Del Rios 2007 Marsanne Listed as one of the Five Top Marsannes by Jeni Port in article "Grape debate on Marsanne". The Age Epicure 8 Nov 2011. Bold and beautiful. Ripe fruit but carries it well: youthful and firm with honeysuckle, jasmine and a mealy intensity.
Each year El Patio books a big bus to take a group on a day trip to del Rios of Mt. Anakie, a winery established by a Spanish family. Upon arrival we get to taste their wines and are treated to a fabulous Spanish lunch, overseen by our Abuela (grandmother) Damiana!
