Old Vines Cabernet-Shiraz - 2015 - AFFW

2015 'Old Vines' Cabernet Shiraz

14.0% Alcohol ~ Screw Cap Closure ~ Enjoy Now to 2030 +

Drawing on the Estate’s extensive older vine plantings, this 2015 vintage blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Shiraz is deliciously expressive of the character borne of its mature vineyards’ sourcing.
Ripe dark berry and cherry fruits, with mint, plum, earth and spice notes, combined with, the judicious use of some 50% new French and American oak (alongside older barrels) brings cedar, herbal and vanillin notes into an overall package of some distinction.


“Reminiscent of the wines I enjoyed in my early 20s. It is nice to still enjoy them! After all, everything moves in circles, and this is viscerally Australian. Blue, red and black fruit allusions, with tar, anise and a whiff of Aussie scrub billowing across the wine’s stern. Cabernet’s stern genetics and its authoritative chalky tannins placate the avalanche of fruit.
This will age very well. Drink to 2035”

The back story of our ‘Old Vines’ Cabernet Shiraz blends starts in the late 1950s under my father Eric’s tutelage, with intermittent vintage releases of what were believed to be the first such solely ‘Estate grown’ styles in the country.
I then resurrected the blend for Tahbilk with four vintages in the 1970s and then, in what was shaping up to become a family tradition, my son Alister followed with two releases in the ‘80s.
We have now made an ongoing commitment to this quintessential Australian blend, drawing on fruit from our wealth of older vineyard plantings.
