The Everest Shiraz 2009 – Museum Release

RRP: $450.00


The Everest represents the absolute pinnacle of winemaking here at Château Tanunda. We select only the very best grapes from individual vineyard blocks in exceptional vintages, set aside only the finest part of the fermented wines for maturation in the finest French and American oak. We then make a barrel selection of the finest wines to produce two puncheon barrels of the pinnacle, or Everest, of that vintage.

Review by: Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Deep garnet colored, the 2009 The Everest Shiraz opens with intense scents of kirsch, dried cranberries, mulberries and blackberry tart with whiffs of cedar, potpourri, Indian spices, peppered salami and fertile loam in the background. Full-bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, it reveals layers of complex flavors supported by a medium level of grainy tannins and up-lifting acidity before finishing with great persistence. Approachable now, it should drink beautifully to 2023+.
