Hallgarten adds world’s largest Marsanne producer to portfolio
Specialist wine importer, Hallgarten & Novum Wines, has today announced the introduction of Central Victoria’s Tahbilk to its portfolio, exclusively distributing its wines to the UK on- and off-trade.
Owner of the largest and oldest single holding of Marsanne in the world and winner of 2016 James Halliday Winery of the Year, Tahbilk’s range of seven wines expands Hallgarten & Novum Wines’ Australian portfolio to 10 suppliers.
Forming part of its Tahbilk portfolio will be three different Marsanne wines, including the Marsanne '1927 Vines' created from a single vineyard in its ‘Madills 1927 block’, where the vines were planted prior to 1986.
Established in 1860, Tahbilk remains one of only a handful of multi-generational family-owned wineries in Australia that can boast continuous winemaking in its vineyards. The estate comprises 1,214 hectares, including a seven mile frontage to the Goulburn River.
Tahbilk was the first winery to be carboNZero certified in Australia and is one of only 11 certified wine brands in the world to be carbon neutral, obtaining the status in 2013.
Steve Daniel, Head of Buying at Hallgarten & Novum Wines commented: “Tahbilk are the owners of the oldest Marsanne vineyards and arguably the greatest Marsanne producer on the planet, but they are so much more. Tahbilk are one of the founders of the Australian wine industry and they produce a range of diverse premium wines that offer outstanding value.”
Our Australian portfolio now boasts some of the finest producers the country has to offer and puts Hallgarten Wines as the go-to supplier of Australian wines.”
