Made from Grenache and Mourvedre, this light coloured, very refreshing wine is made in a Provence-inspired mode, with the emphasis on vitality and fresh flavours, making for something crisp and fresh but with a hint of fresh fruit for balance. Utterly delicious rosé.

Expert Reviews

95 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionLight, bright pink. A pleasing tussle between lively red fruits on the bouquet and mid-palate, complexity arriving on the finish with some spicy/savoury notes. Tahbilk is rightly establishing a reputation for this rose style.

How's it taste?

Picked early to retain freshness and delicacy, this is a dry and savoury Rosé of easy appeal. Aromatic musk, spice and rose blossom hints take you to a lively and textural palate of vibrant red berry fruits and savoury nuances. The finish is bursting with a delicious grape acidity that demands, and delivers, much enjoyment. Drink Now to 2021/2023.

How was it made?

Established in 1860, Tahbilk is located in the premium central Victorian viticultural region of Nagambie Lakes. Purchased by Reginald Purbrick in 1925, five generations of the Purbrick family have been actively involved in Tahbilk bringing a tradition of pride, hard work and a love of good wine to their unique heritage of being the oldest family owned winery and vineyard in Victoria. Drawing on Estate plantings of Grenache and Mourvedre the fruit is picked early to retain freshness and delicacy, with the grapes crushed and pressed with as little oxygen contact as possible to preserve the fresh fruit characters. A technique favoured in Provence is then used to increase texture and mouthfeel, by mixing the cold juice (including the pulp and solids) with nitrogen gas briefly each day over four days. The wine is then racked to produce clear juice and fermented with a specific Rose yeast at 10/14 degrees for 2 weeks prior to being filtered and bottled

Who made it?

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.
