Eleven rows of old vines reputed to be 120 years have survived the elements. These low-yielding vines give rise to superior, bold and impressive flavored fruit. The classic Barossa regional characters of dark, spicy plums are all complimented by the subtle vanillin tones of American oak that lengthens the palate of the wine. A superior wine with luxurious silky fine grained tannins. Average production is 800 bottles- only in a good vintage year. We recommend cellaring for 10 years. "Taste 100 years of Barossa history"
"Purple-crimson; sourced from a single 0.4 ha vineyard high in the hills of the Eden Valley; the register of aromas and flavours switches decisively to a brighter, yet more savoury/spicy/earthy blackberry and licorice spectrum; outstanding length and balance."
Australian Wine Companion
"Winemaker Stu Bourne, formerly of Barossa Valley Estates (think E&E Black Pepper Shiraz), has landed on his feet at Chateau Tanunda, and this luxury bottling is a beauty. It's full bodied and richly tannic yet drinkable, with layers of mocha and blueberries, hints of grilled meat and a long, velvety finish."
"Ripe and round, with a spicy, smoky character surrounding the black cherry, blackberry and beet leaf flavors that persist onto the complex, inviting finish. Drink now through 2018."
