2013 Tahbilk ‘1860’s Vines’ Shiraz

$320.00

Established in 1860, Goulburn Valley’s Tahbilk Winery has been run by the Purbrick family for the last five generations, since their purchase of the estate in 1925. Recognised as the oldest family-owned winery and vineyard in Victoria, Tahbilk Winery prides itself on maintaining many of the heritage features that have been integral to the property since its inception. 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. Vineyard plantings extend back to Tahbilk’s founding with original pre-phylloxera Shiraz vines still surviving from 1860.

Description

97 Points James Halliday
Lighter colour than usual, but has an excellent clear crimson hue; the winemaking team has resisted the temptation to extract more fruit and tannins, letting the purity of the fruit light up the room, red cherry to the fore. The silky tannins and overall weight are akin to a high quality pinot noir, so it’s no surprise I should love it even if others may not.
