Producer Note
Established in 1860, Tahbilk is an historic family-owned winery, renowned for their rare
aged Marsanne. The estate has the world’s largest single holding of the varietal and
produces Marsanne from vines established in 1927, which are among the oldest in the
world. Tahbilk is known as ‘tabilk tabilk’ in the language of the Daungwurrung clans,
which translates as the ‘place of many waterholes’. It perfectly describes this premium
viticultural landscape, which is located in the Nagambie Lakes region of Central
Victoria. The estate comprises 1,214 hectares, including a seven mile frontage to the
Goulburn River. Environmental sustainability is paramount at Tahbilk and in 2013 they
became carbon neutral. In 2016, Tahbilk was awarded 'Winery of the Year' by James
Halliday.
Vintage
Winter rainfall returned to average levels which continued into spring, but tapered off,
thus irrigation took place from budburst through to the end of vintage. The season
looked particularly promising until a late, severe frost in mid-October hit delicate young
growth in many of the low-lying plains vineyards which are situated away from the
water and the native tree cover of the Tahbilk billabongs. A very hot, dry summer
resulted in an early start to the harvest. Despite the hot, dry summer the whites have
delicacy, crispness and definite varietal character.
Vineyard
Tahbilk’s vineyards are grouped along the banks of the Goulburn River and an
anabranch of it which flows through the estate. The water has a tempering influence
on the climate. The vines are grown at approximately 134 metres elevation of gently
undulating and flat terrain. The soils are sandy loam with ferric oxide content, which
vary from very fine sand near the anabranch to denser loams on the plains. The grapes
come from the single vineyard Madills 1927 block, where the vines planted prior to 1986
are on ARG rootstocks. They are trained on a single wire trellis with a mixture of head
and cordon training, with cane and spur pruning. Tahbilk's vines are sustainably
cultivated; composting and mulching takes place which improves soil health by
promoting earthworm activity. Mulching also helps to control weeds and conserves
water, reducing vine stress.
Winemaking
The hand-picked grapes were handled semi-oxidatively; controlled amounts of oxygen
were allowed which helped impart secondary flavours and texture to the wine.
Fermentation took place with selected neutral and aromatic yeasts at cool
temperatures and lasted for 20 days in stainless steel fermenters to enhance the purity
of fruit. Made with naturally high acidity to support serious long-term ageing, it was
matured in bottle for seven years.
Tasting Note
Complex aromas of mineral, lemon and orange citrus aromas are accompanied by
fresh hay overtones. Zesty notes of lemon, grapefruit, toast and classic rich honeysuckle
weave through the textured palate, beautifully balanced by vibrant acidity.
