Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red color. Enticing aromas of blackcurrant, tobacco, green tea and mint. The palate is rich and concentrated whilst the elegant French oak gives a 'subtle lift' to the wine. Soft supple tannins give the wine added texture and weight and the long, lingering finish ensures this wine will age gracefully for 10 years plus.

89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Shiraz

My Notes:

About Chateau Tanunda:

Chateau Tanunda Estate, one of Australia's largest and oldest chateau (est. 1890), is the birthplace of the Barossan wine industry, and is the site of Barossa Valley's first vine plantings (1845) and first winery (1848). The charismatic John Geber, already a fine wine enthusiast, happened unpon the majestic chateau in 1998 on an early morning bike ride. It wasn't long before he had made it his mission to reinstate it to its former glory, becoming only the 3rd owner in the chateau's 120-year history. The Geber family is now the proud cutodian of this great icon and its heritage, and is dedicated to the art of fine winemaking.
