Yeringberg makes possibly the example of this blend in Australia.
"64% Marsanne and 36% Roussanne. Some skin contact. Old oak for 10 months. White flowers, aniseed and ginger, stone fruit. It’s light, fresh in acidity, but has golden beeswax and cornflakes, and stonefruit flavour, a light but sure grainy/dusty texture, plenty of spice and perfume, and a crisp finish of excellent length and nutty complexity. Really like this. 94 Points. Gary Walsh. The Wine Front
"This starts out quite floral with lemon blossom and gardenia. It's restrained on the palate, with a hint of beeswax, pips and just-ripe stone fruit. Some phenolics pull through. It's largely a light refreshing take of these two varieties with an acid drive. A bit more volume wouldn't go astray. A good drink regardless. Rating: 92 Points. Jane Faulkner.

Where this wine comes from - Yarra Valley
Just 50 kilometres from Melbourne, Victoria’s Yarra Valley is a star of the wine regions surrounding the city, known as the ‘Melbourne Dress Circle’. With plenty of microclimates and sub-regions, the Yarra Valley doesn’t have a weak link. Certainly the region’s reputation has been built on the quality of its cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As far as Chardonnay goes, Yarra Valley strikes the right balance of ripeness, without going over the edge. There’s white peach, lemon pith and Fuji apple supported by a fine spine of citrus-like acidity complemented by supportive oak maturation. The region’s Pinot Noir certainly produces that ethereal quality that Pinot-philes go crazy for – with lifted cherry notes, texture and length. Pinosity? It’s here in spades. Don’t discount Yarra Valley Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, which also have a long history in the region and are being recognised for producing their own unique regional styles. Game on!
