The Tahbilk Story
The name Tahbilk comes from the language of the Daung-wurrung clans, the first people in the area. They called it tabilk-tabilk which means place of many waterholes. Tahbilk Wines was established in 1860 in the Nagambie lakes sub region of Victoria’s Goulburn Valley. It is home to a unique meso-climate, influenced by inland lakes and lagoons fed from the Goulburn River. Purchased by the Purbrick family in 1925, Tahbilk is home to 5 generations.  Tahbilk is home to 200 hectares of vine, including the traditional Rhone Valley varietals Marsanne, Viognier, Roussanne, Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre. Classic varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Verdelho are also present. Tahbilk's flagship 1860 Vines Shiraz is produced from the estate’s original 1/2 ha of ungrafted, pre-phylloxera Shiraz vines that are amongst the oldest in the world.
Why's this wine for you?
This Shiraz, sourced from a selected parcel of old vines dating back to the 1920s is every bit the classic wine too. Kept back at the winery for deliberate ageing, with the 2011 vintage the last release, we have first exclusive access to this very limited, very special 160th-anniversary edition and we couldn't be more excited. It's rare enough to get an eight-year-old wine cellar release now, let alone one from vines nearing their hundredth birthday. Yet here we are, with a perfectly formed, earthy, powerfully built yet still silky Shiraz ready to drink now or in another twenty years time.
