2020 Marsanne, Tahbilk

Victoria, AustraliaVintage: 2020

Established in 1860, Tahbilk is a historic family-owned winery, renowned for its Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and of course their Marsanne!

Marsanne is one of the world’s rarest grape varieties originating in the Northern Rhone & Hermitage regions of France it is grown in only 3 other countries, Australia, America & Switzerland. Tahbilk holds the largest and oldest single holding of the variety in the world.

Tahbilk’s history with Marsanne is traced back to the 1860s with the sourcing of ‘White Hermitage’ cuttings from the ‘St Hubert’s’ Vineyard in Victoria’s Yarra Valley. The grape was Marsanne and although none of these plantings has survived, the Estate still produces Marsanne from plantings dating back to 1927.

This 2020 Marsanne has grapefruit zest and citrus floral aromas that are carried through to a decidedly lively, mineral palate complemented by pear, Granny Smith apple and citrus fruits.  Delicious with white fish baked in a lemon butter sauce.
