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. Tahbilk proudly hosts the largest, single holding of Marsanne on the planet. Tahbilk's original rows of Shiraz are commonly cited as one of the great vineyards of the world, regularly sampled at international competitions against illustrious icons such as Romanee Conti and Chateau Lafite, Vega Sicilia and Chateau..

Antonio Carpene was the first winemaker to fashion a quality Veneto Prosecco in the traditional Charmat sparkling process. Founded in 1868, Carpene Malvolti have been crafting the finest effervescent wines from grapes harvested off mature vines planted to the beautiful verdant hillsides of Veneto. The rolling lanscapes at 200 to 300 metres above sea level in the historic DOCG districts of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene are blessed by excellent exposure to sun and the most favourable ripening conditions. A unique winegrowing terroir within a romantic and idyllic pastoral environment, breathtaking vistas and steep slopes covered by vineyards, so special that it has been nominated for World Heritage listing.
Straw yellow colour, greenish tinge and fine mousse. Gentle, fruity bouquet with ripe expressions of apple. Fruit forward palate in an extra dry aromatic style, kept soft and dry by delicate acidity, finishing on a pleasant apple aftertaste. An ultra fine perlage, persistent, conveying a lively and elegant mouthfeel. Excellent as aperitif or as a base for cocktails, matches perfectly with light Mediterranean cuisine.
