SKU: TAHERISHZ17
Purchased by Reginald Purbrick in 1925, his son Eric took over management of Tahbilk in 1931. Heading to winemaking for over 40 vintages before handing over to his grandson Alister in 1978, Eric was one of the early pioneers of varietal labelling in Australia and continued to be a strong influence in the direction of the estate until his passing in 1991. Perhaps his greatest contribution to Tahbilk was to create the "Special Bin" Shiraz in 1948 which was to be made, and continues to be made, from the best vats of a particular vintage. In 1952 a ‘Special Bin’ Cabernet Sauvignon was added to the range with both releases becoming known as ‘Reserve’ in 1985. In recognition of his achievements, these "best of a vintage’ wines now carry his name and signature … Eric Stevens Purbrick.

”Crushed and destemmed. Fermented with cultured yeast, matured 18 months in French oak (30-40% new). Your classic Central Victorian shiraz in a nutshell, with a down-to-earth (literally) appeal of baked earth, Aussie bush scents mingling with ripe blackberries and woody oak spice. The palate is full and generous, with a lingering, smoky savouriness. Traditional, yes, in keeping with its namesake, who knew a thing or two and established the Tahbilk red wine style. Tasted months before release and still coming together, but with an assured confidence. Bronze medal at Perth Royal Wine Show '20.”
