    A challenging vintage, that included a 1 in 100-year flood event, has delivered wines of wonderful depth of flavour and character. The intense floral, citrus and tropical fruits of this iconic Marsanne testament to that ... fresh acidity and a clean minerality adding to its appeal.

    About this winei

    Enjoy Now to 2028/2030
    First planted on the Estate in the 1860’s, Tahbilk has the largest single holding of this unique varietal worldwide including vines dating back to 1927 … among the oldest in the world.

    Vintage 2023
    At Tahbilk, we like to say that every bottle tells a story, so in that case, the stories behind Vintage 2023 will be some of the most dramatic.
    In October 2022, Tahbilk Estate bore the brunt of a 1 in 100-year flood, which affected our vines, impacted yields, and affected us, the Tahbilk team. Our vines have bounced back, thankfully with no long-term damage and minimal, if any attrition. In fact, if you walk around today you couldn’t tell that over half of the vineyard had been under water. As for the team, this challenge will ultimately make us stronger.
    Then, as with every season, we were presented with a ‘normal’ set of issues around the weather, adding further to our taxing season. The summer’s heat came quickly, and the ground once full of water was dry again, so we irrigated. Then the rain came, we stopped irrigating and waited for the weather to pass.
    It then became cool, the length of the season caught up with us, and not everything ripened so sadly we ended up leaving fruit on the vines … including our iconic 1860 Shiraz!
    The yields for the season, albeit low, have produced some very fine wines that embody the demands of this season, wines that we are extremely proud of and proud to share.
    So, when you are lucky enough to drink a Tahbilk wine from the 2023 season, think of the season, and think of us.
