The Everest Old Vine Grenache 2018 is the pinnacle of Grenache at Château Tanunda.
Only the very best grapes are selected from individual vineyard blocks in exceptional vintages. Hand-picked and hand-sorted to 1 ton open fermenters with hand-plunging four times daily and careful basket pressing. The highest quality parcels from this years fermented wines are set aside for maturation in the finest French and American oak. A barrel selection is made of only the finest wines to produce the pinnacle of that vintage: The Everest.
The vigour of these dry grown bush vines are naturally reduced and produce less than 1ton/acre. Careful viticultural management allows for optimum ripening conditions and the best possible quality Grenache.
Maturation: 18 months seasoned French oak
Production: 33 dozen
