Establishing his own label, he embarked upon a secret project to acquire parcels of prodigal Barossa vine. With a backbone of fruit grown to some of the oldest sites in Australia, much of Rockbare's fruit comes off vines a century or more of age. The intense power and complexity of Rockbare's..

Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial.. Bounty of bendigo goldfields»
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.

Although the vineyard team see the devil in every weed, they encourage the humble dandelion to grow amongst vines as they supress winter weeds and provide mulch in summer. Their wishing clocks chime in spring to make the dream of ultra fine Riesling come true. Whole bunches are hand picked and destemmed into small batches without crushing grapes to comfortably fill the wine press. Free run juices are vinified in small fermenters at temperatures between 11°C and 14°C, to bone dry, preserving a high level of natural acidity. Wonderland is bottled directly without fining or filtration to capture the essence of the vineyard, a looking glass if you will.
Pristine pale straw hue. Lights on in this Wonderland, jasmine, mandarin leaf and even lychee juice bursting fruit freshness, invigorating, intense smells of lime skin, citrus blossom, green apple, ripe guavas and cinnamon spice. An extraordinary precise and clean fruit spectrum of crunch lime and other citrus fruit flavours, stonefruit, apricot and mandarin, morphing into rich lemon meringue tart flavours, over steely minerality, balanced by racy, slate acidity.
