West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture.

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.

Pinot Gris has found the perfect idyll within the cool climes and elevated aspects of Valley Eden. The long slow ripening produces an exceptionally well balanced style of Pinot Gris with heightened acidity and brisk natural fruit characters. An aromatic, textural white wine that's so highly engaging, while serving as a contemporary Australian take on the established French style. H&V's mouthfilling and complex, layered palate makes it a cinch with food and a fine match to all cosmopolitan faire.

Parcels of Pinot Gris grown to a splendid site, high up the Eden Valley, atop bony, rocky soils, are picked a little later in the season to make a more textural style of wine. Following harvest, grapes are crushed and the juices drained immediately away to ensure a finished wine of delicacy and softness. A small portion is inoculated in French oak hogsheads to create a Pinot Gris of characteristic barrel ferment richness, the balance is treated to vinification in chilled fermenters to retain the urgency of Eden Valley fruit. After a few weeks on sedimentery yeast lees, components are assembled, stabilized and bottled early to preserve freshness. Alcohol 13.0%
