The Tahbilk Marsanne is one of Victoria's most cellarworthy white wines - it will live for decades!

In this youthful form, it's a fresh, slightly neutral, deceptively structured white wine with this beautiful hint of honeysuckle.

Age will be very kind too...

Expert Reviews

"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." 94 points - James Halliday's Wine Companion

How's it taste?

Bright fruit aromas of lemon, lime, pear and guava with floral notes of apple blossom and jasmine. The palate is juicy and taut with lovely citrus and marmalade flavours with hints of savoury spice and minerality towards the finish.

How was it made?

One of the world's rarest grape varieties originating in the Northern Rhone & Hermitage regions of France it is grown in only 3 other countries, Australia, America & Switzerland. Tahbilk holds the largest and oldest single holding of the variety in the world. Tahbilk's history with Marsanne is traced back to the 1860's with the sourcing of 'White Hermitage' cuttings from the 'St Hubert’s' Vineyard in Victoria's Yarra Valley. The grape was Marsanne and although none of these plantings have survived, the Estate still produces Marsanne from plantings dating back to 1927.

Who made it?

The name Tahbilk comes from the language of the Daung-wurrung clans, the first people in the area. They called it tabilk-tabilk which means place of many waterholes. Tahbilk Wines was established in 1860 in the Nagambie lakes sub region of Victoria’s Goulburn Valley. It is home to a unique meso-climate, influenced by inland lakes and lagoons fed from the Goulburn River. Purchased by the Purbrick family in 1925, Tahbilk is home to 5 generations. Tahbilk is home to 200 hectares of vine, including the traditional Rhone Valley varietals Marsanne, Viognier, Roussanne, Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre. Classic varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Verdelho are also present. Tahbilk's flagship 1860 Vines Shiraz is produced from the estate’s original 1/2 ha of ungrafted, pre-phylloxera Shiraz vines that are amongst the oldest in the world.
