Tahbilk's Marsanne is a classic, distinctive Australian version of a key Rhône Valley white wine. The varietal honeysuckle aromas and flavours develop as it ages, and it can be enjoyed as a fresh and lively style or cellared for extra complexity. Has been a stable in many wine cellars in Australia for decades due its affordability and ability to age incredibly well.
Lemon/citrus is dominant at this stage, but there is a hint of honey on the finish and aftertaste that will grow into full-on honey and honeysuckle in five-plus years.

Few Australian white wines match heritage with value as Tahbilk Marsanne does. The 2011 is on song, a glittering youngster with aromas of blossom, stone fruits citrus and honey&varietally pure, with a long, clean finish.

Green acids and slightly unripe fruit - apple and pear, some honey florals but very 2011. Spice. Light and fresh, quite energetic, but the acid is too green for me. Maybe time will be kind?

One of Australias greatest wine treasures. Minerally and tight as a young wine, this can and does age for decades, becoming a wine of generosity and honeyed complexity. This release is a benchmark.
