Marion’s Teroldego vineyards were originally propagated with cuttings obtained from the mother of Teroldego: Elizebetha Foradori and planted at Marion in 1994. The result is a unique expression of what is usually a light bodied, dark coloured and intensely perfumed varietal that has the additional concentration of flavor and aromatics that the dried grape portion offers.
Seductive, with a bouquet that pulls you towards the glass to take in its captivating mix of woodland herbs, crushed wild berries and dried florals. It enters the palate silky and pliant, with a wave of mineral-tinged red and black fruits carried across a core of bright acidity, as fine tannins slowly mount towards the close. It finishes long, and leaves a licorice stain, along with a hint of mocha.
