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 illustrious icons such as Romanee Conti and Chateau Lafite, Vega Sicilia and Chateau..

Vega Sicilia is unquestionably a unique wine, one of the great Spanish classics. It's personality is derived from the quality of fruit, rigour at elevage and uncompromising attention to detail throughout vinification. The ageing of Unico Cosecha begins in the January following vintage, initially in large capacity wooden vats for up to two years before a regimen of racking into a progression of new and seasoned, estate coopered oak casks. Over a course of seven to ten years, the wine is transferred from younger to older oak, with a view to achieving harmony and integration. After several years of racking and transfer, Unico Cosecha is finally rested in larger wooden vats and prepared for bottling.
Cherry with ruby robes. A complexity of aromas, fine oak, compote and balsam, rosemary and menthol. Palate entry is subtle and discreet, followed by an opulence of fruit characters. Notes of tobacco and menthol, blackberries and prune integrate with the extravagant oak, supported by dusty, leafy tannins, for a wine of remarkable aromatic complexity and immeasurable palate persistence.
