Dr Frederick Kiel would take the trek by paddle steamer from Melbourne every summer during the late 1800s to spend his summers at Sorrento. His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000.

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.

From a select group of vineyards in Margaret River and the Great Southern which experience wonderful ripening conditions, yielding harvests of Chardonnay with exceptionally fine acidity. Grapes are hand picked and refrigerated overnight. Fruit is manually sorted to eliminate any damaged berries before a whole bunch press of the purest, most elegant, clean free runs into a selection of seasoned and new, French oak barriques, hogsheads and puncheons for fermentation by indigenous vineyard yeasts. A regimen of lees stirring battonage is followed by a course of malolactic and nine months maturation on gross solids. Components are assembled and treated to a minimal fining filtration.
Pale straw in colour with bright green hue at the rim. A defined bouquet of grapefruit and white nectarines with underlying hints of cashew nut and fresh oyster shell. Fermentation to indigenous yeast in French oak barriques provides a creamy texture with flavours of almond meal, honeyed apricots and fresh figs. A crisp acidity combined with some gun flint mineral complexities adds to this contemporary and sophisticated style.
