Tahbilk Marsanne 2020
Having the biggest single holding in the world of this variety, Tahbilk have definitely made marsanne their signature grape. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel – what we smell and taste in the glass is the intrinsic varietal character.
The bouquet shows aromas of waxy florals, citron (which I also call fat lemon) and pear. Fresh honeydew melon and green papaya dominate the palate with hints of legume/cereal and apricot kernel that I always see in marsanne and a roundness that defines this variety.
