Full Description

With original vines that go back to our founding in 1860, it would be difficult not to cast Shiraz in the lead role for any vinous play written about Tahbilk (the many devotees of our Marsanne may share a different view!).
Notwithstanding the eponymous ‘1860 Vines’ Shiraz and best of a vintage ‘Eric Stevens Purbrick’ Shiraz – nee ‘Special Bin’ and ‘Reserve’- Tahbilk Estate Shiraz releases have been a benchmark for the quality and character of reds from our Nagambie Lakes vineyards and have been roundly applauded and commended across many vintages …  and there have been just one or two!

Our Estate Shiraz is crafted with a commitment to traditional winemaking values. Fermentation takes place in original open vats well over 150 years old, with maturation then in similarly aged large French oak prior to bottling. Smaller French and American oak barrels are also used, with the wine from these blended back during the final filtering and bottling.

The result is fruit-driven wines of much flavour and substance generally showing lifted violets, spice, and clove aromas, the palate bold and bright with wild berry and plum fruits finishing with supple and savoury tannins. Further cellaring has been proven over the years to develop added character and complexity with earthy, leather and cedary/ cigar box qualities coming to the fore, the tannins softening and comfortably sitting in the background.

A most definite food-friendly wine, when young the bold and fruit forward characters of Tahbilk Shiraz would be well suited to robust meat based stews, grilled or roast beef and strong hard cheeses especially cheddar. With some age look to game dishes of roast duck, venison or kangaroo and the leanness and delicate flavours of veal.
