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.

Vega Sicilia is unquestionably a unique wine, one of the great Spanish classics. It's personality is derived from the quality of fruit and uncompromising attention to detail. At Vega Sicilia, the oak cask is an essential part of the vinification, forging a true consortium with the wine. In the same way that the grape is an achievement of the vineyard itself, it is essential for Vega Sicilia that most of the casks are coopered at the winery. A cepage of varying proportions, according to vintage, Tempranillo and Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Vega Sicilia Valbuena is treated to maturation in a selection of new and seasoned, French and American oak casks and larger format oak vats for up to three years.
Deep, garnet cherry colour. Brilliant nose, alive with bright violet scents and mature red fruit characters. Oak is present without being dominant. A complex, fleshy palate exhibiting exceptional structure. Integrated, layered red cherry and olive, savoury, dusty herbs and generous blackberry fruit flavours, inseparable from the aromatic oak and supportive, textured, velvet tannins. To accompany game sausages, braised mutton and open flame grilled meats.
