SKU: 10545

From Australia’s first family of wine. One of the oldest wineries in Australia, Tahbilk can trace its roots back to 1860. The Purbrick's, with Alister at the helm, have continued a fine tradition and you will struggle to find anything better in Australia. Red wine Aromas of plums & spice with background peppery hints lead to a Shiraz which has a solidly constructed palate of blackberry, plum and anise fruits with firm but not overly intrusive tannins on the finish. Fermented in 155-year-old open vats, followed by maturation in similarly aged large oak barrels before being bottled. Smaller French and American oak barrels are also used, the result blended tis a beautiful fruit-forward wine. Good growing conditions ensures a well-balanced Shiraz and careful winemaking practices favour fresh fruit, tannin and alcohol. Organic methods.

Alister Purbrick

"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."
