This latest in an impressive line has trademark melon, white peach and citrus fruits with tropical/pineapple touches wrapped in a zesty coat of spice and nutty characters from its time in barrel. The finish is clean, elegant and decidedly refreshing. Drink now to 2021-2023.
90 Points - James Halliday - Wine Companion (2015 Vintage) says
"Matured in French oak (20% new); very well made, its flavours are precisely balanced halfway between stone fruit and citrus, and it has an attractive edgy character to the mouthfeel."
Established in 1860, Tahbilk is located in the premium central Victorian viticultural region of Nagambie Lakes. Purchased by Reginald Purbrick in 1925, five generations of the Purbrick family have been actively involved in Tahbilk bringing a tradition of pride, hard work and a love of good wine to their unique heritage of being the oldest family owned winery and vineyard in Victoria. The first extensive plantings of Chardonnay took place on the Estate in 1979, although there are scattered vines identified as the varietal in a 'fruit salad' vineyard block that dates back to 1927. 1988 was the first commercial vintage to be released and Chardonnay is the only of the Tahbilk whites to spend extended time in oak prior to bottling.
