Tahbilk gets a little fizzy and a wee bit sticky

Tahbilk is Victoria's oldest family-owned wine producer with a history that dates back to 1860. 

And it would be fair to say it has a reputation for being quite conservative.

But Tahbilk has joined the growing raze for spritzes and fruit-driven summer cocktails by funking up traditional favourite the Mimosa.

Enter The ‘Sticky Spritz’, a new cocktail combining Tahbilk’s 2018 Cane Cut Marsanne and their NV Coueslant Chardonnay Pinot sparkling wine to produce a signature summer treat that has proved hugely popular at cellar door.

The cocktails was created almost by accident by cellar door manager Holly Cusworth. 

Playing around with wines and flavours, Holly was inspired to build on the spritz trend and create one of her own. 

“The combination of sweet and fruity hi flavours in this spritz is delicious but not cloying," she says. 

"The acid in the sparkling cuts through, creating a not-too-sweet summer sensation. It’s my new ‘go to’ drink, but really it's so special as we’ve never really served or sold a drink like this before, combining two wines from our classic portfolio.”

Take the two wines and add a sprig of thyme, a squeeze of orange and some soda water to your glass.

Here's a recipe, but you can tweak it to suit your own tastes.

● Half fill a wine glass with plenty of ice and add the following:

● Tahbilk Cane Cut Marsanne

● Tahbilk NV Coueslant Chardonnay Pinot sparkling

● Top with soda water

● Add a squeeze of fresh orange juice and stir

● Garnish with a slice of orange and a sprig of thyme

For more see to order. The 2018 Cane Cut Marsanne is $20.95 and the NV Coueslant Chardonnay Pinot sparkling is $22.95.
