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.

The highly elevated Le Gallais property at Wiltingen is notable for being one of the few Mosel vineyards that looks down onto the Saar rather than into one of her tributaries. The sheltered bend, between Kanzem and Wiltingen, is considered the best microclimate in the district. Weingut Egon Müller acquired half of the eminent estate in 1954, leasing the balance of the property from Madame Rochon. Braune Kupp Kabinett is fermented mostly through the action of wild yeasts in old, thousand litres oak foudres. The wines are raised in ancient cellars which were built by mediaeval monks. The deep, very cold and damp environments make the perfect environment in which to gently age the wines, built for the long haul.
Light golden straw. Exotic nose of sweetly scented citrus, stonefruits and banana with florals and fragrant Bäckerei notes. Medium bodied palate exhibiting fine minerality and chalky acids in support of the rich, complex Riesling fruit characters, lime, honeysuckle and slate. Drinks beautifully on release and evolves magnificently.
