Intense deep red in color, with lifted aromas of red berry fruit and spice. The palate is soft and supple, yet elegant with plenty of upfront fruit flavor and length. Hints of exotic spices and pepper marry with vanillan oak and a Barossan earthiness on the long lingering finish. Beautifully balanced tannins derived from 18 months in American and French oak complement the luscious fruit and give the wine added complexity.
Château Tanunda is Australia's oldest and grandest Château. Established in 1890, it is located at the very heart of the BAROSSA VALLEY - Australia’s most famous premier wine growing region - and is a cornerstone of the Barossan wine industry. A heritage Australian icon, and first growth Château, the estate is the home of the first vines planted in the Barossa Valley in 1845.
The majestic blue stone building with beautiful surrounding gardens and vineyards is a truly awe-inspiring place to visit and is as magnificent as some of the best wine estates around the world.
The Geber family, who are proud custodians of this great icon and its heritage, continue a century-old tradition of fine winemaking. Our house style is classic and refined, combining both traditional and modern wine making to make superb handcrafted wines of complexity and intensity.
