Established in 1860 Tahbilk is one of Australia’s most beautiful & historic wineries, located in the Nagambie Lakes region of Central Victoria and one of the nation’s premium viticultural areas. The vineyard comprises 200 hectares of vines including whites of Marsanne, Viognier and Roussanne; the reds – Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre as well as the traditional varieties. Tahbilk is further blessed with an abundance of “old vine” plantings including Shiraz from 1860, Cabernet Sauvignon back to 1949 and Marsanne from 1927. Tahbilk is the first Australian winery to be carboNZero certified at both an organisation and product level and one of only eight wineries in the world.

Crushed and destemmed fruit, fermented with cultured yeast. Matured 18 months in French oak (30–40% new). Eric Stevens Purbrick, the grandfather of CEO, Alister Purbrick, created the traditions that hold the producer in good stead in the 21st Century. These culminate beautifully, artfully, in the '17 Eric Stevens Purbrick Cabernet. This is definitely about a taste of tradition, of measured oak, of ripe fruit allowed to fully express, and a sense of place in the earthy, dusty savouriness. This is no power cabernet. Aromas of the Aussie bush, sage, baked earth, light herbals and violets. A warm, inviting palate of dark chocolate and spice, finishing with firm tannins. Elegant and enticing now, but save some for later. Drink to: 2034; Price: $72.00; Date Tasted: March 2021; Alcohol: 14.0%; Rating: 95 Points; Jeni Port; James Halliday Wine Companion
