Full Description

Across Tahbilk’s 160 years there have been many individuals who have made a significant impact on the Estate. None more so than my grandfather Eric Stevens Purbrick.
When my family entered into the history of Tahbilk in 1925 with the purchase of the Estate by great grandfather Reginald Purbrick, it was Eric who convinced his father to continue operating Tahbilk as a winery, Reg’s original plan being to subdivide into dairy farms.
Eric was handed the reigns of control in 1931, a role that then continued for over 45 vintages.
One of the first to place his faith in the future of Australian table wines Eric was at the forefront of varietal labelling in Australia but perhaps his greatest legacy was to create the ‘Special Bin’ range of reds beginning with a Shiraz in 1948.
Selected from the most outstanding casks produced by the Estate from a particular vintage and only released if deemed worthy, these wines became known as ‘Reserve’ in 1985, and then from 2002 they fittingly carry his name and signature 'Eric Stevens Purbrick'.
And so a ‘new’ legacy with its roots firmly planted in the history of the Estate was born.

With this 'Special Occasion' Six Pack release we recognize and pay respect to this legacy ... Eric would undoubtedly approve.

Cheers,
Alister Purbrick | 4th Generation
