2010 Tahbilk Marsanne

Just starting to deepen in colour in its clear glass bottle. Still lots of primary fruit with a touch of honeyed development and no toast as yet. Floral honey and broad citrus with an almost chalky texture. Maybe that floral honey is what others see as the typical honeysuckle? Opened up well but never got fat. Some hotter years can perhaps look a bit brassy but this stays tidy. Bit washy though despite the poise. For the money, it’s a wonder.

12% alcohol. Screwcap. $10.50 in a six pack in 2010.

90 points.
