5 in stock
Roving Sommelier is passionate about premium quality Australian regional wines. The Tahbilk story began in 1860 with the founding of the Estate and original vineyards. Purchased by Reginald Purbrick in 1925, five generations of the family have been actively involved in Tahbilk bringing a tradition of pride, hard work and a love of good wine to the unique heritage of being the oldest family owned winery and vineyard in Victoria, Australia.
2018 Marsanne- First planted on the Estate in the 1860s, Tahbilk has the largest single holding of this unique varietal worldwide including surviving vines dating back to 1927, amongst the oldest in the world. This latest in a very, very long line of Estate Marsanne releases carries grapefruit zest and citrus floral aromas to a decidedly lively mineral palate of pear, Granny Smith apple and lemon/lime fruits. Dedicated cellaring for a further ten years from vintage will be repaid with the development of lovely, honeyed, toast and citrus characters.
Best enjoyed served chilled with or without food and in a convivial atmosphere.
