Full Description

Enjoy Now to 2029/2031

Rated as a stellar vintage for Estate whites, our 2021 release has all of the readily identifiable characters expected of a Tahbilk Marsanne.
Lifted floral and spice aromas, intense lemon/lime and tropical fruits, subtle honeysuckle notes, finishing with a razor-sharp, mineral acidity.
Time in the bottle will see further richness and complexity evolve.

Don't take our word for it ...

"The Nagambie Lakes shared the great vintage for whites, and Tahbilk didn't miss out here, oozing with honeysuckle, lime and custard apple, the signature of acidity neatly tying the parcel up for now or in a decade or two. It's a dead set gold medal. 95 Points"
James Halliday | Top 100 Wines of 2021 | Weekend Australian | winecompanion.com.au 

"Wonderful signature chalk, honeysuckle and light beeswax with fresh ginger, rosewater, finger lime and yellow citrus and a touch of green pomme fruit. The right amount of just-there texture and weight with fine, driving acidity and long flavour tail finishing dry and mouthwatering. Overdelivering yet again."

“There’s been some subtle variations in style for Tahbilk’s iconic white in recent years (tight and herbal, rounder and fruity) yet this Tahbilk Marsanne 2021
feels classical.
It’s svelte and built for the long term, with grapefruit acidity and just a little honeysuckle fruit, and late pear juice. It’s a wine of taut lines and yet it doesn’t feel hard – the comparison to ripe year Hunter Semillon is more apparent than ever. Yet as a young wine you’re scratching for much flavour.
How patient are you? Best drinking: come back in four years, then drink over twenty.”
Andrew Graham | www.ozwinereview.com

“Benchmark Marsanne in any given year and most especially in the great vintage of 2021, this wine manages to convey several different things, all in concert with each other: tropical fruit (think pineapple, green mango, pink grapefruit, new season paw-paw and a little chunk of guava), minerality (brine, limestone, shale and graphite), pithy acidity and length of flavour that is downright impressive.
The coolest part of this wine is its ageing potential. It has a proven track record for going decades in the cellar, and has no business being that good at this price.”
Life by the Drop | Subiaco Post, Perth

“Not many would have heard of Marsanne, but the Northern Rhone native is having a moment at Nagambie’s Tahbilk. The winery’s drawcard has an enticing, soft palate of white peaches, honeydew melon, jasmine, citrus and wonderful, minerality. The acidity is subdued. 
A harmonious, fine wine that’ll get finer over time in the bottle.”
Melbourne Herald Sun
