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,..

The vines of Les Lys are planted to a unique clay slope on ancient Kimmeridgian subsoils. Grapes are all picked by hand into small 13Kg cases followed by a closer scrutiny over the sorting table. Bunches are treated to a brief 1½ to 2 hours pneumatic pressing for gentle separation of gross solids. Juices are lightly settled for the retention of light solids, half the batches are filled to a selection of well seasoned oak barrels for a completely natural course of ferments and spontaneous malolactic. The balance is vinified in fermenters to retain freshness of fruit character and character of the vineyard. The finished wine is matured for a year or more, partly on fine lees to infuse textural complexity.
