Terroirs of the Barossa ‘Ebenezer District’ Shiraz 2019
$60.00 / bottle
Shiraz wines from this region are typically characterised by lifted aromas of lavender and spice. The palate is full of red fruits, leather, cedar and fine, talc-like tannins.
To ensure the unique character of this sub-region is exemplified in the wine, small open fermenters and our basket press were employed to gently extract the wine. Aging in the finest quality oak and selection of the truest barrels has created a wine that respects and expresses its place of origin.
The Barossa has some of the oldest and diverse soil types in the world, contributing to what makes our wines unique. Discover the differences between Barossa’s sub-regions. A journey through the Terroirs is a lesson in the Barossa’s versatility. This is the 10th vintage of this wine from the Ebenezer District, an area famous for its elegant and structured style of Shiraz.
Soil: Red Brown Earth on Calcerous Subsoil
Angus Hughson, Wine Pilot
From the entire Chateau Tanunda range this is the pick and the best value by far. It’s classic Barossa from Ebenezer and a huge crowd pleaser that will put a smile on plenty of faces thanks to a combination of raw power and flavour complexity.
Bright deep ruby, it boasts explosive aromas of fleshy blackberry, mulberry, and earthy tones wrapped up in a soft blanket of sweet oak. It then maintains that impact on the palate with dense chocolate and a dusting of cocoa and spice over waves of dark berry fruits before oak again returns to support and sustain an impressively long finish. It’s a wine to stock up on to enjoy its evolution over the next decade.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Combining richness and elegance, the wine shows dark berry, cocoa, clove and cedar characters on the nose. It’s fleshy and delectable in the mouth with waves of ripe fruit and spicy flavours together with velvety texture and chalky tannins, making it firmly structured and delicious at the same time. Impressively long and complex. At its best: 2024 to 2039.

Medium deep crimson. Attractive red plum mulberry, raspberry, blackberry aromas with underlying roasted walnut notes. Inky-textured and smooth with plentiful ripe red plums, mulberry, blackberry fruits, fine looseknit chocolaty tannins and savoury complexity. Finishes chalky firm with cola/ aniseed notes and persistent mineral length. Ready to drink. Drink now – 2026
Erin Larkin, The Wine Advocate
The 2019 Terroirs of the Barossa Ebenezer District Shiraz has plenty of oak in there to bolster the copious, abundant fruit; this is savory and red, with layers of gravel, iodine, ferrous, hung deli meat and exotic spice. There is really good length of flavor through the finish.(...) it is well made, and the fruit is excellent...
