Whilst the challenging 2022 vintage created low-yields, the Tahbilk Estate Marsanne is a true varietal Marsanne with lifted and intense lemon citrus aromas, spice and pear fruits with a zesty minerality and cleansing acidity on the palate.

"This is a reserved release and that, you’d have to argue, is a good thing. It has all the right components but it needs time for it to flesh out. Blossomy citrus and slate characters come with whispers of fennel and musk. The mouthfeel, dry riverstone-like, is very good, as is the general flow of it. At this early stage this looks to be in a very good/excellent place."

Winery & Vintage Info

Purchased by the Purbrick family in 1925, Tahbilk is the oldest family-owned winery and vineyard in Victoria, Australia. As proud custodians of Tahbilk Estate, the family has been at the forefront of sustainability, ensuring Tahbilk’s rich heritage, winemaking style and unique natural environment is protected for the enjoyment of all for many years to come.

There are not many wineries in the world who can claim a wine as their own, however synonymous with Tahbilk is Marsanne. Marsanne is one of the world’s rarest grape varietals, and Tahbilk holds the largest single holding of the varietal in the world.

Originally from Hermitage AOC in France’s norther Rhone wine region, Marsanne was bought to Australia and established at St Hubert’s Vineyard in Victoria’s Yarra Valley. Tahbilk sourced cuttings from there in 1860, and although those vines didn’t survive, Tahbilk was still able to plant Marsanne in 1927 at the request of the newly appointed winemaker, Eric Stevens Purbrick. The '1927 Vines' as the block is known, and it is these Marsanne vines that are amongst the oldest in the world.

The 2022 vintage season started off slowly, summer was cool and the rainfall was low in the lead up.
A windy spring certainly disrupted the fruit set, leading to fewer berries per bunch with final yields well down, with some of our blocks by as much as 40%.
The harvest itself ticked along at a steady pace, whites progressed nicely, the reds ripening well and then everything ripened up at once with lots of juggling between whites, rose and red ferments.
With the low yields and challenges of this harvest there is much anticipation around the final release of our 2022 vintage Estate whites and reds.
