Ending the weekend on a high note with a taste of this newly released old vines 2017 Cabernet Shiraz from Tahbilk in Central Victoria’s Nagambie Lakes region.

Tahbilk are celebrating their 160th anniversary this year having been established in 1860! They have blocks of Shiraz vines which were planted in 1860, 1933 and each decade through to 1968. Alongside this, they have the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines dating back to 1949!

This wine is made from 51% Cabernet and 49% Shiraz and retails for $46.30 at the cellar door and via the Tahbilk wine club at the moment.

I found it a dark red brick colour in the glass. The nose is so interesting, think earthiness entwined with black fruit, violets and pepper spice. It’s juicy in the mouth with plums, cassis and coffee beans coming through for me. The lingering finish keeps me going back for more 😋

This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
