"One of the best Marsanne's in this long & distinguished line. It retains the essential fine tightness of the style yet there is a slightly juicy fleshiness, which is part of this vintage and which I find most appealing. Touches of citrus and typical honeysuckle. A wine that is drinking well now but has some real ageing potential. 91/100."
Ray Jordan – West Australian
"Wine of the Week
Few white wines around the $15.00 mark have as much individuality, heritage and style as Tahbilk Marsanne.
This central-Victoria classic is also worthy of bottle age, building richness and dimension as the years pass. The 2010 edition may not be quite as impressive as the outstanding ’09 was in youth but it’s still excellent.
The nose typifies young Marsanne’s ethereal floral aroma, with citrus fruit notes and minerally thread backing things up. It tastes elegant and pure, light but not inconsequential, with mouth-watering fruit-acid balance and a fine finish."
Ralph Kyte-Powell – The Age Epicure Uncorked
“Marsanne should be a much easier sell in Australia. It’s a big hit in southern France where the climate tends to be similar. It is tasty, can age well, goes great with food and doesn’t break the bank. Tahbilk makes arguably Australia’s best. Floral aromas, and a quite tight flavour profile of citrus, lemon and some stonefruit richness, balanced out by some minerally acid. Elegant and super value. Will be a cracker in five years.”
Rick Allen – Manly Daily
“In the me-too line up on most retail shelves, Tahbilk Marsanne stands out. It’s become a signature wine style for Tahbilk and under Alister Purbrick the style has become finer. Marsanne, a Rhone Valley white variety, tends to be fat and slightly hard. But the long lived Tahbilk style takes the rough edges off. The 2010 is fresh and bright, with lemon/lemon zest notes, a bone dry, savoury palate and a little tweak of tannin in the finish.”
