Church Road McDonald Series Marzemino 2018
NZ$25.00 / bottle
One of the only wines of this variety you will find in New Zealand, Marzemino is rare outside of its home country of Italy where it is grown in the Trentino-Alto Adige region
Size : 750ml
Consumption Tips : Decanting is recommended as this wine is unfiltered and a light precipitate may form over time
Tasting Notes : Deep in colour, this wine has lifted sweet plum and berry fruit, scented floral aromas and subtle cardamom notes. Rustic earthy complexity adds depth and appeal. The palate is medium bodied with a gentle textured, approachable and slightly savoury tannin structure. While approachable now, this wine will age positively for 8 plus years if cellared well. Well matched to a variety of meat and game dishes, especially braised meat dishes such as Osso Bucco, beef cheeks or lamb shanks and even many northern Indian style curries. It also works well with cured meats, and richer pasta dishes.
