Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars.

The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

The barely irrigated, old Barossa vineyards, blessed by exceptional soils and idyllic aspects, yield harvests of superlative Shiraz which reflect the character of each unique mesoclime. The choicest parcels are treated to a traditional open fermentation and basket press. Paul Lindner practices old world techniques with obsolete equipment to unlock and exploit full potential of flavours held in the grapes, triumphing in a powerful fruit driven wine that exhibits subtle complexity and discernible vineyard character. A minimal amount of handling and filtration preserves intense flavours, followed by transfer into a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak hogsheads for two years maturation.
Very deep crimson with purple hues. Lifted aromas of raspberry and satsuma plum are complimented by fine milk chocolate, vanilla and hints of butter, smoked and roasted nuances. Sweet primary fruits transfer to the palate which is full and well balanced with briary spice and fine firm oak tannins. The finish is very long, youthful and fruit driven.
