Tahbilk 2020 Release Wines

Tahbilk 2020 Release Wines

The Tahbilk 2020 release wines are an exciting collection of wines from the 2020 vintage, these are the first that we’ve seen this year and are showing excellent craftsmanship from the wine-making team. The fruit picked to make these wines are from the Tahbilk Estate vineyards, with some of the most outstanding fruit. 

Alongside the 2020 vintage wines, Tahbilk also sets aside wines from past vintages for its Museum Wines Collection. Each year the wines are taste tested by the Tahbilk tasting panel, who nominate when a past vintage is ready to be released. You’ll find these wines that have been aged in the Tahbilk underground cellars, for a number of years, to be the best of the best wines that Tahbik will produce.

2020 MARSANNE

$18.95 CELLAR DOOR$16.95WINE CLUB

13.0% Alcohol | Enjoy Now to 2028/2030

First planted on the Estate in our founding year and with surviving vines dating back to 1927 that are amongst the oldest in the world, Marsanne is the white varietal on the winemaker’s tasting bench that sees the excitement levels rise each vintage.
Fruit intensity is the hallmark of Estate releases from the 2020 vintage and the Marsanne from this year delivers to that end in spades.
Lifted floral, citrus and tropical fruits are further enlivened by a bright mineral acidity that refreshes now and will support the development of classic honeysuckle and toasty, marmalade characters with further time in the bottle.
One for the ages that will delight right now with your favourite Asian stir fry or preferred grilled fish, and a great introduction to Tahbilk 2020 release wines.

2020 PINOT GRIS

$18.95 CELLAR DOOR$16.95 WINE CLUB

13.5% Alcohol | Enjoy Now to 2023/2024

Looking to the French style with our Estate Pinot Gris releases, the grapes are harvested later and riper to achieve texture, complexity and palate weight. Revealing a delightful salmon pink blush in the glass, our 2020 offering shows delicate aromas of green apples with hints of white peach and pear, on a ripe and fruit-forward palate of spicy and delightful honeysuckle and more pear characters supported by a clean, crunchy flintiness.
A wine for early and thorough enjoyment alongside a misoglazed salmon with black rice salad or sweet and sticky char sui.

2020 VIOGNIER

$18.95CELLAR DOOR$16.95WINE CLUB
13.5% Alcohol | Enjoy Now to 2023/2024

Vivacious ginger, rose petal and citrus blossom aromas are a siren’s song temptation to a textural palate of stone fruit and honeysuckle
characters.
The other three words that apply here would be ‘Delightful when Young’ with immediate enjoyment the key to unlock all that our 2020 Viognier
offers. Turn the key with a mild Sri Lankan chicken curry or scallops with a Vietnamese herb sauce.

4.5/5

2020 RIESLING

$18.95 CELLAR DOOR$16.95 WINE CLUB

12.5% Alcohol | Enjoy Now to 2028/2030

Another of our 2020 Estate whites noted for its lifted fruit intensity, this latest Riesling release is typically floral and citrusy with a lemon/lime juice sparkling acidity that sears and refreshes across the palate. It is the searing acidity of the 2020 Riesling, similar to its big sister Marsanne, which will hold it in good stead for further development in the cellar over another eight to ten years.
Don’t miss out on the delights of 2020 Riesling now though with pan-fried whiting fillets or lemon chicken piccata.

2015 RIESLING

$20.95 CELLAR DOOR$18.85 WINE CLUBundefined

12.5% Alcohol | Drink Now to 2022

With plantings dating back to 1975, Riesling is second only to our iconic Marsanne as one of the longest serving Estate white varietals, and equal to Marsanne our Estate Riesling releases are also noted as wines that will develop added character with time in the cellar.
We have done the cellaring for you here and time in the bottle for this 2015 vintage Riesling has seen a rich, toasty background complexity added to its citrussy lemon, lime aromas; the palate intensely flavoured and tightly sculpted, with length and balance.
A slightly chilled Tahbilk 2015 Riesling and a selection of hard cheeses – the anticipation is palpable!

2020 GRENACHE MOURVÈDRE ROSÉ

$21.95 CELLAR DOOR$19.75 WINE CLUB

12.0% Alcohol | Enjoy Now to 2022/2024

Our 2020 Rosé release sees the winemaking team blending in a decent splash of Estate Shiraz team alongside Grenache and Mourvèdre, to deliver a bright and appealing aromatic musk, spice and red berry fruits release that sits purposefully on the deliciously dry and savoury side of the fence. Lively acidity on the finish only enhances its enjoyment which will be at its best when young and fresh. A high contender for Tahbilk 2020 release wines.

2019 CABERNET FRANC

$19.95 CELLAR DOOR$17.95 WINE CLUB

TAHBILK CELLAR DOOR EXCLUSIVE

14.0% Alcohol | Enjoy Now to 2025/2027

Wine Club Member, Richard Porter emailed us recently to say he rated our 2018 Cabernet Franc as being ‘right up there’ when compared to the wines from the Loire Valley of France – the spiritual home of the varietal.
In describing the 2018 as a really smooth, medium-bodied red matching a wide variety of dishes, he could so easily have been speaking to the latest
2019 vintage. Its aromatic spice and violet aromas and abundantly flavoured palate of bright mulberry and raspberry fruits a great match to grilled or barbecued meats and Middle Eastern dishes just for starters. Enjoy finding your own matches!

4.5/5

2019 MERLOT

$19.95 CELLAR DOOR$17.95 WINE CLUB

TAHBILK CELLAR DOOR EXCLUSIVE

14.0% Alcohol | Enjoy Now to 2024/2026

Sourced from our 30 year old Estate Merlot plantings, our winemaking team rated reds from the 2019 vintage as having bright fresh fruit, depth of flavour with rich, full palates. No better witnessed than with this release with a deliciously fleshy nose and palate of ripe plum and dark berries with background aromas of herbs and spice and a bright acid line on the finish.
A wine that asks the question “Is the roast mushroom gnocchi ready?” And if not, “what about the roast duck with char-grilled vegetables?”

A complex and multi-faceted wine, lending savoury black olive aromas, alongside notes of nutmeg and cloves, to an opulently flavoured palate of blackberry and dark cherry fruits wrapped in a coat of fine, chewy tannins.
