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.

Somewhere near the Seaview end of McLaren Vale's Chapel Hill Road, a perfunctory passerine perched her pincers astride a pair of power poles and saw herself alit. Down she went amongst the dry grown branches of an old Grenache vineyard, setting the valuable veterans ablaze. The scorched site eventually came to the attention of a winemaking trio, the Messrs Leske, Tynan & Cooke, Masters of Wine and a venerable vintner, all driven by a consuming passion to make greater Grenache. Thistledown vintage very small amounts of the most extraordinary Grenache. Beautifully detailed and conspicuously elegant, their floral bouquets and graceful finish emulate the aromatic..

Grapes are sourced predominantly from three choice vineyards at Koonunga, Tanunda and Lyndoch, as well as contributions from other fine sites, dotted throughout the premier viticultural precincts of Barossa Valley. The Lehmann team take aim at constructing a full flavoured, seamless wine that's consistent with the enduring Barossa style of Shiraz, robustly flavoured yet gentle on the palate, generous yet finely balanced. Parcels of fruit are crushed into fermenters and treated to a term of cold soak for optimal extraction, the musts are vinified on skins over the course of a fortnight, followed by transfer to a selection of fine French oak hogsheads for a year's maturation.
Crimson with dark garnet hues. An articulate nose of lively black cherries, brambles and chocolatey French oak, garnished by twists of the pepper mill. A deeply layered palate, showing flavours of currants and plum, liquorice and mellow, dark chocolate oak. Drinking beautifully and will continue to evolve handsomely, the perfect accompaniment to meats or braises, recipes calling on chorizo or Grana padano.
