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.
Hailing largely from a sturdy block of the world's oldest marsanne vines, this Museum release sees considerable bottle age before release. The result is a kaleidoscope of orange blossom, bees wax, freshly lain tatami mat and apricot pith, unravelling along a beam of tart acidity and talcy mineral force. Time has imbued considerable complexity despite lower alcohols of recent years and less texture than befits many marsannes.
