Château Tanunda 50 Year Old Vines Shiraz 2020


After destemming, the grapes, sourced from Marananga, Light’s Pass and Bethany, spend a week on skins in open fermenters. Twice daily hand-plunging and then two years maturation in a combination of new and older French oak. An opaque, dense black/purple. There are notes of dusty earth, spices, axle grease, chocolate, tar, soy, beef stock and aniseed. A hint of blueberries adds to the fun with very good overall focus and a fine line of acidity. There is serious length here with the intensity maintained for the full journey. Look forward to terrific drinking over the next ten to fifteen years.

Variety: Red Wine, Shiraz
