Let’s Taste – Tahbilk Spring 2016 Releases

I’m no stranger to Tahbilk Wines, having not only tasted a number of releases over the last 12 months on Let’s Taste, but also having chatted with owner Alister Purbrick on my wine podcast The Vincast about one year ago. They sent me some new releases for Spring, and I opened them up to have a look. The four wines were;
Marsanne 2016
Riesling 2016
Viognier 2016
Cane Cut Marsanne 2012 (500ml)

Tahbilk Marsanne, Riesling & Viognier 2016 and Cane Cut Marsanne 2012

    Hi James, ( Tahbilk’s ) Marsanne has somewhat of a reputation of morphing into wine of heightened complexity with extended bottle age. Do you think the 2016 sampled might have a worthwhile future?

    • In all honesty Ray, I couldn’t tell you as I’ve had very limited experience tasting both young and old examples. I’ve been told that it evolves quite a lot in bottle like Hunter Valley Semillon can, but for me the wine is very neutral when it’s young, and most people wouldn’t be buying it to cellar, they are drinking it now. Thanks for watching and commenting, great to hear from you!
