Product Description

Marsanne is an aromatic white grape variety that originates from the Northern Rhone valley in France. It is a wine that is usually made dry, with lovely savoury honeydew/citrus characters. Marsanne has the unusual reputation of being a white wine that has potential to age for many years, where it will develop wonderful layers of honey, cashew nuts and lanolin. The wine displays straw colours and lifted aromatics of honey- dew, apples, pears, soft spices and subtle nuances of vanilla from some careful oak application in the winery. The aroma builds as you progress through the glass – changing and developing over time.

In pursuit of wine excellence Churchview Estate gets its name from the Heritage Listed St. John the Baptist Anglican Church, as seen from the tasting room.

Churchview Estate is a private 100 ha estate vineyard. Migrants from the Netherlands in 1950s the Fokkema family selected the site in 1998 for its ideal gravelly loams, ample clean water and ideal aspect with north facing slopes.

Spike Fokkema the founder of Churchview Estate has applied a highly successful philosophy to the production of premium wines. “Quality begins in the vineyard”. It is this unwavering commitment to the pursuit of excellence and the rigorous application of his philosophy that underpins the quality and exacting standards demanded by Churchview Estate. Churchview Estate achieves its high standard by growing vines that are in balance with nature. By allowing more sunlight into the vine canopy Churchview has been able to dramatically enhance fruit quality, flavour and colour development. This unique application of simple but natural principles allows the production of grapes of the highest possible standard.
