"The 2014 The Hermit Crab Marsanne / Viognier reveals a lovely white peach, lychee, baker’s yeast and jasmine nose lifted with some white roses and allspice notes. Medium-bodied, the satiny palate shows great intensity with just enough racy acidity adding to the good length."~RP

"The nose of this wine displays an enticing mix of white stonefruits and sweet pineapple with an underlying hint of ginger. The palate is luscious and flavorsome, again nectarine and peach are prominent, with a twist of candied citrus rind. These sweet flavors evolve through the palate into more savory flavours reminiscent of raw almonds and spice. A generous, textural wine with a surprising finesse on the finish. Blend: 74% Viognier, 26% Marsannne."~Winemaker's Notes

4/5 stars
Very different and lovely - Interesting wine, buttery with evergreen-woodsy, citrusy notes and a smooth finish. Sorry that it's no longer available.
