Full Description

We may not have the same longevity with Cabernet Sauvignon from the Estate as we do with Shiraz - difficult to match over 160 years with our original 1860 Shiraz plantings - but with Cabernet Sauvignon vines extending their roots back to 1949, over 70 years is a pretty reasonable history!
Our Cabernet Sauvignon releases are crafted with a commitment to traditional winemaking values. Fermentation takes place in original open vats well over 150 years old, with maturation then in similarly aged large French oak prior to bottling. Smaller French and American oak barrels are also used, with the wine from these blended back during the final filtering and bottling.
Tahbilk Estate Cabernet Sauvignon releases have consistently exhibited considerable richness and character. As young wines bright and fruit-forward aromas and flavours of forest herbs, black olive, eucalypt, blackcurrant and Asian spices and firm, but fine-grained, tannins are at the fore.
Then with age our history with the varietal supports the belief held by many experts that our Cabernet Sauvignon is the best performed of the Tahbilk reds in terms of longevity. The tannins soften, earthy characters substitute for bright fruit but there is a complex and subtle fruit line that extends across the years.
As with all Tahbilk reds – and whites for that matter – food is the friend of our Cabernet Sauvignon releases. In its youth classic matches of beef and lamb particularly with heavier, more complex dishes and sauces are a go to. Both meats would work well as your Tahbilk Cabernet Sauvignon ages, but look to simpler dishes and sauces.
