Tahbilk Nagambie Lakes Marsanne 2017

discovery

#1

Back in stock from the 11th. I’ll be sticking a case in reserves. Can’t imagine it will stick around too long. Get it while you can :wink:.


#2

I love a good marsanne - added to my wishlist.

Thanks!


#3

This has got great age ability and just gets better and better.


#4

I have 7 bottles of the 2015 still. Might skip this vintage…


#5

If another member would like to share a case to get 6 rather than 12 for the full case offer price per bottle (saving £2/bottle), then please send me a message. (I hope that wouldn’t contravene any society rules.)

Here here @Leah !

Because this wine is delicious from the word go, I suspect a lot of people don’t recognise exactly how well it does age.

Tahbilk provide a vintage chart for all their wines that can be cellared, to give an idea of how mature they may be. It’s a bit hard to find on their site, but here is a link to it -

You’ll see that the first vintage of their Marsanne that they reckon to be ready is the 2003! I am drinking my way through a case of the 2006 and can confirm that it is still improving (though very delicious now).

Its current in the great savings offer:

I bought a case and its going into my reserves to be delivered over the next 7 years!


#8

Is 2017 a standout vintage for Victoria?


#9

Thanks for the link @Ghost-of-Mr-Tallis, I’ve put a case in reserves.


#10

There’s a quite detailed chart here:

https://www.winecompanion.com.au/resources/vintage-chart

which suggests not for this particular wine, but that’s the only source I’ve looked at.


#11

I just got back from Australia, where I had a bottle of their ‘Museum Release’. I can’t remember which vintage, but it was quite mature and absolutely delicious. Thanks for highlighting this, I’ve ordered a case for my reserves.


#12

Apparently available from Fortnum and Mason :wink:


#13

ugh this one sold out in no time.

Annoying as usual that it just disappears from the website and my wish-list with no trace of it ever having existed.


#14

It’s not entirely disappeared:

but that doesn’t help your wishlist.


#15

It sells out so fast - unsurprisingly as it’s delicious and ridiculous value. Their similarly priced white blend ‘the tower’ gets very poor reviews on the society site, anyone here agree or disagree with those reviews?


#16

I’ve tasted it , it’s not in the Marsanne league but it’s not terrible either . It’s a perfectly fine easy drinking everyday type wine . I haven’t read any of the reviews … but now I will :rofl:
