First planted on the Estate in the 1860s, Tahbilk has the largest single holding of Marsanne worldwide including vines dating back to 1927 that are amongst the oldest in the world.
Cutting the canes of the vine and allowing the fruit to hang prior to harvest concentrates the flavours and sugars to produce a luscious wine.
Enjoy Now to 2026/2028
Offering lush tropical and citrus marmalade characters with sweet honeysuckle touches; a fresh and mineral-like grape acidity on the finish allows the delightful sweetness of Tahbilk 2018 'Cane Cut' Marsanne to shine through without being cloying. Delicious with stinky cheeses or summer puddings or just because you enjoy life on the sweet side!
“Marsanne gets to showcase its versatility at Tahbilk. Here, it knocks the dessert-style sweetie out of the park with its complexity and adroit winemaking. Striking gold/green hue. Orange peel, nougat, stone fruit and candied-fruit aromas transform into utter lusciousness on the palate. Smooth as glass. Can take chilling.”
