This wine represents the absolute pinnacle of winemaking here at Château Tanunda. We select only the very best grapes from individual vineyard blocks in exceptional vintages and set aside only the highest quality part of the fermented wines for maturation in the finest French oak. We then make a barrel selection of the finest wines to produce no more than three barrels of the pinnacle, or Everest, of that vintage.
Huon Hooke: 95 Points and #1 Barossa Grenache of Vintage 2015
“Deepish red colour with a subtle tinge of purple. The bouquet is very spicy and complex, and reveals substantial toasty oak, while the palate is rich and soft, full-bodied and velvet-smooth. It seems to have some small oak input. It’s decadently rich, concentrated, dense and high in tannins, yet soft textured. Ideally, it needs more time and will richly reward cellaring. A stand-out. (18 months in new French oak. Unfiltered. 400 bottles produced) Drink 2021 to 2037”
