RATED 4.5 STARS! CARBON ZERO WINERY
At the time of Tahbilk’s very early beginnings in 1860, one of Tahbilk’s founding fathers, John Pinney Bear placed an advertisement in leading newspapers across Australia asking for ‘One million strong vine cuttings’.
His advertisement was reasonably successful with Tahbilk receiving around 600,000 cuttings and by the end of 1860, 26 hectares of vines were planted. This historic advert was the inspiration for this range of wines which have been crafted from grapes sourced from Central Victorian vineyards owned by Tahbilk.
Made from 100% Merlot grapes, this wine has aromas of rich blueberry and dark chocolate with a hint of spice. The soft and supple palate has smooth fruit flavours of blackberries and ripe plums, rounded with fine grained tannins. Perfect with Grilled chops - veal, pork or lamb - especially with herbs such as thyme, rosemary and oregano. 14.3% abv.
Awarded 4.5 Stars by Sam Kim (Wine Orbit), Tahbilk is also rated a 5 Star Winery but Aussie wine writer & legend, James Halliday! This wine should not be missed at this cracking price!
