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.

Originating in Condrieu in Frances Northern Rhone Valley, Tahbilks first plantings of Viognier were established in 1990. The inaugural vintage was released in 1996 to early critical acclaim. Tahbilk Viognier releases are considered to be best appreciated as youthful and exuberant wines when their distinguishing floral and stone fruit characters are to the fore.

The perfection of the growing season has provided a luxurious wine, packed with flavours spanning ripe stone fruits through to shafts of fresh ginger, and a sprightly mouthfeel. Breaks all the rules of convention. Drink to: 2024; Price: $21.00; Date Tasted: November 2021; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Tahbilk planted Viognier (and Roussanne) in 1990 so their Marsanne vines wouldn’t be a lone Rhone ranger. Trademark ginger and apricot with lemon rind and orange zest citrus. Savoury, earthy wet sand and sweet clove spice. Viognier’s tendency to drift into waxy or flabby territory (though palate weight is still prevalent with plenty of varietal stone fruit flesh) is well held here with sharp and bright acidity. Fine and balanced through the finish. A very good example. Rating: 93 Points; VinoNoteBook
