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..

Grenache Carignan Shiraz Mourvedre Cabernet Sauvignon Priorat Spain
Julius Caesar was born a Spaniard, he probably enjoyed the wines of Priorat at a time when ancient Romans built the very terraces which now yield Font de la Figuera. This majestic viticultural paradise was devastated by phylloxera and abondoned by agricuturalists in the nineteenth century. Rediscovered by fine wine enthusiasts and re established to productive vineyards in the 1980s, it delivers vintages of the most exquisite Grenache blends in the world. Layered with licorice and the seasoning of Mediterranean spice, a penetrating wine, seamless, stately and refined.
