2013 Shiraz, Tahbilk, Victoria, Australia
“this winery still sources limited high-end shiraz from 1860s plantings. But this is far more accessible and conveys a light to medium-weight house style, lifted from the start with an ethereal fragrance before planting a kiss of spiced plums on the lips, seasoned by a dash of white pepper and finishing with fine, soft and long tannins.” Tony Love.
Established in 1860 Tahbilk is one of Australia's most beautiful & historic 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 & creeks. Now in the hands of the fifth generation of the Purbrick family, the winery owns some of the oldest ungrafted, pre-phylloxera Shiraz vines in the world.
