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.

The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972.

Sevenhill Cellars are nestled among the vineyards close to St Aloysius Church. Herr Weikert Block's red brown loam soils and cool, sheltered aspect are key elements in achieving the balanced growth and fine Riesling attributes of St Francis Xavier. The winemaking focus is on preservation of pristine fruit characters that develop during ripening of the berries. Grapes are picked during the coolest part of day, gently pressed and fermented at a very low temperature. Great care is taken to settle and bottle the wine quickly, ensuring the vineyard's signature flavours are captured. It's the aim each year to release St Francis Xavier after twelve months in bottle, just as the glorious fruit characters begin to emerge.
Citrus green hues. Concentrated elegant perfume indicates the finesse of the St Aloysius style. In the mouth, the wine combines the fresh zest of citrus flavours with the toasty, nutty character that comes from bottle age. Mouthfuls of citrus fruit combine with enticing minerality, assertively astringent and a touch of lime, talcy yet pleasingly drying.
