Beechworth attracts the most artisanal winemakers, the region's rich mineral soils and parched, undulating terrains, breed wines of vigorous flavour, crystalline textures and boney savoury tannins. The first parcel of Crown Land in the region was acquired by Isaac Phillips in 1857, he christened his estate Golden Ball and built a hotel named Honeymooners Inn, servicing miners on their way up the steep trails to the Beechworth goldfields. The old pub remains but the surrounding land has been turned over to viticulture, planted to vine in the nineteen naughties, it produces a quality of wine that's reserved for the nation's most exclusive winelists.

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. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. 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.

Joe Grilli and David Tait set about crafting this unique Cuvee with Adelaide Hills Shiraz as the predominant base wine, introducing a part of Moda Cabernet Merlot from every vintage since 1991, a hogshead from each year since 1989 also goes in. A sizeable component of the blend consists of a random mixture of very old vintage stocks Australian reds of various wineries and dates, acquired at auction. This imparts a real antique slant to the finished wine. After traditional fermentation in the bottle and resting on sedimentery yeast lees for a year, Joseph is mindfully liqueured to ensure a drier style and to obtain a perfect balance, with a mixture of old Australian ports from the last century.
Deeply coloured, a superfine bead. Currant and blackberry bouquets, clove and some rancio, menthol and earth. This is wine of proportion and folklore, a seamless palate, showing some nicely aged characters, oak just discernible, with a drier than average finish. It is creamy fresh, a serious wine, it can also just as easily be served for a lighter entree or as a very special aperitif.
