There is definitely a Chateau Tanunda house style, a common thread that runs through all their wines. It’s a traditional take on the Barossa that shows both the region’s savoury and sweet sides. They are also generally powerful, but also understated, wines thanks to extended time in oak, which no doubt helps them to age well, 100 plus year old vines in this case also a significant drawcard.

The charm in this wine is in its brooding, dark heart. There are lashings of rich mulberry and blueberry fruits lifted by ground, toasted spices and red earth aromas, with oak only in support. The palate is robust and bright – hearty dark fruits to start before the old vines kick in to provide a subtle, seamless and long finish underpinned by fine but significant tannins. Delicious to enjoy now but also with the stuffing to improve over the next decade.
