2017 Tahbilk Marsanne Magnum (1500ml)
Honeysuckle, beeswax and wisteria on the bouquet, then firm, racy mineral and Meyer lemon on the palate, gaining velocity and depth of fruit flavour as it does. Drink by 2030.
James Halliday – Australian Wine Companion
The one and only Tahbilk Marsanne.
It cuts a good groove between outright daring and come-hither fruit flavour. It has darting acidity and a sure line of lemon, but it wraps it in honeysuckle and assorted florals, the external prettiness disguising the stern interior. Time will be kind – it almost goes without saying. There’s a grab of flavour and the structure to hold it. Right now it tastes, more than anything, very young. Drink by 2026+.
