Established in 1860 and purchased by the Purbrick family in 1925, Tahbilk has the world’s largest single holding of Marsanne, a grape that plays a major role in some of the worlds most famed white wines, those of Hermitage in Northern Rhone.

Brilliant very pale straw in colour with a subtle tinge of green to the outskirts and a watery hue. Nosing offers up scents of green apple, pear and lime followed by hints of honeysuckle, lemon butter and delicate spice. Light and refreshing yet nicely rounded texturally on the mid palate it features pear, green apple and lime fruits over traces of honeysuckle and some mineral elements. Finishes dry with brisk acidity and a lengthy aftertaste that shows good intensity.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 13%

Other Reviews….
This is a reserved release and that, you’d have to argue, is a good thing. It has all the right components but it needs time for it to flesh out. Blossomy citrus and slate characters come with whispers of fennel and musk. The mouthfeel, dry riverstone-like, is very good, as is the general flow of it. At this early stage this looks to be in a very good/excellent place. Drink 2024-2040.
