Château Tanunda The Everest Shiraz 2020


The pinnacle of the achievements of the team here, only released from the top vintages, after the fruit is sourced from the best blocks accessible. One-tonne open fermenters are used with hand-plunging four times a day. A year and a half in top-notch French oak before another couple in bottle in their cellars. Deep dark maroon. This is bold, burly and concentrated. The nose gives us notes of axle grease (in the most positive way), tar, coffee grinds, soy, dark chocolate, blackcurrants and a flick of blueberries. Rich and generous with impressive extraction topped by mouthcoating yet silky tannins. The wine has quite incredible length. It is almost chewy in structure and a real future here, a twenty year proposition.
