Château Tanunda The Château Shiraz 2020


Another single vineyard wine, this time from the Vine Vale sub-region of the Barossa. After basket pressing, the wine spent 18 months maturing in French oak barrels. The colour is a dark maroon. Lovely and enticing aromas here, with notes of chocolate, ripe dark fruits, mocha, coffee beans and some dark plums. There are good signs of early complexity here. Truffle notes and warm earth characters emerge on the palate. There is also no mistaking the serious grip found here – firm, slightly grainy tannins. This is a wine with excellent length, fine balance and good focus. It will provide delicious drinking for at least the better part of a decade. The finish is oozing with plum flavours.
