Château Tanunda was established in 1890 and is the site of the very first vines planted in the Barossa in the 1840s. ‘The Château’ is an Australian heritage icon and its grand buildings, magnificent gardens and vineyards are owned by the Geber family who continue the century old tradition of fine wine making.

Vineyard The Barossa Valley is the only Australian wine region that can produce different shiraz styles from the numerous sub-regions each with distinctive characteristics. The ‘Terroirs of the Barossa’ are an embodiment of the environment, the valley, the soil and the climate This elegant and structured wine is made from the grapes from two blocks, including the 80 year old vines at the vineyard at Ebenezer. The vines grow in lighter sandy loam soil and are hand picked as they have been for 3 generations.

Winemaking The grapes were destalked and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel open fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 7 days on skins at 28° C. Further maturation in a mixture of French and American Oak for 18 months has resulted in a wine of great structure and finesse.
