In 2020, we wanted to try something a little different with our Marsanne fruit, picked from up north of the Heathcote Region in Colbinabbin.

So we decided to make a late harvest, dessert wine, with a touch of residual sugar. And we think it's pretty damn good.

Harvested by hand late in the season, the fruit for our 2020 Dessert Marsanne comes from a block of 15 year old Marsanne plantings in Colbinabbin, located on the banks of the Waranga-Mallee Irrigation Channel.  Lightly pressed and fermented in stainless, to promote bright fruit characters, this dessert Marsanne has just enough sweetness to enhance the honeysuckle and rockmelon finish.

And the name "RAD"? A Rhône After Dark... coz everyone loves an After Dinner Treat.
