TAHBILK 2011 MARSANNE WEB SPECIAL11.5% Alcohol
Enjoy Now to 2021+ - Screw Cap Closure
“This Nagambie Lakes white has it all; pedigree, classical style, drinkability, age worthiness, low price. Floral, honeyed, citrusy, light yet intense. Spring-like and pure, it will be rich and complex with time.”
Ralph Kyte-Powell – Melbourne Age
“Comes as part of a long and distinguished series of wines, the screwcap guaranteeing the development of honeyed, toasty flavours and aromas over the coming decade. Pale green-straw; at the start of a long life, already expressive and juicy, with a mix of lime and honeysuckle on the impressively long palate; has the acidity for long ageing.” 93 Points
James Halliday - wine companion.com.au
“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 for 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 star fruit.”
Tyson Stelzer – Wine Taste Weekly
“One of Victoria’s legend wines, priced for everyone to taste and enjoy. It’s wispy and delicate to the nose, a waft of pears and lemons perhaps, sitting them easily in the mouth, a dash of savoury, earthy herbs, and a crispness and bite to suit most food offerings. Buy a box and let them age gracefully – its magic in a bottle.
Tony Love – Melbourne Herald Sun
“Light floral aromas and attractive varietal flavours with lovely palate structure and light acid. 3 Stars”
“The nose and palate of this central Victorian classic show citrus and honeysuckle characters, with a long mineral acid finish.
It’s a great match now with lighter seafood dishes but these wines can age for many years, developing rich honey and toast flavours.”
Mike Frost – Brisbane Courier Mail
“Citrus & herbal aromatics and flavours with background suggestions of honeyed pear, the palate light, bright & nicely balanced with a good refreshingly dry finish.
Enjoy it now or put it away for a few years and see it dramatically change into a wonderfully rich and complex honeyed gem.”
Graeme Phillips - Sunday Tasmanian
“At Tahbilk, this Rhone Valley variety makes a distinctive, potentially very long-lived dry white.
The aroma and flavour have often been described as honeysuckle-like – something I don’t always detect, but do in the 2011.
The style’s grown slightly finer and more delicate over the last decades. But behind the honeysuckle and citrus flavours lie tangy acidity and a firm, savoury bite.”
Chris Shanahan – Sunday Canberra Times
“Always underpriced always over-achieves, and in the same way as Hunter Semillon, can hang in there for years becoming more complex and honeyed as time marches on. But enough talk of ageing, it’s a damn fine drink as a youngster, exhibiting honeysuckle, apple blossom, straw, ripened honey-dew melon and an underlying core of citrus. It’s nicely rounded through the mouth with a kind of dough-like complexity, a waxy fruit texture and lots of apple and citrus with a crisp, clean finish.
|It’s a veritable bargain and can frequently be found for much less than its RRP. Buy a box of it, drink some, cellar the rest.”
