The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

The Pizzinis established their property as a tobacco farm before being encouraged by Brown Brothers of Milawa to grow wine grapes. The Pizzini property is now planted to vines on the gentle undulating slopes of King Valley and lower down on the second terrace flats leading to King River. The vineyard enjoys a well drained north easterly aspect with red volcanic soils containing a high level of decaying basalt on the slopes and gravely, sandy clay loam soils on the second terrace. The aim at Pizzinni is to strike the perfect balance between healthy, sustainable viticulture and controlled yields, so that the vineyard is better able to produce quality fruit with a concentration of flavour, translating into balanced, mouthfilling wines.
Bright green tinged yellow in the glass. Aromatics of green apples and lime, spices and white petalled flowers jump from the glass. Plenty of mountain fresh fragrance with fresh cut yellow pear fruits, the merest hints of citrus and fresh almond. The palate's crisp, dry and fresh, really bracing yet gentle, with pear and apple flavour sitting bright and crunchy from start to mouth watering finish.
