dried citrus garland / candied ginger / the devil is in the details
Marsanne can often be a little finicky, and unless the conditions are ideal, the fruit can often fall short of expectations, like how your parents probably think of you. Spending three weeks on its skins, think of this wine as the bastard child of the Nutty Professor & Scary Spice, briefly married but just couldn’t stay together for the kids. Ginger spiciness & dried citrus, this packs a punch similar to the turmeric immunity shots at the gentrified juice shop you UberEats when you're stuck in bed hungover.
American by birth, Santini Collective leader Christopher Santini, grew up spending his summers in France, and took part in his first harvest in Provence before he was legal drinking age in his home country. Part of the larger Auxey Collective, the Santini Collective is a product of Christopher & his brothers- turns out blood is about as thick as grape juice. Taking over a winery that's over 100 years old, Santini sources organic fruit from unusual Burgundian appellations and utilises minimal sulphur in the final product.
