Background

‘indie’ is a label used for non mainstream or ‘out there’ varieties and blends from the Hunter Valley. Marsanne and Roussanne both originate and flourish in France’s Rhone Valley but do exceptionally well in the Hunter as well.

Vintage Notes

Marsanne thrived in the warm and dry weather of the 2019 vintage. Beautiful clean and ripe grapes produced beautiful clean and flavoursome wine.

Vineyard Notes

Both the Marsanne and Roussanne are grown on the Kindred family’s, ‘Lochleven’ Estate on Deasys Road. The Roussanne a more recent addition.

Tasting Notes

Lovely aromatics of Packham Pear, quince and nuts. The full-bodied palate has luscious ripe pear characters supported by a judicious hint of spicy oak. Very textured with layers of fruit and fine balancing acid.

Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential

Medium term (10+ years).

Food Matches

Full flavoured seafood.
