Tahbilk Marsanne Nagambie Lakes 2004

Member Review by Michael at MAX:

Tahbilk 2004 MARSANNE Opened 29/10/09 Hard to knock this wine, I have been drinking this wine since it was $6.99 a bottle now it’s a little more, but it never fails to please. If you happen to stumble over an older one, buy it and be ready to be impressed: Nose: Honeyed hints of old wood, opening to a clean nose. No sign of spoilage. Colour: Molten straw with a golden green shimmer. In the mouth: I need to state, I drink white wines at a warmer tempter than most people. This wine offers a rich mouth full of soft citrus that cleans the palate with a light acid finish. Dam good booze at a give away price. Still only $17.00

Established in 1860 Tahbilk is one of Australia's most beautiful & historic wineries. Located in the Nagambie Lakes region of central Victoria (120kms north of Melbourne), one of the nation's premium viticultural areas, the property comprises some 1,214 hectares of rich river flats with a frontage of 11 kms to the Goulburn River and 8 kms of permanent backwaters & creeks. The vineyard comprises 200 hectares of vines including the French Rhone Valley whites of Marsanne, Viognier & Roussanne; the Rhone reds - Shiraz, Grenache & Mourvedre; along with traditional varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc & Verdelho. Vineyard plantings extend back to Tahbilk's founding with original pre-phylloxera Shiraz vines still surviving from 1860 - an eponymous wine produced from them since 1979. Tahbilk is further blessed with an abundance of further "old vine" plantings including Shiraz from 1933 (the prime source for Tahbilk's 'Eric Stevens Purbrick' Shiraz releases), Cabernet Sauvignon back to 1949 and Marsanne from 1927 (a "sister" white release to the 1860 Vines Shiraz produced from them). Harvest commences in early March and continues for five to six weeks with approximately 1,600 tonnes (red & white) grapes processed. Total production is over 100,000 cases with just over 20% being exported to the key markets of U.S.A., United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, Switzerland and the Scandinavian countries. Read less

Still young and coming along nicely. Maybe it needs a few more years yet, maybe another 5. Scored well in the AWWS 2008 and named in Darby's Top Ten wines of 2008.
