  • 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon | Chateau Tahbilk Collectors Edition x 6

We are introducing a rare opportunity to capture of a piece of Tahbilk's history with our extremely limited run of Chateau Tahbilk Collector's Edition Museum Reds.
We've encased our 2015 Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon in labels recreated from our past - perhaps familiar to some of our lifetime supporters - paying homage to the rich and colourful heritage of Chateau Tahbilk.
This limited run offers connoisseurs and collectors alike a chance to savour not just a wine, but a piece of Tahbilk history.
Due to the limited nature of this release we are restricting orders to a maximum of 24 bottles.

About this winei

Enjoy Now to 2027/2029
"The nose is intense and concentrated cassis, blackcurrant and green herbal characters. The cassis and blackcurrant features on the palate where the green herbal character of tomato leaf and mint are dominate. The wine is true to the varietal, lifted on the front of the palate and the mouth puckering tannins follow through on the back palate. Time is still very much on its side … enjoy now or drink over the next 4-6 years."

And The Chateau Tahbilk story ...

Hard to believe that it has been 23 years (June 2000) since 'Chateau Tahbilk' morphed to being just Tahbilk, a change that coincided with our viticultural region being recognised as 'Nagambie Lakes' ... two significant and important changes.

Firstly, casting our minds back you may recall that Australia had agreed with the European Community to phase out the use of Traditional Expressions such as Champagne, Port, Sherry, Claret, Burgundy, Sauternes etc., on Australian wine labels.
At the time we expected that even terms such as Domaine and Chateau would be required to be phased out at some time.

After considerable consultation with our staff and distributors, and much discussion around the family boardroom table, the decision was taken that rather than wait until the last minute and be forced to drop the word Chateau from our label, that with the start of a new millennium, the timing was appropriate to proactively make the change now.

This was no easy decision but was helped by the fact that we would actually be reverting back to our original name 'Tahbilk' that was used when the company was first established back in 1860.

We have also questioned the significance of the French word Chateau to a proudly Australian winery or for that matter to Australians in general – we saw no no need to continue to use terms inherited from other countries and cultures of bygone days.

And as for Nagambie Lakes ... in 1993 the Australian Wine & Brandy Corporation set up a Geographical Indication Committee to identify and redefine viticultural regions throughout Australia, which was opportune as the number of new regions and sub-regions is ever expanding.

It had become increasingly important to determine why our region (to be known now as Nagambie Lakes) produces distinctive premium and super-premium quality red and white table wines, and what it is that sets us apart not only from other Australian wine regions but also other regions around the world.

Two factors were identified which, when combined, gave the Estate a unique position in the world of wine.
Water Mass
We are the only Australian wine region and one of only six worldwide where the meso-climate is dramatically influenced by inland water mass. The effect of the many Lakes and Lagoons (which are linked by the Goulburn River) is a more moderate and cooler than expected climate.
Soil Type
The Nagambie Lakes region has a unique soil type (duplex 2.2) which is only found in one other location in Victoria. The soil is red/sandy loam and is so coloured because of the very high Ferric-oxide content, which has a positive effect on grape quality and adds a certain different regional character to our wines.

And so Nagambie Lakes and Tahbilk were born or reborn!
