Goulburn Valley, Central Victoria, Australia
A great Australian red wine, deep purple in colour. The fragrant nose displays aromas of subtle dark berry fruit and a hint of spice and pepper. The palate is elegant and finely balanced showing dense berry fruit, overtones of spice and finishing with some fine powdery tannins.
The grapes for this Shiraz were picked and crushed in the cool of the night, ensuring the retention of its fresh fruit flavours. The wine is then aged in a combination of French and American oak along with some portions kept in stainless steel tanks to ensure the dominance of the fruit — all the rich, ripe varietal character we expect from Australian Shiraz, but lively and well-balanced.

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.
"This sister of a recent white ‘Bottle of the Week’ has the same balance and elegance. Ample, dark fruit flavours are lifted by a refreshing tang and a pepper-dusted finish. It’ll suit all sorts of foods."
"Perfumed with floral and menthol notes. Ripe red and black-cherry fruits hide the alcohol. Partner with a leg of lamb marinated in yogurt, mint and garlic then slow roasted."
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.
