Product Description

The Grapes

Roussanne and Marsanne are two white grape varieties originating from the Rhône region of France. They are frequently blended together to produce rich and complex wines, with incredible structure and longevity. While BC plantings of these two intriguing Rhône varieties have increased over the last few years, Moon Curser is one of only a handful of Okanagan wineries making a wine focused on Roussanne and Marsanne. This single vineyard expression from our Home Vineyard brings out the best of both varieties, showcasing just what these varieties are capable of in a South Okanagan terroir.

Tasting Notes

Our Roussanne Marsanne is a dry, medium-bodied white wine with a medium straw hue. Floral notes of orange blossom and lavender lead the charge on the nose, while the palate follows with ripe peach and bright, crisp minerality. With a portion of this wine spending four months in oak with lees stirring, the resulting subtle richness adds an intriguing dimension of toast and baked apples to the flavour profile. This elegant wine has a crisp, lengthy finish and is ready to drink now or can be enjoyed over the next three years if retaining the bright characters is the objective. Aging further will allow for development of incredible secondary flavour characteristics from the Marsanne such as marzipan, honey and caramel, and allow the light oak influence to surface.
