Tahbilk have managed to survive for over 150 years making wine and must surely rate as one of Australia’s most recognisable brands. Their Chardonnay is for those with patience, held back a year where it chills out on lavish oak and then gets bottled for your delight. It’s a vital mix of melon and peach with a background of citrus and grapefruit all underpinned by the spicy vanillin character that the oak imparts. It’s a dead set winner with a warm chicken salad.
There is a reason our Chardonnay releases lag a vintage behind all other whites and that reason is wood. Oak to be specific – French & American.
Tahbilk Chardonnay spends 12 months sitting quietly in small oak barrels drawing in the cinnamon/spice (French) and vanillin (American) characters that then work with the melon, peach grapefruit & pineapple varietal fruits to deliver a total package.
We believe it’s worth the wait and trust you will agree!
