Food Pairings for Tahbilk Marsanne Nagambie Lakes
I admit to being somewhat of a scrounge at "bin end" sales and in a recent scrounge came across the well-respected Tahbilk Marsanne (vines date to 1927). This amazing value could not be passed up; unbelievably, the wine remains slightly backward but with nice acidity, stone fruit nose, Hermitage-like viscosity and wonderful Rhone-style depth. This is white wine for a person looking for punch without tooth-blackening anthocyanidins. A wonderful wine with a wonderful price that begs for another 2-4 years in the bottle at least. Seek it out and lay it up.
*Awarded a Gold Medal - International Wine and Spirits Challenge* Established in 1860, Tahbilk is one of Australia’s most historic wineries and vineyard plantings extend back to Tahbilk's founding with original pre-phylloxera Shiraz vines still surviving from 1860. The Purbrick family have owned the Tahbilk Estate since 1925 and continue the family tradition with Alister Purbrick as head winemaker and his daughter Hayley, a 5th generation family member. The bouquet and palate of this unique, unwooded style, exhibits intense aromas of lemon, honey and peach, whilst the finish is long and flavoursome, balanced with crisp acidity. These complex characters will develop with bottle age into the familiar honeysuckle fragrance traditionally associated with Marsanne. Try with seafood and chicken salads.
