2016 Chateau Tanunda Terroirs Barossa Ebenezer Shiraz

2016 Chateau Tanunda Terroirs Barossa Ebenezer Shiraz

Deep, dark red colour with a good purple tint. The bouquet is savoury and earthy and slightly smoky, with a faint floral lift suggesting very ripe grapes. The tannins are graphite-like and drying on the middle and back-palates, with a very dry, sandpaper tannin aftertaste. Very good intensity and structure, long and satisfying. A ripping wine and a keeper.

DESCRIPTION
  • Been a long time since we've dived this old school, and pulled out a Chateau Tanunda wine, but when there as good as this one, it makes me think we have missed a beat or two over the years. Sourced from a single parish, or sub-region of the Barossa, Tanunda have pulled out all the classic Barossa stops with this wine. Red earth and sandy soils dominate, with pitch being more about lavender, spice and fruitcake. Exemplary BV Shiraz, from grand old name of the past.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The Terroirs of the Barossa looks to highlight the unique wine flavour characteristics qualities of the individual sub-regions, or ‘Parishes’ in the Barossa. These differences stem from the relationships between man and place, with soils, climate zones, viticulture, aspects and water access, all playing important roles in the flavor of the grapes of these sites.

    To ensure the unique character of this sub region is exemplified in the wine, small open fermenters and our basket press were employed to gently extract the wine. Aging in the finest quality oak and selection of the truest barrels has created a wine that respects and expresses its place of origin.

    From the northern district of Ebenezer, home to some of the greatest vineyards in Australia known for their great ageability and soft tannins. Soil: Red Brown Earth on Calcerous Subsoil. Altitude: 278 metres above sea level.

    TASTING NOTES

    Shiraz wines from this region are typically characterised by lifted aromas of lavender and spice.The palate is full of red fruits, leather, cedar and fine, talc like tannins.
