Chateau Tanunda Grand Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
The ‘Grand Barossa’ series sources fruit from across the best sites and
vineyards throughout the region. The wine spends 18 months in a mix of new
and previously seasoned French oak.
Rim of red and core of a more inky magenta, this is as youthful as expected.
A lifted and fully flavoured style offering some early complexity. Dry
herbs, beef stock, black olives, warm earth, animal skins and black fruits.
More rustic than refined, but this is the Barossa so it works. Good acidity
carries the flavours along a seamless palate. A wine of mid-intensity which
lingers finishing with slightly furry tannins. 91 for the moment, expect 92 in a year and even higher over the next decade.
