Wine Harvest Notes
The growing season in 2008 started very well with a cool spring and good rains vital during the growing season. Harvesting began a little earlier than usual, nevertheless small berry sizes and lighter bunch weights complimented by high sugar levels produced ripe, rich and intense flavours in the berries. The 2008 growing season was a memorable one in which intensity and fruit quality were so superior, unlike anything seen for a long time. The 2008 Basilisk Marsanne Viognier is a testament to the growing season, where wines with amazing intensity were produced.
The Basilisk Marsanne Viognier combines magically with food, particularly Asian dishes and fresh Seafood. It is a delightful accompaniment to Gourmet Seafood Pizza and Thai curries.
