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.
Vineyard
Tahbilk’s vineyards are grouped along the banks of the Goulburn River and an
anabranch of it which flows through the estate. The vines are grown at 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 estate blocks planted prior to 1986 are on ARG rootstocks and the vines 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
helps to control weeds and conserves water, reducing vine stress. The old vines were
hand-picked, younger vines were machine harvested.
Winemaking
The wine was made reductively, without contact with oxygen to preserve the fresh,
fruity character. After destemming the grapes were lightly crushed and cooled through
a heat exchanger, then pressed. The pressings were vinified separately; each was
clarified and fermented with neutral yeasts at 10 to 12°C. The wine did not undergo
malolactic conversion in order to preserve its crisp character. It was then stabilised,
medium filtered and blended prior to bottling.

mineral palate complemented by pear, Granny Smith apple and citrus fruits.
