Tahbilk Marsanne 2013


Tahbilk's marsanne is a local institution of sorts - a low priced wine that drinks well currently, ages gracefully and has a long local history too.  The 2013 vintage is a pale intensity lemon in colour, and has aromatics of yellow grapefruit, musk sticks, apricot blossom and lemon.  The palate is dry with medium acidity and body, and flavours reminding of grapefruit and lemons, with some suggestions of minerals and hay.  The 2013 vintage is a bit closed and non-expressive on the palate at this point in its life, but could be expected to evolve with time.  Acceptable to Good
