Product Description

Barossa Tower Cabernet Merlot

Vintage Current vintage - Enquiries welcome

Winemaker  Stuart Bourne

Winemaking The grapes were destalked (separating berries from the bunch) 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. The skins were gently  pressed in the JLB Vaslin Bucher press and the wine spent 18 months in French oak hogsheads (300l).

Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon (67%) and Merlot (33%)

Region sourced from five of our loyal growers with vineyards in the Eden Valley and the Barossa-sub regions of Kalimna, Krondorf and Lyndoch.

Aroma It is this diversity of ‘terroirs’ which enables us to create our house style of Barossa Cabernet Merlot with lifted aromas of black cherry, blackcurrant and plum  

Palate chocolate and dark berry fruits on the palate. The finish is long with fine-grained tannins from eighteen months maturation in a combination of new and older French oak hogsheads.

Heritage 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 prime vineyards are owned by the Geber family who continue a  century-old tradition of fine winemaking.

Philosophy The Tower is the grand entrance to The Château and the Barossa Tower range is your gateway to a contemporary selection of wines for everyday drinking, from both classic and new varieties, highlighting the Barossa’s rich diversity.
