One of Tahbilk’s flagship reds and released with a touch of bottle age. Tahbilk this year are celebrating their 160th anniversary in 2020 and I can guarantee it won’t be a year they’ll forget!
Tahbilk, Eric Stevens Purbrick, Shiraz, Nagambie, 2015
Deep garnet hue. Evoactive nose: such regional recall from the first whiff: dusty, eucalypt and mint driven. Floury baked blueberry muffin tart/sweet notes, steeping plums with Snack® chocolate and dusted with cracked pepper. There’s a good dose of cedary French oak too, but that becomes a little more harmonious with some oxygen. On the palate: the tannins define the wine and speak of the region: dusty and tight, while providing a bedrock for many years cellaring. The fruit remains bright and effortless. Make no mistake, this is not a tannic chewy monster, it retains elegance and is wonderfully charming.
