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.

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.

Trentham Estate Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Riverina New South Wales
Trentham have retained their identity as a unique, artisanal winemaking estate, amongst the boundless expanse of commercial Riverina vineyards.

Case of 12
$215.00
Trentham has three separate vineyards of Sauvignon Blanc, an older site planted in the early 1990s and two younger blocks of select clonal stock. The older site is low yielding, producing wines with more body. The younger vineyards produce wines with more varietal lift and definition. Vintage is determined by ripeness, healthy acids and the desired levels of baume. Immediately following harvest, grapes are destemmed and crushed. The musts are chilled and moved through the press for a term of cold settling, clarified juices are cold fermented with a select yeast over a course of three weeks. Upon completion, batches are treated to a relaxed settle before racking and assemblage into the final wine.
Light straw hues. Lifted aromas, dry flintiness and light herbaceous hints, tropicals, passionfruit and lychee. Great depth of palate, gooseberries and lychee, guavas and lime, within a crisp, crystal mouthfeel. Best enjoyed in its youth, to fully appreciate the evocative, fresh fruit flavours, serve chilled alongside seafood and white meat salads. Turkey makes the perfect match.
