Tahbilk

The iconic Australian Tahbilk Winery dates back to 1860 and has some of the oldest ungrafted, pre-phylloxera Shiraz vines in the world, as well as boasting the largest single acreage of Marsanne.

The name Tahbilk is derived from the aboriginal word "Tabilk-tabilk" - meaning "place of many wateringholes" - as the vineyards are located in the unique Nagambie Lakes sub-region of central Victoria.

Nagambie Lakes is one of only six regions in the world where the meso-climate of the vineyards is significantly influenced by inland water mass. The numerous lakes and lagoons linked by the Goulburn River create a moderate, cooler climate within Victoria. There are 235 hectares under vine, which include the French Rhône varietals of Marsanne, Viognier, Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre, alongside traditional varieties. The unique red sandy loam soils with a high ferric-oxide content are found in only one other location in Victoria.

Tahbilk has long been associated with the Purbrick family, having been passed down through five generations. Eric Stephens Purbrick, the former winemaker, is credited with having breathed new life into the Estate and revived the quality of the wines after he took over in 1931, and his legacy is celebrated in the ESP reds. Today the Estate is in the extremely capable hands of Eric's grandson, Alister Purbrick.

Carbon Neutrality is of prime importance to Tahbilk. Their journey bagan back in 1990 with revegetation and in 2008 they made a commitment to undergo a carbon emissions audit with an objective to become Carbon Balanced by 2012. They achieved this goal of ‘zero net balance’ of emissions for the 2011/2012 financial year, and the Estate is continuing to focus on reducing emissions to eliminate the need to purchase offsets by achieving a natural balance.

Tahbilk is one of Australia’s leading boutique wine estates and as such is one of the twelve iconic, family-owned wineries that have come together as Australia’s First Families of Wine.
