Winemaker's Notes:

All great wines are made as much in the vineyard as they are in the winery. Commenced by the current generation's father Eric with a Shiraz from the 1948 harvest, the best fruit from each vintage is put aside for release as what were then known as 'Special Bin', then 'Reserve' and now 'Eric Stevens Purbrick'. They are wines that set the upper level benchmark for reds at Tahbilk and quite simply are the finest they do.
