Tahbilk Eric Stevens Purbrick Shiraz 2008

Tahbilk wines carrying the Eric Stevens Purbrick are made to reflect the best of vintage, only being made when a particular parcel of fruit stands out.

Fairly big-ish feel on opening, though I'd suggest it's more medium bodied. Charry and a touch meaty on opening, though once the perfume kicks in, more elegant notes present: a touch of vanilla oak, mint and black fruit.

Yes, medium bodied. Feels pretty fresh still at five years old - plenty of black fruit offered up; tannin fine and persistent. Not really one for now, don't get me wrong, it drinks well but I feel it will be better in the long run. 92+
