Visit Ehrmanns at this year’s Wine Australia’s Independent and On-trade tasting on tables 21 and 22

03 January 2013

Ehrmanns is delighted to invite buyers and press to visit their stand at the Wine Australia’s Independent and On-trade tasting at Australia House on 31st January 2013.  This year, Ehrmanns will have two tables showcasing wines from Tahbilk and Robert Oatley Vineyards, both of which received the highest accolade of 5 red stars in the 2013 edition of James Halliday Australian Wine Companion. 

Robert Oatley Vineyards – Table 21

Ehrmanns will be showing wines from Robert Oatley Vineyards - the reincarnation of the Oatley family winemaking dynasty.  Wine is 'in the blood' of founder Bob Oatley and his eldest son Sandy, leaders of the family business founded upon a four decade passion for grape growing, winemaking and marketing.  Site selection is paramount, that 'sense of place', as where you choose to grow your grapes is vital to both style and quality.  The Oatley approach is to overlay this philosophy with an outstanding team of grape growers and winemakers to allow them every chance of producing a winner.  The task is clear: to craft wines that have varietal clarity, focus and which reflect their provenance - in a very modern fashion. 


In addition to 'The Navigator' range of wines (RSP £10.99) which is exclusive to the Independent channel, we shall be showing the Robert Oatley Signature Series range (RSP £13.99) and the premium Robert Oatley Finisterre range (RSP £19.99).

Tahbilk – Table 22

Ehrmanns will also be showcasing wines from Tahbilk, one of Australia’s First Family of Wines, which offer heritage, tradition and unique class at a perfectly reasonable price. Located in the Nagambie Lakes, a unique sub-region within the Goulburn Valley, the Tahbilk estate is one of the most beautiful and historic properties in Victoria. Tahbilk’s pedigree combines the best modern technology with the traditions of old and the results are as close to “vins de terroir” as Australia gets.

Among the wines being showcased will be Tahbilk Marsanne 2010 (RRP £11.49) and Tahbilk Museum Release 2006 (RRP £14.99) made from the oldest plantings of Marsanne in the world with vines dating back to 1927.  These are some of the most compellingly complex and age-worthy wines produced in the New World, with the Marsanne capable of developing for decades.

Also on display, Tahbilk Eric Stevens Purbrick Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon (RRP£36.99), named in honour of Eric Stevens Purbrick, who was winemaker for more than 40 vintages between 1931 and 1978. The grandfather of Tahbilk’s winemaker today, Alistair Purbrick, Eric Stevens Purbrick  was one of the early pioneers of varietal labelling in Australia, but perhaps his greatest contribution to Tahbilk was to create the Special Bin Shiraz and Cabernet made in 1948 and 1952 respectively, now rebranded in his memory.
