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.

Established just eleven years after the founding of South Australia, the ancient vines in the Hundred Of Moorooroo were planted circa 1836 by the Jacob brothers, after accompanying Colonel William Light on the Seven Special Surveys expedition to populate Adelaide's north. Moorooroo endures as the nation's cardinal parcel of vine, the mother rootstock for many of the Barossa's most distinguished sites. For over a century, these sacred vines contributed fruit to the Orlando company, where they formed the backbone of countless spectacular historical vintages. Decimated by the government sponsored vine pull schemes of the 1980s, only four rows of these priceless vines were saved by master Ed Schild from.. The fruit of vines established 1836»
Heirloom Vineyards were born of love. A romance between an esteemed wine judge and his protege, consumated by a shared passion to preserve the integrity of venerable old vineyards. A deference for the sanctity of the soil and adherence to the timeless procedures of organic viticulture, were an integral part of the vision. Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages. The fostered old vines have now been resurrected, yielding treasured harvests of the most sublime new world wine. Recipients of prestigious Platinum Award.. Serenading sleeping vineyards to life»

The structure, style and superb quality of Warre's Ports are defined by its vineyards. The mainstay of Warre's Ports is provided by three great estates, Quinta da Cavadinha, Quinta do Retiro Antigo and Quinta da Telhada. The latter was acquired by Warre's in 2006 and this riverside property now makes a significant contribution. Further to these, Warre's are able to draw on the production of a collection of other sites with long associations. Quinta do Retiro Antigo is one of the finest vineyards in Rio Torto. A historical landmark with spectacular 18th century stone terraces, most of which grow just one row. These ancient vines produce superb grapes that perfectly complement fruit from Cavadinha.
Inky and concentrated, an opaque colour given by the famous old vines of Retiro Antigo. This concentration combines perfectly with the freshness imparted by wines from the higher lying Cavadinha vineyards to produce lovely fresh flavours of blackberry fruit. A wine of enormous elegance, combining vibrant lifted fruit with power and long lasting flavours. Vintage 2007 is much enhanced by the exuberance of Telhada Touriga Franca grapes.
