It wouldn’t be Tahbilk without Marsanne. First planted on the Estate in the 1860s, we have largest single holding of this unique varietal worldwide including surviving vines dating back to 1927, amongst the oldest in the world.
Showing some typical aged Marsanne development on the nose ... toasty, honeysuckle, and a hint of marzipan. The nose gives indication for some complexity on the palate that is delivered alongside still youthful traditional lemon and lime characters on the palate. Subtle hints of lanolin on a deliciously clean finish.
Don't take our word for it ...
"Light straw-green, a flowery honeysuckle perfume translates into a delciuos mouthfeel, mineral acidity subdued by a generous serving of lime, Granny Smith apple and guava fruits. Once it has reached the plateau of its overall flavour, it will coast for another three to five years."
James Halliday's '2023 Top 20 Whites Under $30' I The Weekend Australian | November 2023
"A long-time champion of marsanne, Tahbilk celebrates both its youthful energy and its aged beauty across a range of wines. Here we see the latter in all of its near-ageless allure, maintaining the honeysuckle, citrus, appley brightness of its youth while starting to build on its earlier promise of beeswax smooth texture with a developing gentle toastiness.
Another stunning museum release. It's hard to believe it's six years old."

Reviews for 2017 Marsanne on release ...
“It is a summer favourite for those in the know, a whiff of jasmine to start, then juicy with a mouth-watering display of tropical fruits, apples and pears sprinkled with lime juice, finishing with salivating pith and minerals. Imagine a wine version of apple and guava juice.”
