Winemaker Notes

The nose and palate exhibit intense aromas and flavors of lemon, peach and tropical fruits with a dry mineral raciness. With bottle age these youthful notes will develop into the complex honeyed/honeysuckle, toast and marmalade characters traditionally associated with the variety.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
A simple, sunny beauty, this wine has the scent of the cream at the top of grass fed–cow’s milk. It’s completely unevolved, but if you decant it at lunchtime, by dinner the freshness and spice of the wine is lovely, especially with crab.
WS 89
Wine Spectator
Youthful, vigorous and appealing, offering light pear flavors and a hint of caramel as the finish lingers. Bring on the shellfish.
RP 88
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Marsanne gives notes of lemongrass, white peach, apple slices and grapefruit with a hint of straw. Light-bodied, clean and refreshingly crisp in the mouth, it has a good concentration of lemon and green apple flavors with a medium-long finish.

Tahbilk, , Australia
Tahbilk
Established in 1860 Tahbilk is one of Australia's most beautiful & historic wineries, located in the Nagambie Lakes region of central Victoria (120kms north of Melbourne) one of the nation's premium viticultural areas.

The property comprises some 1,214 hectares of rich river flats with a frontage of 11 kms to the Goulburn River and 8 kms of permanent backwaters & creeks.

The vineyard comprises 168 hectares of vines which include the rare Rhone whites of Marsanne, Viognier & Roussanne, along with classical varieties such as Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc & Verdelho.

Monterey

View all wine

A geographic and climatic anomaly among wine regions, Monterey is a part of the expansive Central Coast AVA and contains five smaller sub-appellations, including the popular Santa Lucia Highlands. Rainfall is extremely low, necessitating the use of irrigation from the Salinas River for successful grape-growing, while harsh Pacific winds and coastal fogs drastically cool and dampen the region in the north.

In the cooler districts of Monterey, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling produce wines with a crowd-pleasing combination of ripe, juicy fruit and crisp acidity. Warmer subzones are home to fleshy, fruit-forward Bordeaux Blends comprised primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Chardonnay

View all wine

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it’s grown and how it’s made. In Burgundy, Chardonnay produces some of the finest white wines in the world, typically tending towards minimal intervention in the winery and at its best resulting in remarkable longevity. This grape is popular throughout the world, but perhaps its second most important home is in California, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia, South America, South Africa, and New Zealand are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay’s flavors tend towards grapefruit, green apple, minerals, and white stone fruit, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of fig, melon, and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice (as well as texture), while malolactic fermentation can impart soft, buttery acidity.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with simple seafood, light chicken dishes, and salads. Richer Chardonnays marry well with cream or oil-based sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. These Old-World style wines have been dubbed the “New California Chardonnays,” and anyone who claims they do not like Chardonnay should give them a try.
