Tahbiik Reserve Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson (2002 Vintage) says
Tahbilk has long been a master of the food-friendly, savoury style of regional shiraz. Its value to Australian wine is greater than ever. 2002 RELEASE There's a trace of regional eucalypt here but it's otherwise a gorgeously savoury, complex, interesting wine. It deserves to be cellared. A frame of cedary oak encloses plummy, spicy, earthy flavour, the concentration of it significant but not in any way over done. More length than power. DRINK 2011-2025.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Here is a classic Tahbilk wine, that shows what the house style is all about. It's fragrant and earthy, scented with flowers and fresh plums, confidently backed by older cedar/vanilla oak. Framed by firmish, chalky tannins, its brooding, powerful palate of slightly minty dark berry/plum fruit culminates in lingering nuances of smoky, leathery and chocolate-like complexity.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Deeper hue, though not as brilliant and bright as that of the 1860 Vines; medium- to full-bodied, with the strongest structure of the 3 Shirazs, though not the finesse of the 1860 Vines; the tannins are strong in typical Tahbilk fashion, the wine with yea

Jeremy Oliver (2001 Vintage) says
Robust and meaty, earthy and extracted, with a leathery bouquet of dark chocolate, dried herbs, cedar and vanilla tending to lack primary fruit Its rustic palate does reveal some deep, dark plum like fruit beneath its cask and bottle aged development. Drinking considerably older than its age, but with the depth of flavour and structure of cherry kernel-like tannin to go considerably further.
Australian Wine Annual 2007 2006
Jeremy Oliver (2000 Vintage) says
A firm and slightly metallic red with depth of fruit and tannin. Its earthy, dusty bouquet of meaty, leathery blood plums, white pepper, cloves and cinnamon precedes a long and dusty palate whose pleasing core of earthy red plum and redcurrant fruit is framed by firm, but pliant tannins.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Tight and restrained; intense, but long and deceptively powerful; very good black fruits and fine, ripe tannins; lingering finish; best under this label to date.
Australian Wine Companion 2006 2005
Jeremy Oliver (1999 Vintage) says
Powerfully fruited and firmly structured shiraz with a meaty, gamey fragrance of small berries, red-currants and plums, backed by spicy nuances of cinnamon, clove and rosemary. Well-ripened and densely packed cassis, plum, prune and raisin-like flavours play along the entirety of the long, succulent, savoury and nutty palate, framed by creamy, but astringent tannins.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Excellent mouthfeel; sweetly savoury mid to back-palate; fine, lingering tannins; French oak well integrated.
Australian Wine Companion 2005 2004
James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Red-purple, good for the age of the wine; the moderately intense bouquet has a complex earthy/savoury edge to the blackberry and spice fruit; the complex structure of the palate is sustained by fine tannins running throughout its length; in thoroughly traditional style for Tahbilk, although aged in French oak (rather than American) for 18 months.
