2010 'Eric Stevens Purbrick' Shiraz

2012 'Eric Stevens Purbrick' Shiraz


13.5% Alcohol ~ Screw Cap Closure ~ Drink Now to 2025/2030

“You get a sense that these structure-first Tahbilk reds might indeed live forever. If the ’65 I tasted a few years back is any indication, then that’s probably true. There’s a dense, dusty, old-school charm of baked earth and drying tannins here to reinforce the timelessness too.
Interestingly, this smells and tastes warmer than 13.5%, but that’s as much a product of ripe fruit than anything else. The palate is pretty classic central Vic Shiraz – maybe a bit sweet and sour, but the earthy stream of chocolate dipped fruit is impressive in its concentration and with no shortage of hulking, rough tannins to finish. There’s a roughness here that stops it from being seductive, but heartiness is part of the glory here. Long too. Just don’t open it yet. Would I buy it? Not yet. Fun to have in the cellar though.”

Established in 1860, Tahbilk was purchased by my grandfather Reginald Purbrick in 1925 with his son, and my father, Eric taking on management of the Estate in 1931.
Heading the winemaking for over 40 vintages until handing over to my son Alister in 1978, Eric was one of the early pioneers of varietal labelling in Australia and continued to be a strong influence in the direction of the Estate until his passing in 1991.
Perhaps his greatest contribution to Tahbilk was to create the ‘Special Bin’ Shiraz in 1948 which was to be made, and continues to be made, from the best vat of a particular vintage. In 1952 a ‘Special Bin’ Cabernet Sauvignon was added to the range with both releases becoming known as ‘Reserve’ in 1985.
In recognition of his achievements, these ‘best of a vintage’ wines now carry his name and signature … Eric Stevens Purbrick.
