2009 Tahbilk Museum Release Marsanne - bottle aged to perfection
Most wines are consumed too early in their life span where they are never allowed to reach their maximum potential or given a chance to truly reflect what makes them special.
Tahbilk, located in the central part of Australia's Victoria state and considered one of Australia's great wine estates (National Trust classification), is one of the world's great producers of Marsanne, having some of the largest and oldest plantings in the world. It is always nice when you can have access to a wine that has been allowed to develop some bottle age and with it, its unique characteristics. Tahbilk has a history that goes back to the 1860s and it has been in the current family since 1925. They still produce wines from vines planted in the 1860s.
Tahbilk makes a series of different Marsanne bottlings and their appropriately named Museum Release is considered one of Australia's true viticultural gems. The 2009 Tahbilk Museum Release has just come into our market and has all the trappings of being another beauty. For under $20, especially when the aging has been done for you, it is a pretty stellar offering. Even more so considering the fact that it still has a good number of years in front of it. They drink really well between 7 – 10 years from vintage so this is just starting to gain steam. We are offering the 2009 Tahbilk Museum Release Marsanne for $18.99 a bottle and $17.09 on a six bottle or more purchase which is a great price on something this unique and delicious. Stocks are extremely limited so as always first come first served.
