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 Hay Shed Hill property produces low yields of outstanding quality fruit from fully mature vines which were sown in 1973 during the pioneer days of the local wine industry. Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested only when the fruit achieves optimum ripeness. Grapes are de-stemmed into open topped vessels for fermentation on skins, whilst treated to traditional pump overs and cap management. Upon completion, the wine remains on skins for a further ten days maximizing development of ripe, mature tannins. Maturation in French oak barriques for year adds further complexity and structure, enhancing the wine and softening tannins without dominating the fruit.
Dense dark red to black colour. An intense and rich bouquet led by the ripest cassis and berry fruits, rich and opulent but brooding in its youth, over distinctive vineyard characters of dark chocolate and mint. The oak shows background cedar which will recede further as the fruits emerge. An intense fleshy, full mid palate, massive fruit weight, dark cherry and blackcurrant flavours.
