Goulburn Valley, Central Victoria, Australia
This unwooded white wine displays clean and fragrant grassy aromas with lifted tropical notes. Vibrant passionfruit, gooseberry and lemon citrus flavours shine through on the palate balanced by a gentle acid that leads to a lingering finish. What a great sauvignon blanc from Australia!

One of Australia’s First Families of Wine
The man behind Four Sisters and Tahbilk, Alister Purbrick is one of the best-known winemakers in Australia. The Purbricks are founding members of Australia's First Families of Wine, an exclusive group of uniquely historic wineries.
Tahbilk was established in 1860 in the Nagambie Lakes region of central Victoria. The property lies on fertile river flats along the Goulburn River. The name 'Tahbilk', rather appropriately, directly translates to 'place of many waterholes'.
Today, Alister works closely with his daughter Hayley to bring a carbon-neutral strategy to the winemaking and viticulture at Tahbilk. Hayley is the fifth generation of the Purbrick family to make wine at Tahbilk.
"It's sun-drenched and super-ripe, luscious, brazen, and quintessentially Australian and I love it. The sort of thing we need to bolster the illusion that it's summer. Up-front flavours of pineapple and lemon curd are shot through with brisk, lime-fresh acidity."
Established in 1860 Tahbilk is one of Australia's most beautiful and historic family owned wineries. Located in the Nagambie Lakes region of central Victoria (120kms north of Melbourne), one of the nation's premium viticultural areas. The property comprises some 1,214 hectares of rich river flats with a frontage of 11 kms to the Goulburn River and 8 kms of permanent backwaters and creeks. Purchased by the Purbrick family in 1925, Tahbilk is home to 5 generations. undefined The name Tahbilk originates from our location, which the local aboriginal people first referred to as "tabilk-tabilk", meaning "place of many waterholes". Originally spelled Tabilk, the 'h' was added later.
