Marsanne is one of the principal white varieties grown in the Rhône Valley in France. It is not common in Australia, but there are significant plantings around Nagambie, where it thrives.

Marsanne normally makes a medium bodied lightly aromatic wine. In 2017 we picked the fruit very early giving a crisp and delicate wine with just 11% alcohol. Kept for 18 months on yeast lees, the wine is full of flavour and has developed excellent complexity and texture.

It was gravity bottled under Diam corks with no fining or treatments, other than a touch of Sulphur. As bottled, the wine had a very light haze which we could easily have removed by filtration, but we chose not to compromise the flavour with this additional processing step. The haze has now largely disappeared.

Producers notes

MOON wine comes from the Goulburn Terrace vineyard, on the banks of the Goulburn River at Nagambie, in Central Victoria.

We try to work as naturally as possible.
In the vineyard we follow organic and Biodynamic principles - certified by NASAA. In the winery, the grapes are transformed into wine with a minimum of intervention. Most fermentations are allowed to start spontaneously, generally little or nothing is added, we never fine the wines, and rarely filter them.
Our wine styles are very traditional, perhaps a bit old-world. The emphasis is on building structure and complexity. The wines tend to be savoury, with fruit characters contributing to the deliciousness of the wine without dominating the palate. Where wines are fermented or matured in barrels, we use only French wood, mostly old, so that any oak flavour is subtle.

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes. For estimated delivery times and further information see here. If you have any additional questions, please email us on sales@wineexperience.com.au or call us on 1300 55 44 35
