Tahbilk Marsanne 2017, Nagambie Lakes, Vic

by | Jul 9, 2024

Delicious wine with a touch of bottle age. Lemon sherbet, Rose’s Lime Juice cordial, lanolin and honey on the palate. Long palate with concentrated slightly pithy lemon, but creamy and honeyed on the finish. Soft palate but refreshing all the same. You would pay twice as much for a semillon from the Hunter for an aged unwooded white of this quality.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
