The iconic Australian Tahbilk Winery dates back to 1860 and has some of the oldest ungrafted, pre-phylloxera Shiraz vines in the world, as well as boasting the largest single acreage of Marsanne. The name Tahbilk is derived from the aboriginal word 'Tabilk-tabilk' - meaning 'place of many wateringholes' - as the vineyards are located in the unique Nagambie Lakes sub-region of central Victoria.
the vineyards are located in the unique Nagambie Lakes sub-region of central Victoria. Nagambie Lakes is one of only six regions in the world where the meso-climate of the vineyards is significantly influenced by inland water mass. The numerous lakes and lagoons linked by the Goulburn River create a moderate, cooler climate within Victoria. There are 235 hectares under vine.
Tahbilk are one of the most historic and respected producers in the Australian wine industry and a part of the 'First Families' group. They also possess some of the oldest vines in the country.
Their whites are particularly good so one must taste their Marsannes and Viogniers.
