Instead of the wine being fermented in oak wood, the Marsanne was fermented in steel. They also made sure to exclude oxygen throughout the process to help showcase the diversity of flavorful tastes.

They had the opportunity to try both the 2016 and 2010 Marsanne and were really into the $18 bottle of wine. They found it to be “complex but sweet” AKA they felt mature as hell.

The second place the guys headed to was Fowles Wine in Avenel, Victoria. Here the Chief Storyteller, Ian Firth, introduced the guys to $35 Shiraz, Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch.

Since the winery was in a much cooler climate, it allowed the fruit time to develop giving the wine intense flavors.
