Château Tanunda 50 Year Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


The grapes here spend seven days on skins in open fermenters with twice daily hand-plunging before a year and a half maturation in a mix of new and older French barriques. The vines hail from the sub-region of Bethany. An intense black/maroon hue. The nose exhibits chocolate and plums, spices, a pleasing flick of oak and aniseed. There are notes of soy, leather, dried herbs, licorice and beef stock. On the palate, notes of mint and coffee beans emerge. The wine offers a silky texture, satiny tannins and a lingering finish. A really lovely wine with ten to fifteen years ahead of it.
