Chateau Tanunda The Chateau 100 Year Old Vines Shiraz 2008

SKU 00816


The classic regional characters of dense, spicy blueberry fruit along with hints of liquorice, plum and all-spice are all delicately interwoven with 1/3 new and 2/3 older French oak. 2008 has all the hallmarks of being a truly great Eden Valley vintage and we believe this wine will age gracefully for 10 years+

James HallidayPurple-crimson; sourced from a single 0.4 ha vineyard high in the hills of the Eden Valley; the register of aromas and flavours switches decisively to a brighter, yet more savoury/spicy/earthy blackberry and licorice spectrum; outstanding length and balance.

Wine EnthusiastWinemaker Stu Bourne, formerly of Barossa Valley Estates (think E&E Black Pepper Shiraz), has landed on his feet at Château Tanunda, and this luxury bottling is a beauty. It's full bodied and richly tannic yet drinkable, with layers of mocha and blueberries, hints of grilled meat and a long, velvety finish.

Wine SpectatorRipe and round, with a spicy, smoky character surrounding the black cherry, blackberry and beet leaf flavors that persist onto the complex, inviting finish. Drink now through 2018.
