Tahbilk Marsanne Cane Cut Nagambie Lakes 2014

Notes of dried apricot and pineapple combine with honeysuckle, butter and hazelnut, rich and opulent balanced by a refreshing finish.

Producer Note - Established in 1860, Tahbilk is an historic family-owned winery, renowned for their rare aged Marsanne. The estate has the world's largest single holding of the varietal and produces Marsanne from vines established in 1927, which are among the oldest in the world. Tahbilk is known as 'tabilk tabilk' in the language of the Daungwurrung clans, which translates as the 'place of many waterholes'. It perfectly describes this premium viticultural landscape, which is located in the Nagambie Lakes region of Central Victoria. The estate comprises 1,214 hectares, including a seven mile frontage to the Goulburn River. Environmental sustainability is paramount at Tahbilk and in 2013 they became carbon neutral. In 2016, Tahbilk was awarded 'Winery of the Year' by James Halliday.

Vintage - Winter rainfall returned to average levels which continued into spring, but tapered off, thus irrigation took place from budburst through to the end of vintage. The season looked particularly promising until a late, severe frost in mid-October hit delicate young growth in many of the low-lying plains vineyards which are situated away from the water and the native tree cover of the Tahbilk billabongs. A very hot, dry summer resulted in an early start to the harvest. Despite the hot, dry summer the whites have delicacy, crispness and definite varietal character.

Vineyard - Tahbilk's vineyards are grouped along the banks of the Goulburn River and an anabranch of it which flows through the estate. The water has a tempering influence on the climate. The vines are grown at approximately 134 metres elevation of gently undulating and flat terrain. The soils are sandy loam with ferric oxide content, which vary from very fine sand near the anabranch to denser loams on the plains. The origin of the older block vines is unknown but ampelography inspection suggests a mixture of varieties. The blocks planted prior to 1986 are on ARG rootstocks and are in very good health. The spur and cane-pruned vines are spaced at 2.1 x 3 metres and are trained according to a mixture of head and cordon methods. This wine is named after the practice of cutting the canes, where the fruiting cane is detached from the vine. The bunches of grapes are left to hang prior to harvest, drying the fruit which concentrates the flavours and sugars, resulting in a luscious wine.

Winemaking - The hand-picked grapes were handled reductively. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures with selected neutral and aromatic yeasts and lasted 10 days. Fermentation was arrested by chilling to 2°C at approximately 120 grams residual sugar resulting in this lusciously sweet wine. Bottled early to preserve the purity of fruit.

Tasting Note - Opulent citrus and tropical fruit characters are complemented by lush marmalade, nutty and honeysuckle notes on a richly opulent palate, refreshed by a mineral-like acidity.

The technical information on this wine is correct to the best of our knowledge at the time of publication. This information may be subject to change according to vintage.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.


What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!


What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 


What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
