2007 Tahbilk Marsanne "Museum Release" Nagambie Lakes Victoria

SKU #1089392 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Museum Release Marsanne gives notes of hay, toasted almonds and baking bread over a core of lemon curd, lime leaves and apple tart. The dry, light-bodied palate fills the mouth with evolving savory / nut and citrus fruit flavors, with a good backbone of lively acid, and finishes long. Drink this one now to 2017+.

K&L Notes

When the normal bottling of the '07 Tahbilk Marsanne was reviewed by James Halliday, he gave it 93 points and here's what he had to say. "Clean and fragrant; more varietal fruit and flavour than most young marsannes from France or Australia; mineral, spice and honeysuckle cohabit on a long, crisp finish. A CLASSIC in the making." The bouquet of the Museum Release offers notes of lanolin, lemongrass, citrus pith and a light nutty accent. On the palate the wine shows a creamy texture with good acidity supporting a very long finish. (Jim Chanteloup, K&L Australian Buyer)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Marsanne

- If you've ever enjoyed the white wines of France's Rhône Valley, then you've probably inhaled the intoxicating honeysuckle and almond perfume of Marsanne. Most often blended with Roussanne and, increasingly, Viognier, Marsanne adds body and perfume to the wines of St-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage and St-Péray. It also planted in small amounts in Australia and the United States, where California's Rhône Rangers have embraced it. Aliases include Ermitage, Hermitage Blanc, Marsana and Grosse Roussette.
Country:

Australia

- While it is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since. The majority of the great Region are in the southeastern area of the continent, with the Barossa Valley, Claire Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia, the Yarra Yarra Velley and Pyrenees in Victoria and the Upper and Lower Hunter Valleys in New South Wales. Many of the wines from Southeastern Australia are based on Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon and various blends including Grenache and Mourvedre. In Western Australia, along the Margaret River, great strides are being made with Pinot Noir as well as Bordeaux-styled reds. There are also many world-class releases of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling from the land Down Under. While many equate Aussie wines with "value", there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world.
