Marsanne 2016

Lemon in colour. See previous notes. Tahbilk have the oldest Marsanne grapes on earth dating back to 1927. Their best Cuvée of Marsanne is called 1927 and is made from those original plantings - very long lived. This entry level Cuvée is herbal, simple, uncomplicated, and refreshing with plenty of acid. A touch of honeysuckle developing but not as much as there will be with further cellaring. Finishes dry. A good mid week quaffer with potential. — 3 months ago

Estate Nagambie Lakes Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Complex nose of cherry, currant, menthol, Asian spice, and light roast coffee.

Ripe and juicy cherry and red plum with med acidity and med+ tannin. The tannins are smooth and well integrated. Nice, spicy oak notes on the finish.

Really delicious, well made stuff. A bit more oak than I remember from the '15, but it's well integrated.

1927 Vines Marsanne 2013

Clear, pale gold colour. Clean, pronounced minerality with petrol aromas more reminiscent of Riesling than Marsanne. Dry, high acidity, light bodied. Pronounced pear and lemon flavours with slate. An outstanding wine. — 9 months ago

Nagambie Lakes Roussanne-Marsanne-Viognier Blend 2015

Rich & broad, with nice structure and surprising freshness. Citrus & apricot mingles with almonds and herby undertones. On the palate quite textured with nice minerality and good balance. Works really well with strong, aged cheese. — 3 years ago

Plum, blackberry, black pepper, eucalyptus, some oak spice. Very juicy on the palate with ripe fruit, med acidity and soft tannin. Hints of oak. Quite elegant overall.
