Château Tanunda Grand Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
Château Tanunda, Icon of the Barossa was established in 1890 and is the site of some of the Valley’s earliest vines as well as its first winery. The Château is privately owned by the Geber family who continue a tradition of fine wine making spanning three centuries.
For our Grand Barossa wines, we select grapes grown throughout the Barossa and its myriad of sub-regions. It is this tapestry of ‘terroirs’ which enables us to create our classic and refined house style.
By combining traditional and modern winemaking techniques, we make handcrafted wines of complexity, depth and intensity. Fermentation takes place in our Basket Press winery and each parcel spends a further seven days on skins to further extract flavour, tannin, and colour. After gentle pressing the wine is matured for 18 months in French & American oak barrels.
Lifted aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and vanilla are accompanied by vibrant, dark berry fruits on the palate. The finish is long with fine-grained tannins from 18 months maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels. Although drinking well now this wine may be cellared for up to ten years from vintage.
