Tahbilk is one of those wineries that seems to effortlessly exude a sense of history and authenticity, which is laudable in itself, but doubly so considering its reputation rests in part on some wines that, let us say, aren’t exactly at the forefront of vinous fashion.
It has aromas of preserved lemon, pineapple and other, similarly pungent, yellow things. It’s a very appealing, fresh aroma profile, really direct in the way it communicates its composition. Soft and aromatic that will age splendidly.
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“Light yellow gold. Intense aromas of lemon, honey and peach. The aromas carry through to the palate. The finish is long and flavoursome balanced with crisp acidity. These complex characters will develop with bottle age into the familiar honeysuckle fragrance traditionally associated with Marsanne. Drink now, or this wine will age well.” – Winemaker Alistair Purbrick
Judges at the 2009 International Wine Challenge have joined in awarding it a Silver Medal and commenting ‘Light, clean and fresh, limey and bright with a racy edge. There are fresh fruit notes, good intensity and freshness, with a balanced, perfect finish.’
