    Full Description

    Enjoy Now to 2028/2030
    First planted on the Estate in our founding year and with surviving vines dating back to 1927 that are amongst the oldest in the world, Marsanne is the white varietal on the winemaker’s tasting bench that sees the excitement levels rise each vintage.
    Fruit intensity is the hallmark of Estate releases from the 2020 vintage and the Marsanne from this year delivers to that end in spades.
    Lifted floral, citrus and tropical fruits are further enlivened by a bright mineral acidity that refreshes now and will support the development of classic honeysuckle and toasty, marmalade characters with further time in the bottle.
    One for the ages that will delight right now with your favourite Asian stir fry or preferred grilled fish.

    “Tahbilk has made Marsanne its own, the quality and style seemingly set in stone, or should I say steel. Citrus, apple and pear now, honeysuckle biding its time, because it is certain to arrive in a year or 2, when the texture of the wine will be transformed.”
    James Halliday | Halliday 2022 Wine Companion | www.winecompanion.com.au

    "This often unheard of white variety has tropical, citrus and floral notes when enjoyed now. Marsanne can also be aged, for eight to ten years, and will develop honeysuckle, toasty, marmalade characters over time."
    Kara Irving | Melbourne Herald Sun

    “This might be a familiar brand but that doesn’t mean you should dismiss it. The 2020 is the most appealing young Tahbilk Marsanne I can remember tasting: white flowers, mandarin cream, a whisper of spice. Delicious now, it’s also a sure bet for the cellar: Tahbilk Marsanne develops wonderful complex and golden flavours over many years in the bottle."
    Max Allen | The Top 20 Wines of 2020 | Australian Financial Review

    “This is a particularly fruity, fruit salad’y, open-for-business expression of Tahbilk Marsanne. It’s both pleasant and pleasing, but it’s also well balanced and tantalisingly persistent. You can go out now, no problems. But it can also be cellared with confidence. 92 Points.
