From the amazing patchwork of Barossa Shiraz vineyards.18 Months French and American Oak. Little gold stickers have changed a little. Winemaker is Jeremy Ottawa.
Chateau Tanunda, Grand Barossa, Shiraz, Barossa, 2021
Deep garnet with a bright rim. Savoury and dark expression: dark fruits and chary earth with meaty, peppery spice. It smells like Peppered Beef potato chips/crisps. Dehydrated spices and near violet blossom over licks of licorice. Slick front palate with plenty of those dark berries well supported by firm, fine tannin and a clean shot of bright acidity to close and freshen up. Lingering dark, yeasty, umami goodness for a well constructed regional varietal mélange.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
