2017 Tahbilk One Million Cuttings Chardonnay
The appeal here is simple - James Hallidays's 2016 Winery of the Year Tahbilk have access to Chardonnay grapes from all over Victoria, picking the grapes when they're just ripe and maturing it all in older oak to preserve the clean and crisp apple peach fruit.
Ultimately that has helped deliver a seriously refreshing, well balanced white wine. A Chardonnay that combines delicious peachiness with careful oak and crisp acidity.
How’s it taste?
Lovely, varietal honeydew melon, peach fruit characters, some pineapple and tropical fruit undercurrents all working in symmetry with toasty spice from French and American oak, none dominating; stylish, elegant and balanced.
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.
