Tahbilk 2011 Coueslant Sparkling Marsanne 750ml
We have been recognising Francois Coueslant, Tahbilk’s innovative winemaker and manager from 1877 to 1886, and his impact on the Estate’s early ‘Golden Age’ for a number of vintages now across our prestige sparkling range. This latest limited release sparkling Marsanne is a more than worthy tribute and one we believe Francois would happily have his name associated with.
Offering penetrating lemon citrus fruits, with honeysuckle and tropical characters; alongside some bready notes from time on yeast lees, the finished package is underscored by a delightful minerality true to its Estate varietal sourcing. Thoroughly enjoyable across this year’s festive season and beyond with yum cha or freshly shucked oysters or cellar for another 6 to 8 years for added complexity to develop.
