Winemaker Notes

Super fresh and lifted with dried spice, ginger, honeysuckle and lemon juice characters; the finish is steely and mineral edged with an acid line that will hold this wine in good stead for a further fifteen to twenty years should you be looking to cellar.

Wine & Spirits
The Purbrick family at Tahbilk farms the largest planting of marsanne in the world, propagated from their original vineyard, planted in 1927. Those first vines provide the fruit for this bottling. The color is light, the aroma floral and exotic, the flavors leesy in a way that brings Champagne to mind. It’s precise and harmonious, a wine that tastes like the outback and feels like it could live forever.

Wine Spectator
Shows good presence, opening with a whiff of lanolin that gives way to a whole wool sweater's worth of Meyer lemon and orange zest flavors. Waxy and mouthwateringly juicy on the finish. Drink now through 2027.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Scented of lemongrass, lanolin, straw and baker’s yeast with a quince and beeswax core, the 2008 1927 Vines Marsanne is light-bodied and dry, demonstrating evolution but it is not fading. Clean, fresh and with nice zing on the palate, it has great length and plenty of layers.

A large, climatically diverse country with incredibly diverse terrain, producing just about every wine style imaginable, Australia has a grand winemaking history and some of the oldest vines on the planet. Both red wine and white wine from Australian are wildly popular and beloved. Most of Australia's wine regions are concentrated in the south of the country with those inland experiencing warm, dry conditions and those in coastal areas receiving tropical, maritime or Mediterranean weather patterns. Australia has for several decades been at the forefront of winemaking technology and has widely adopted the use of screwcaps, even for some premium and ultra-premium bottles. Thanks to the country’s relatively agreeable climate throughout and the openness of its people, experimentation is common and ongoing.

Shiraz is indeed Australia’s most celebrated and widely planted variety; Barossa Valley leads the way, producing exceptionally bold and supple versions. Cabernet Sauvignon, Australia's second most planted variety, can be blended with Shiraz but also shines on its own particularly in Coonawarra and Margaret River. Grenache and Mourvèdre are also popular, both on their own and alongside Shiraz in Rhône Blends. Chardonnay is common throughout the country and made in a wide range of styles. Sauvignon Blanc has recently surged in popularity to compete with New Zealand’s distinctive version and Semillon is often blended in Margaret River or shines on its own in the Hunter Valley. Riesling thrives in the cool-climate Clare and Eden Valleys. Sticky-sweet fortified wine Rutherglen is a beloved regional specialty of Victoria.

One of the star whites of the Rhône Valley and ubiquitous throughout southern France, historically vignerons have favored Marsanne for its hardy and productive vines. It can make a fruity and delicious single varietal wine as well as a serious, full-bodied version with amazing aging potential. The best examples of Marsanne come from the northern Rhone appellations where it is also blended with Roussanne. Sommelier Secret—Some of the oldest Marsanne vines in the entire world exist not in France but in Australia, in the Victoria region. Settlers planted it in the mid to late 1800s, calling it “white Hermitage.”
