Viognier ‘kick’ in flavour. A job well done here by the boys at Massena.

What It Tastes Like

Big nose-full of orange fleshed citrus and stone fruit. There’s the shadows of barrel complexity in the mix as well. Not shy but not overpowering. Just right. Glycerol in the mouth. Chewy and refreshing to drink. It has the stylish element that many of these blends lack. Good fruit made well. No-brainer.
