    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.

    Just a few kilometres north of Lowburn, near the windswept shores of frigid Lake Dunstan, atop the parched and laborious terroirs of Central Otago, a high country merino stud between the Amisfield and Parkburn streams was sown to vineyards two decades ago. Grazing country makes magnificent viticulture, the austere alluvial and glacial schist soils now yield the quality of Pinot Noir which has defined Central Otago as the world's most demonstrable marque in full bodied, intensely complex, yet beguilingly seamless Pinot Noir.

    Walking along the rows of vine and tasting random grapes, Chester Osborn classifies each vineyard and determines the ideal picking time. Individual batches are crushed through the Demoisy open mouthed, rubber toothed crusher into a collection of five tonnes headed down open fermenters. A traditional course of foot treading is followed by good old fashioned basket pressing into a mixture of seasoned and new, French and American oak barriques for completion of ferments and natural malolactic. Components are matured twenty months on gross lees solids, followed by racking and the final assemblage, to be bottled without fining or filtration.
    Deep scarlet colour. Packed with berry perfumes and spice notes over a darker background of black olive and freshly turned earth. Purity of fruit is the real star, exhibiting great poise, luscious plum and raspberry flavours, blueberries and black to the core, before secondary notes of nutmeg and clove.
