Cracka Value Rating

Cracka Review

In 1860 John Pinney Bear, one of Tahbilk's founders placed a newspaper advert in the Geelong Advertiser asking for One Million strong vine cuttings. 155 years later and Tahbilk is now one of the most prestigious wine houses in Australia. This Chardonnay is packed with varietal flavours and wisps of spicy oak. Balanced and elegant and assured to win over the even the most vehement member of the ABC (Anything But Chardonnay) Club.

Winemaker's Notes

At the time of Tahbilk's very early beginnings in 1860, one of Tahbilk's founding fathers, John Pinney Bear, placed an advertisement in leading newspapers across Australia asking for 'One Million strong vine cuttings'. His advertisement was reasonably successful with Tahbilk receiving around 600,00 cuttings and by the end of 1860, 26 hectares of vines planted - including Shiraz.

Lovely, varietal honeydew melon, peach fruit characters, some pineapple/tropical fruit undercurrents all working in symmetry with toasty/spicy French and American oak, none dominating; stylish, elegant and "balanced".

Alcohol: 14.5%

Sam Kim (2015 Vintage) says
Textural, mouth-coating and silky-smooth, this stylish Chardonnay offers attractive flavours of ripe stone fruit, baked apple, oatmeal and toasted hazelnut, together with a hint of creamy note. The palate delivers excellent weight and fine texture, elegantly framed by beautifully integrated acidity, finishing long and expansive. A nicely rounded Chardonnay offering appealing fruit flavours with subtle creamy, nutty complexity.
