Soil: Red Brown Earth on Calcerous Subsoil
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’s a wine to stock up on to enjoy its evolution over the next decade.
