I’ve discussed Tahbilk Marsanne ad nauseum previously. and here we see another string to their bow with the dessert style “cane cut.”
Tahbilk, Cane Cut, Marsanne, Nagambie, 2012
Layers of ice cream, cool honey, baked lemon, white bread and almost clean, clinical white peach character. The palate is rich, full with cane sugar, butterscotch, lemon drops and almost leatherwood honey. Doesn’t finish as unctuous as a botrytis style and still retains a clean, crisp clip thanks to plenty of natural acid. A very good option for a mid range dessert wine based on native Australian ingredients such as finger lime or any sort of eucalyptus blossom. Unique, affordable and elegant.
