TASTING NOTES:


Tahbilk Shiraz is sourced from nearly 30 hectares of vines planted at various times from the 1930s until the early 2000s. The resultant Shiraz releases are noted as being fruit-driven wines of much flavour and substance, proven over the years to develop added character when cellared.  This wine has been made utilising traditional Tahbilk techniques. It was fermented in open oak vats before maturation in French oak for 18 months prior to bottling.  The nose and palate show an intense mixture of blackberries and spice combined with plum and anise overtones whilst the finish is long and flavoursome, balanced with fine grape tannins.
