Kew's take on Marsanne marries the varietal's Southern Rhone penchant for viscosity and roundness of mouthfeel with Ontario's cool climate acidity. An interesting expression for sure. Medium plus intensity aromatics. The oak treatment is noticeable. Very good length but slight alcohol burn. Needs some integration, I would give this another year. April 2017.
