Tahbilk ‘One Million Cuttings’, ‘Dalfarras’ and ‘Four Sisters’ Wines

23-Nov-2017

Tahbilk is one of Australia’s historic wineries, the company formed in 1860. In the 20 years following it became one of the country’s most significant producers. Following changing fortunes over the decades, the Purbrick family took ownership in 1925, and restored its reputation as a great wine producing business. Hayley Purbrick represents the fifth generation at the helm. Tahbilk has moved with the times, and makes a very large range of wines that begin with great value offerings to old vine bottlings that come from vines over 150 years old. Environmental concerns are part of the modern philosophies. Tahbilk is one of ‘Australia’s First Family of Wine’. Here, I review a selection of ‘One Million Cuttings’ wines, the name referring to an 1860 advertisement for vine material, and a bottle each from the ‘Four Sisters’ Carbon Zero’ range and ‘Dalfarras’ art and family inspired wines, which are also Carbon Zero certified. www.tahbilk.com.au The wines are imported by Kahurangi Estate. The reds are very sweet and ripe, and all the wines are soft-textured. They will be available early next year. www.kahurangiwine.com
