Established in 1860 Tahbilk is one of Australia’s most beautiful & historic wineries, located in the Nagambie Lakes region of Central Victoria and one of the nation’s premium viticultural areas. The vineyard comprises 200 hectares of vines including whites of Marsanne, Viognier and Roussanne; the reds – Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre as well as the traditional varieties. Tahbilk is further blessed with an abundance of “old vine” plantings including Shiraz from 1860, Cabernet Sauvignon back to 1949 and Marsanne from 1927. Tahbilk is the first Australian winery to be carboNZero certified at both an organisation and product level and one of only eight wineries in the world.
These limited release wines are produced from the Estate’s 1927 planted Marsanne vines – some of the oldest in the world.
This has an extra degree of concentration and complexity from vine age, extra years in bottle and the cool vintage. This is wonderfully fresh and delicate, citrus, apple and honeysuckle all on the same page. Sometimes the acidity can be too obvious for some, but not here.
