Vintage Notes

Marsanne and Roussanne flourished in the 2022. Ripe and disease free grapes were harvested by hand to allow further berry selection in the vineyard. The cool ripening weather allowed great acid to be retained.

Both the Marsanne and Roussanne are grown on the Kindred family’s, ‘Lochleven’ Estate on Deasys Road. The Roussanne a more recent addition in 2012.
