2009 Tahbilk Chardonnay CrackaWines James Halliday 89
  • 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!

    Butterscotch and toffee aroma leads to the same on the palate. A masterclass on the influence of malolactic on flavour and texture.

    Rob Geddes MW (2006 Vintage) says:

    Dry savoury style that holds on well with the oldest wine still fresh, poised and balanced in their leaner framed style and getting more textural each year.

    Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says:

    Lacklustre nutty, peachy aromas are backed by rather clunky cardboard-like oak that dulls its freshness. It's forward and simple but dries out towards a flat finish of papery oak influence.

    Nice peachy stone fruit flavours; good length and balance; holding up well.

    Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says:

    Elegant fleshy chardonnay whose delicate, nutty aromas of stonefruit bubblegum/vanilla oak reveal floral and spicy undertones Sweet and juicy. its long, restrained palate might lack complexity but delivers appealing tropical and peach-like fruit before finishing long and soft with enduring flavours, lemony acids and restrained oak.

    James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says:

    Medium to full yellow-green; a big fruit-driven wine with ripe buttery/peachy fruit together with a few spicy oak notes on the bouquet. There is lots of mid to back palate flavour, again with pleasantly subtle oak, and finishes with good acidity.
