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.

Peter Lehmann Stonewell Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Stonewell is the very best of vintage, one of the new world's great Shiraz. A powerful, stately wine, Stonewell is the jewel in the crown of Peter Lehmann's most spectacular efforts, the grapes are drawn from the lowest yielding, old vine blocks in all Barossa Valley. Some planted well over a century ago, produce frugal bunches with parched berries, precious little black gems which are at the heart of Stonewell Shiraz. A wine of great intensity and refined muscularity, which demands time under the Lehmann estate cellars before release.

Usually no more than a dozen small, very mature vineyards are selected each year, the oldest planted in 1885. The berries are small and sparse with crops typically less than 1½ tons an acre. Stonewell is about the pedigree of these sites and the knowledge which has been passed from each generation of growers to the next. An assemblage of parcels from grand old Barossa districts, around a core of fruit from the estate vineyad on Stonewell Road in Marananga. Grapes are macerated on skins for up to a fortnight before a course of barrel ferments, a small batch basket press and clarification, followed by a year's maturation in a selection of French oak hogsheads.
Dense black centre with a deep garnet rim. Bouquet of dark chocolate and black forest fruits with hints of mint. A wine of great dignity, its structure is superbly taut, exhibiting intense depth of fruit reined in by firm tannins. Made in strictly limited quantities, a wine for posterity. Savour with rich game dishes, roast beef and hard cheese.
