Chateau Tanunda The Chateau Cabernet Sauvignon

Region Barossa Valley, SA

Winemaker Stuart Bourne

Vintage Current vintage - Enquiries welcome

Heritage Château Tanunda was established in 1890 and started what is now over a century old tradition of fine wine making. ‘The Château’ is a heritage icon, the grand buildings, magnificent gardens and vineyards are owned by the Geber family who continue the century old tradition of fine wine making.

Vineyard The grapes for this year’s Château Cabernet Sauvignon were grown on the sandy loam soils of block 16 in our Bethany vineyard which was first planted in 1960

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 22 - 28° C. The skins were gently pressed in the JLB Vaslin Bucher press giving a soft tannin structure to the wine. Finally the wine was left on its lees to give texture and mid–palate weight along with 24 months barrel maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barriques(225l) and hogsheads (300l).

Colour ‘The Château’ Cabernet Sauvignon displays deep, rich purple and red hues.

Aroma The bouquet has lifted aromas of blackcurrant, redcurrant and spice

Palate on the velvety smooth palate with hints of cedar and mint. The complex structure and powerful finish lingers on the palate giving the wine great length.
