Purchased by Reginald Purbrickin 1925, five generations of the Purbrick familyhave been actively involved with the Estate bringinga tradition of pride, hard work and a love of goodwine to their unique heritage of being the oldestfamily owned winery and vineyard in Victoria.Tahbilk has some 28 hectares of Estate CabernetSauvignon, the oldest vines dating back to 1949.Crafted with a commitment to traditional winemaking values, fermentation takes place in originalopen vats over 155 years old, with maturation thenin similarly aged large French oak prior to bottling.Smaller predominantly French oak barrels are alsoused, with the wine from these blended backduring the final filtering and bottling.Tahbilk Cabernet Sauvignon releases have shownconsistently over time considerable richness andcharacter and are considered by many experts tobe the best Estate red for long-term cellarage.

How was it made?
The 2018 growing season was dry and warm and
perfect for growing premium wine grapes.
The winter of 2017 started with a very dry June and
below average rains in July and August.
Spring continued the theme with less than half the
average long term rainfall, and finished with an
unseasonably warm November. The vines loved the
favourable weather, growing large, healthy canopies
and setting good bunch numbers – ideal for
optimal yields.
Vineyard operations focused on trimming to
maintain a balanced canopy, and irrigation to
ensurethe vines had adequate water and nutrients.
Vintage started early February and progressed very
smoothly and although it remained warm, cooler
nights kept a lid on sugar accumulation so that
ripening progression was close to perfect.
2018 promises to be a very good year, the whites
have clear varietal definition and crisp fruit flavours,
and the reds are bright and varietal, with
concentration and depth.
