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. Tahbilk proudly hosts the largest, single holding of Marsanne on the planet. Tahbilk's original rows of Shiraz are commonly cited as one of the great vineyards of the world, regularly sampled at international competitions against..

Sandro Mosele is one of Victoria's most accomplished vignerons, his celebrated editions of Kooyong and Port Phillip estates are amongst the most cherished renderings of Burgundy styled Pinot Noir in the nation. Mosele has applied his art to a precious parcel of fruit, picked off a single, modest block of vine, grown to the fully fertile soils of a lamb and beef stud, on the brisk, maritime blown coastals of Gippsland South. This is not Pinot for profit, Walkerville represents an aesthetic appreciation of fruit from the farmer, invigorated by the blessings of providence and consecrations of local livestock. A cornucopia of comely characters, forcemeats and fennel, pectins and pith, Walkerville make Pinot Noir as it should be, bucolic, pastoral, articulate of the land whence it came. Partisans and purists of bespoke presentations in Pinot, are quietly advised to pool their.. The grazier's garden of gippsland»

St Huberts Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Yarra Valley Victoria
St Huberts won much fame in Europe during the latter part of the 1800s, for the extraordinary quality of their new world wine. In the twentieth century, this noble estate lead the Yarra Valley's second golden age. The present day property boasts old vines planted in 1966 which generally yield low crops of intense fruit, brimming with rich flavours. A mere twenty one hectares of vine are crafted into one of Victoria's most enduring Cabernets. A tribute to the quality is the assertion by local growers that these vines produce the best Cabernet Sauvignon in Yarra Valley.

The precious St Hubert Cabernet blocks were reclaimed after the property reverted to grazing and dairy in the 1920s. The soil is relatively deficient in some nutrients, thus the vines are not overly vigorous. The scarce winter rainfall is collected in a dam at the vineyard and used for irrigation as required in summer using a trickle irrigation system. Fruit is primarily sourced from St Huberts Block, with the inclusion of parcels from Yarra Valley flats. Individual batches are vinified in open vats and closed static fermenters, each in turn is pressed off and racked into a high proportion of new French oak barriques for fifteen months maturation, developing superb depth and wonderful complexity.
Dark red, crimson hues. A brooding example of Yarra Valley Cabernet, intense dark berry fruit notes of blueberry and cassis, violets intertwine with reserved, integrated oak and just a hint of mocha. The palate is medium to full bodied, showing lovely roundness and depth. Tannins from the fruit and oak are ripe and powdery, providing excellent structure and length. A stately wine to be enjoyed alongside aged sirloin and jus.
