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.. Phyloxera, ancient cellars & seriously old vines»
Originally formulated by John Charles Brown OBE in 1954 and crafted to this very day in the exact same manner, Brown Brothers flagship icon endures as one of the nation's most distinguished single vineyard wines. Mondeuse plantings were brought to Australia in the early 1900s by the legendary Francois de Castella of St Hubert fame, they have remained the most precious parcel of Brown Brothers heirloom vines since the 1920s. At Milawa, Mondeuse translates into an inky, deeply tannic wine, it forms synergies with the sweet fruit plumpness of Shiraz and statuesque elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon to coalesce into a rich, opulent style of eloquence and structure...

There's also nothing generic about Moppity's Lock & Key efforts, they reflect their unique geographic origins, the ultimate expression of soil and microclime. Every effort is made in the vineyard to achieve quality fruit. Minimal irrigation, bunch thinning and careful pruning ensure low yields of concentrated grapes, providing wines of compelling regional and varietal distinction. Parcels of Tumbarumba Chardonnay are isolated on the basis of pure varietal expression and intensity of flavour. Exclusively free run juices are treated to lees battonage and partially barrel fermented in a selection of fine French oak barriques.
Brilliant, clean, pale yellow colour. Bright and lifted with citrus, fig and nutty complexity. Best described as a new world Chablis, the palate is long and lean with citrus, white peach and excellent minerality before a spicy, nutty finish. Although partially fermented in French hogsheads, the oak plays a subtle background role, allowing the fruit to do the talking.
