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.. Phyloxera, ancient cellars & seriously old vines»

He retains access to the finest fruit in McLaren Vale and is the man behind many of our nation's most memorable vintages. Undercover is a moniker that Geoff has assigned to a collation of exceptional parcels, albeit bottled behind an abstruse label to secrete the provenance of a spectacular Shiraz.

Vega Sicilia own and operate 250 hectares of the most splendid winegrowing terroir on the Ribero Del Duero. The exacting standards involved in making Unico Cosecha begins with the husbanding of vines, which are controlled down to each detail. Vega Sicilia have established limits to the production of the estate's vines, which are not to surpass twenty two hectolitres per hectare. All are dry grown and hand pruned, yielding less than two kilos each. Grapes are never picked unless they have achieved high levels of natural sugar concentration. The finished Unicco Cosecha is matured up to ten years in a combination of seasoned and new, estate coopered oak casks and large capacity wooden vats.
Intense cherry red colour, brilliant. Complex and elegant nose, the fruit is integrated with subtle, fine oak characters. Exceptional balance on the palate, exhibiting all the elegance of a statuesque Tempranillo wine, muscular, stately and solidly structured yet elegant and refined, retaining all the liveliness of youth. Complex, flavourful and persistent.
