About

About The Wine

This luscious, textural white hails from a small vineyard in one of Australia's premier wine-growing regions.

The two behind this boutique label, Stuart Smith & Rhonda Parish, do everything by hand. They tend the vines themselves, make the wines and even bottle by hand. Around only 120 dozen each are produced of their three wines are produced each year.

 The 'Petit Blanc' sees Marsanne and Roussanne combine powers in a richly decadent and opulent white wine.

It's toasty, honeyed and gloriously mouthfilling - it's a real surprise packet and just a delicious glass of wine.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Glorious golden fruit here. Peaches, nectarine, walnuts dripping in honey. Thickly textured but with bright acidity, they find the balance in a bigger frame. Toastiness abounds. Gee, this is good drinking. Lots to like. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

This is our first release of the Marsanne/Roussanne blend, and we've decided to call it 'petit-blanc' rather than the mouthful of its varietal names. The same picking and processing as the chardonnay was applied here, with the exception of tank fermentation then barrel aging.

The wine has real body for a white wine, a generous floral nose, strong acid backbone and great length. It's not a fruit driven wine, but has a mellowness and honeydew mid palate that really carries the wine, and makes it an absolute pleasure to drink. It is listed in some of Australia's best restaurants.

Blend : Marsanne, Roussanne
