Located in the Nagambie Lakes region of Central Victoria and with a history dating back to 1860, Tahbilk has long been home to some of Australia's finest and best value red wines.

This 2017 Tahbilk Shiraz delivers lifted plum and dark fruits with background savoury, pepper and warm earthy notes; finishing with a backbone of fine, sinewy tannins. A great value red wine from Tahbilk at this sensational price.

"93 Ponts. Dark red with garnet hues. This is fresh and lively with blackcurrant and plum to the fore, spice from oak maturation later, and in complete balance. Tannins are ripe and fruit based too, infusing a nice cherry pip character to the medium-bodied flow of the wine. Drink now or hold for the medium term. 13.8% alc.

Established in 1860 Tahbilk is one of Australia's most beautiful and historic family owned wineries. Located in the Nagambie Lakes region of central Victoria (120kms north of Melbourne), one of the nation's premium viticultural areas, the property comprises some 1,214 hectares of rich river flats with a frontage of 11 kms to the Goulburn River and 8 kms of permanent backwaters and creeks. Purchased by the Purbrick family is 1925, Tahbilk is now home to 5 generations.

The vineyard has some 200 hectares under vine which includes the rare French Rhone Valley whites of Marsanne, Viognier and Roussanne; and the Rhone reds - Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre. Also planted are the traditional varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Verdelho and new age rising stars Tempranillo and Savagnin.

Vineyard plantings extend back to Tahbilk's founding with original pre-phylloxera Shiraz vines still surviving from 1860 - an eponymous wine produced from them since 1979. Tahbilk is further blessed with an abundance of further "old vine" plantings including Shiraz from 1933 (the prime source for Tahbilk's 'Eric Stevens Purbrick' Shiraz releases), Cabernet Sauvignon back to 1949 and Marsanne from 1927 (a "sister" white release to the 1860 Vines Shiraz).
