Chateau Tanunda 100 Year Old Vines Shiraz 2015 – 97 Points Huon Hooke

RRP: $150.00


From some of the oldest ungrafted Shiraz vines in the world, all of at least 100 years of age.

The hand-picked grapes were destemmed, but not crushed, and spent seven days on their skins in open fermenters with daily hand-plunging and pumping over of the cap to more gently extract colour, flavours and tannins. This was followed by careful basket pressing followed 22 months’ maturation in our cellars in a combination of French and American oak (20% New).

The wine delivers classical regional characters of dense, spicy blueberry fruit and savoury pan jus. Next come hints of liquorice, plum, and all-spice all delicately interwoven.


“Deep red colour with a good tint of purple, the bouquet deep in dark chocolate and cocoa powder, charcoal, soot and earthy notes, and rich dark fruitcake. The wine is magnificently sumptuous in the mouth: very rich, velvet textured, concentrated and beautifully balanced. Powerful and long, but not a blockbuster, it retains freshness and vitality. Endless persistence. A great wine. Drink 2017-2042. ” – 97 Points – Huon Hooke: Equal #1 of 72 rated Barossa Shiraz 2015 

“It pours on the power. It strikes blow after blow of thick, sweet, dense flavour. Blackberry, honey, soy and malt, inflections of mint and clove, a churn of grainy, muscular tannins. There’s real flex here, real grunt. You either succumb or you stand out of its way. Red berry flavours add a brighter note; a light on a mountain of flavour. Cellaring until 2030” – 94 Points – James Halliday
