Tahbilk Marsanne 2000

Tahbilk's 2000 vintage of its marsanne revealed a rather remarkable fresh, yet oxidative, aroma of nuts and oil.  Amazing.  Yet, so rarely in my experience, a wonderful aroma led to a disappointing palate, with a persistent slightly unpleasant elevated acidity marring otherwise pleasant flavours.  80 points.

Was this the 1927 Vines Sean?
It was the 1927 vines wine. I tasted this wine with a few other people (including the fine wine guy selling it), and the verdict was unfortunately fairly unanimous on the palate. Gee, I loved the nose though!
