Tahbilk

Tahbilk Marsanne 2017

Tahbilk Marsanne 2017 94 pts James Halliday - Top 100 Wines 2017 - Best White Wine Under $20

Tasting Notes

Somewhat subdued aromatically on opening, with some aeration a citric/lemon component underpins a floral note of delicate honeysuckle and white flowers. Medium bodied, clean and crisp, this has good drive and nice acidity supporting the citric lemon fruit flavors that picks up depth and intensity leading to a long finish. This seems a little more open and accessible than previous vintages we have tried at this early stage of the wine’s life, yet it has all the pre-requisites to age gracefully up to 10 plus years where it will pick up honey and toast notes. The Marsanne produced by Tahbilk is always a wine that takes on all kinds of interesting nuances with extra bottle age.

Honeysuckle, beeswax and wisteria on the bouquet, then firm, racy mineral and Meyer lemon on the palate, gaining a depth of fruit flavour towards the finish.



Winemaker Notes

It wouldn’t be Tahbilk without Marsanne. First planted on the Estate in the 1860’s, we have largest single holding of this unique varietal worldwide including surviving vines dating back to 1927, amongst the oldest in the world.
There is delicious early flavor development with this latest release, the result of a long growing season. Those flavors are fresh and zesty lemon/lime, pear and guava fruits alongside apple blossom and jasmine aromas. Juicy and taut now with savory and mineral touches, careful cellaring will realize noted marmalade and honeyed notes.
