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»

Pinot Grigio has been one of Preece highest priorities for many years. Regular sampling and close monitoring of flavour development, as the fruit ripens on the vines, is essential to making good wine. A gentle pressing of grapes to avoid any bitterness from the skins and minimal exposure to oxygen throughout the entire process, ensures the retention of natural varietal characters and flavours. Temperature controlled ferments through the action of specialized yeasts enhance the aromaticness of a truly splendid Pinot Grigio.
