Wine tasting notes

Lively aromas of white peach, apricot, orange blossom and a touch of honeysuckle. Mouthwatering tropical fruits on the palate with notes of citrus, marmalade and honey, underpinned by delicate minerality and a lovely crisp, linear acidity running through the core. Complex, mouthfilling and delicious, with a very long length.

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2014) - 86 pts

Feb 2015 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown - The 2014 Marsanne displays beautiful white blossom and white peach aromas with acacia honey and lemon curd in the undercurrent. The palate gives a good amount of peachy, citrus-laced flavors with a light body, just enough acidity and a medium to long finish.

Tasted Oct 2011 - Lemon sherbet, oyster, minerals, smoke and steel. Floral and peachy. Might not seem like much at first glance, but has form to age interestingly. (RH)


Wine Spectator (2014) - 89 pts

A lovely, crisp and fresh mix of peach blossom and guava notes that are clean and refreshing. Finishes with a lingering hint of fennel. Drink now.–MW


James Halliday (2015) - 95 pts

The honeysuckle aroma of this marsanne bursts out of the glass when swirled, perhaps a hint of jasmine or field flowers too. The palate lives up to the promise and then some: the variety is often sotto voce when young, but here it is exuberant, aided by chalky acidity.


Wine Front (2014) - 93+ pts

t is of course one of Australia’s wine wonders. There’s nothing shabby about this release. It drinks well young but it will age. Shows some perfumed, tropical fruit up front but it then gets down to serious, citrussy, chalky business through the finish. Very good length. Pure expression of marsanne. Not without texture. Good now but should drink better again in three or four years – or thereafter.


Tyson Stelzer (2011) - 92 pts

Tahbilk marsanne is an institution. From estate vines now averaging thirty years of age, it's charming straight out of the fermenter, it ages magically and it's impressed me over four decades. 2011 is a particularly outstanding vintage, fresher and zestier than ever and carrying a wonderfully persistent texture. All the classic lemon and lime flavours are here, with hints of guava, custard apple and starfruit.
