Château Tanunda, Icon of the Barossa was established in 1890 and is
the site of some of the Valley’s earliest vines as well as its first winery.
The Château is privately owned by the Geber family who continue a
tradition of fine wine making spanning three centuries.
For our Grand Barossa wines, we select grapes grown throughout the
Barossa and its myriad of sub-regions. It is this tapestry of ‘terroirs’
which enables us to create our classic and refined house style.
By combining both traditional and modern winemaking techniques we are able to make handcrafted wines of complexity, depth and intensity. The individual parcels were destemmed and fermented with careful temperature control and regular remontage to optimally extract colour, tannin and flavours. The wine was then gently pressed before 18 months maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels.
Lifted aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and vanilla are accompanied
by vibrant, dark berry fruits on the palate. The finish is long with
fine-grained tannins from eighteen months maturation in a combination
of new and seasoned French oak barrels. Although drinking well now
this wine may be cellared for up to ten years from vintage.
