Some precious old blocks of ancient vine Grenache still remain after a government sponsored program to cull unproductive vineyards during the 1980s. Yielding excruciatingly small harvests of the most characterful fruit, these wizzened old veterans deliver small batch vintages which are evocative of the old world classics from Côtes du Rhône. The enduring Wirra Wirra were established 1894, their eclectic range belies the splendour of small parcels which are separately handled and bottled for exclusive release. The Absconder draws fruit from vines planted a century ago, it merits a breathing and decant, an articulation about the sublime excellence of old vine.. The compelling case for old vines grenache»
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.

Torbreck The Gask Eden Valley Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Eden Valley South Australia
A pure, single vineyard wine, from fruit picked off a single plot of Shiraz, planted 1960 and still managed by the same family. The rocky surrounds of Greg and Cynthia Knight’s highly elevated block of vine were so very reminiscent to winemaker David Powell of stone burial grounds on the hills above Torbreck forest. Nestled into the eastern slope of Mt. McKenzie, this cherished site yields a harvest of parched, intensely flavoured berries, brimming with extraordinary character, lined with the most graceful tannins, endowed with remarkable balance, elegance and poise.

Grapes are all carefully hand picked and passed over the sorting table, bunches are destemmed into two, traditional open cement vats for an extended cold soak maceration and inoculation to wild indigenous or ambient yeasts. Upon completion of ferments, vats are drained and components are treated to a basket press, racked into a selection of seasoned French oak barriques for a course of malolactic and eighteen months maturation, to be bottled unfiltered and unfined.
Dark black red, inky hues. A stirring nose of graphite smoke, crushed rocks and blackberry liqueur. Velvet palate of perfumed cherry, plum and dark currant flavours, persistent and refined. Heroic in style, while retaining the cooler edge and tighter structure for which the greatest growths and finest wines of Eden Valley are famed.
