It's good to know that with more than 150 years of winemaking experience, Tahbilk Wines specialises in the production of premium, fruit flavoured wines. The company owns a total of 200ha of vineyards planted with some of the oldest vines dating back to 1860. Fourth generation winemaker Alister Purbrick started his career at Mildara Wines, after completing his training at Roseworthy. He presently works as the CEO of the company.
The grapes used to craft this dazzling Cabernet Sauvignon from Tahbilk Wines were fermented in open vats and then matured in French oak. The resulting wine displays a dark blood red colour. The attractive bouquet offers scintillating aromas of cassis blackberry, mocha and choc which are replicated on the luscious palate. Ripe tannins fuse with layered aromatics and juicy flavours to culminate in a refreshing finale. Drink this fruit driven Cab Sauv immediately upon release or cellared for a decade to allow it to develop gracefully. Suggested food pairings include spiced lamb shoulder, zucchini gratin with tomato confit, and coffee ice cream.
