Tahbilk Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

“Excellent vintage and some lovely wines with fruit weight, purity and varietal trueness. Top wines lovely. A good class of wines with the best showing beautiful varietal fruit and freshness with cassis blackberry and mocha/choc notes. Best examples show beautifully ripe tannins and confident, layered aromatics. Australian Cabernet resurgent!”
Judges Notes – Royal Queensland Wine Show – Class 40

95 Points - Gold Medal Class 40 Royal Queensland Wine Show - equal top wine - enough said!

“Unimpeachable varietal expression from the first whiff of the bouquet to the finish of the medium-bodied palate. A fusion of cassis/blackcurrant, black olive, bay leaf and savoury tannins. As is usual, oak plays a minor role in shaping flavour.”

Established in 1860, Tahbilk is located in the premium central Victorian viticultural region of Nagambie Lakes.

Purchased by Reginald Purbrick in 1925, five generations of the Purbrick family have been actively involved with the Estate bringing a tradition of pride, hard work and a love of good wine to their unique heritage of being the oldest family owned winery and vineyard in Victoria.

Tahbilk has some 28 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon planted on the Estate with the oldest vines dating back to 1949.

Made utilising traditional Tahbilk techniques; fermentation takes place in 150 year old open vats, before maturation in predominantly French oak for 18 months prior to bottling.

Tahbilk Cabernet Sauvignon releases have consistently shown considerable richness and character over time and are considered by many experts to be the best Estate red for long-term cellerage.

Ripe blackcurrant, savoury and minty notes define a varietally expressive wine, finishing with fine-grained tannins that will provide the foundation for added complexity to develop over time. Drink Now to 2026/2028.

Spring rainfalls started well but tapered off with vineyard managers irrigating at budburst and onwards.

The season looked particularly promising until a late severe frost in mid-October hit delicate young growth in many of our low-lying plains vineyards away from the water and native tree cover of the Tahbilk billabongs.

Spring was followed by another very hot, dry summer that resulted in an early start to the harvest with the last of the reds off by the end of March.

Despite the hot, dry summer the whites have delicacy, crispness and definite varietal character.

The reds show bright primary fruit, with good depth and concentration and distinct individual vineyard characters. Winery Notes

Reviews & Accolades

2014 Vintage
“A wine that mops up the oak and shows better for its boundary and structure. The warm year has given the wine some stewed fruit characters, but tannin structure, brisk acidity and a tickle of eucalyptus lends the wine more personality. It has length and is full of flavour, but imbued with a sense of a classy composed wine.”
Mike Bennie – WBM (Wine Business Magazine)

“Tahbilk’s historic pedigree for Nagambie Cabernet finds great expression here. Intense black fruits, light herb and eucalypt hints, a mocha touch, medium body, and balanced dry tannins to support ageing. 92 Points”
Ralph Kyte-Powell – Melbourne Age epicure
