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..

The Heemskerk Vineyard was established in 1975 at the very heart of Pipers Brook, the finest sparkling wine terroir in Australia and the birthplace of Jansz. In 1986, Heemskerk was joined by the esteemed Louis Roederer of Champagne in their pursuit of the definitive Australian sparkling wine. The pick of Heemskerk parcels, are individually crafted and assembled into the nation's finest effervescent Chardonnay. Bunches are individually hand sorted and destemmed, treated to the full compliment of Champenoise Methode Traditionelle, vinified on gross sediments and sent to the Jansz cellars for an extended term of maturation in own bottle on yeast lees before the ultimate disgorgement, doseage and reseal.
Pale golden hues, a fine bead and persistent mousse. Intense and intriguing aromas of oyster shell, preserved lemon and truffle, notes of toasted brioche. The palate unravels layers of citrus stonefruits, crystallised lemon and lemon curd overlaid with roast almond nougat, an exquisite balance between the fine creamy textures and long drive of chalky, mineral acidity. A wine of luxury and sophistication.
