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 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.
