Tahbilk Marsanne 2017 (Nagambie)
Tahbilk Marsanne 2017 vintage shows an early flavour development with this latest release, the result of a long growing season.
Those flavours are fresh and zesty lemon/lime, pear and guava fruits alongside apple blossom and jasmine aromas.
Juicy and taut now with savoury and mineral touches, careful cellaring will realise noted marmalade and honeyed notes.
SOLD OUT - Tahbilk Marsanne 2018 vintage is now available.
The name Tahbilk originates from our location, which the local aboriginal people first referred to as "tabilk-tabilk", meaning "place of many waterholes". Originally spelled Tabilk, the 'h' was added later.
Tahbilk is home to some 200 hectares of vineyards specialising in grape varietals from the Rhone including whites varietals: Marsanne, Viognier and Roussanne and red varietals Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre. Also growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Verdelho grapes.
Tahbilk first planted Marsanne 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. Winery Notes
"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."
