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..

Laphroaig 25 Years Islay Malt 700ml

Scotch Whisky
For nearly two centuries, a small team of dedicated islanders have worked to create the most distinctive fine Whisky in the world. An assemblage of Islay Malts which have been matured in a combination of American bourbon barrels and oloroso sherry casks. It's a marriage that's made in heaven, as the sherried, oaky flavours of the second fill European oloroso components create harmony with the creamy, smooth, sweet flavours of bourbon barrel. An idyllic fusion, made even smoother after maturing for a quarter of a century.
Bright red gold. A rich, sweet scent, sherry sweetness is quickly followed but the enduring Islay peat tang. After the opening burst of flavour comes a smooth fruit ripeness that complements the tang of salt in the background. The burst of peat that fills the mouth is quickly restrained by a sherry sweetness that slowly develops into spicy apple fruitiness. Very long and warming, lingering on the distinct tang of Islay.
