    From the stellar rated 2021 vintage, a close to equal blend of all three component varietals ... Grenache, Shiraz and  Mourvèdre ... allows each to very ably bring its own character to the mix.
    From its bright and savoury red berry and cherry Grenache qualities; to pepper, spice and plummy Shiraz fruits and Mourvèdre’s fleshy, floral and dried herb notes; delicious enjoyment is at hand.

    About this winei

    Tahbilk can trace its history with the varietals that make up this blend back to 1860 and Estate Shiraz vines that still survive today. In more recent times these elder statesmen plantings have been joined by Grenache and Mourvédre providing the synergistic opportunity to produce an Estate interpretation of the classic French Rhone Valley blending of the three.
    Critical and consumer acclaim continues to grow for this 'new kid on the block' of the Tahbilk Red’s portfolio, along with a glowing Wine Show record.

    VINTAGE 2021
    La Nina had a major influence on the 2020/21 growing season.
    Tahbilk experienced good rainfall post 2020 vintage, and regular rainfall through the year. Notwithstanding the challenges this presented for the vineyard team, who worked diligently to get their sprays on as required, the frequent rain days ensured the vineyards looked healthy and vibrant, with no disease or growth issues.
    The effects of La Nina contributed to a cool to warm, but not hot summer, which meant a slow and steady ripening. By mid-March we’d picked all of the whites with all very promising – Marsanne in particular. We’d also picked some reds by mid-March, mostly for Rosé, however daily light showers that followed had us all nervously waiting for the rain to stop so we could start picking the reds in earnest.
    The rain did stop and, after a lull in ripening, the reds jumped in sugar and the Winery staff were flat out keeping up with the picking.
    For a vintage that looked touch and go quite a few times, 2021 is rated a very good, to potentially stellar vintage.
