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.

The neighbouring Grange and Nepean Blocks deliver small but splendid harvests of intense Chardonnay grapes with superb flavour development and bright natural acidity. The team aim to capture all the classic Mornington Peninsula grapefruit, peach and nectarine fruit characters, retaining all the freshness whilst adding complexity and texture throughout the vinification process.

Vines are cane pruned and shoot thinning is performed as early as possible in September to ensure a low number of shoots per vine to create an open canopy. This provides good air circulation and even ripening. Summer pruning on the northern side promotes a relatively early harvest. Hand picked fruit is whole bunch pressed and cold settled before being run to barrel or fermenters for vinification at low temperatures to preserve vital fruit characters. The French oak component is lees stirred over the course of three months to promote oak integration and textural complexity. Parcels are assembled into a style which can best achieve great elegance, character and depth. Alcohol 12.5%
A brilliant medium straw colour. Bouquet of citrus, stonefruit and developed lees richness. Oyster shell complexity with hints of caramel, barrel ferments and vanilla. A wonderful mineral texture on the taut, fruit filled palate, offering great length while exhibiting drying grapefruit characters, peaches and nectarine, smooth complex texture and effortless balance.
