Winemakers Notes

About - Established in 1860, and purchased by the Purbrick family in 1925, Tahbilk is located in the premium central Victorian viticultural region of Nagambie Lakes.

Region- Nagambie Lakes, Central Victoria, Australia.

Grape Varieties - 45% Grenache, 40% Shiraz and 15% Mourvedre

Vineyards - 100% Estate Grown. Tahbilk has a long association with France's Rhone Valley grape varitials, from Shiraz vines dating back to the Estate's founding, that still survive today, to Marsanne planted in 1927. The elder statesmen vines have been joined by more recent plantings of the Rhone reds - Grenache and Mourvedre and whites - Viognier and Rousanne.

Winemaking - This wine has been made using traditional Tahbilk techniques. Fermentation takes place in 150 year old open vats, before maturation in a mix of new and older American and French oak for 12 months for all the varieties.

Alcohol - 14.00%

Tasting Notes  - “Bright and vibrant with savoury and spice notes on a palate of dark berry and plum fruits alongside hints of mulberry and liquorice, fine tannins and
fresh acidity complete an impressive package. Wonderful current drinking, additional character and complexity will be realised with a further eight to ten years cellaring from vintage.” Alister Purbrick ~ Fourth Generation, CEO and Winemaker

Cellar - 5- 10 years
