2007 Tahbilk Marsanne "Museum Release" Nagambie Lakes Victoria
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+.
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)
