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.

Crafted around a backbone of intensely flavoured, estate grown fruit, supported by hand chosen parcels from exceptional vineyards around Redhill. A combination of mature rootstock and meticulous vineyard management are essential to the ultimate quality of wine. Crop thinning to reduce yields while maximizing quality of harvest is central to the viticultural program. Vines are trellised to the Lyre system, which allows them to find their own natural balance. Bunches of Pinot Noir are completely destemmed into traditional, open top, two tonne fermenters, for a decidedly Burgundian style of vinification, followed by a term of eleven months on lees in a high proportion of new French oak barrels.
Deep purple red colour. Complex floral bouquets of dark cherry, spice notes and subtle savoury new oak characters.Powerful dark cherry and black fruit flavours, a well integrated palate seasoned by spicy, savoury French oak.
