The Everest represents the absolute pinnacle of winemaking here at Château Tanunda. We select only the very best grapes from individual vineyard blocks in exceptional vintages, set aside only the finest part of the fermented wines for maturation in the finest French oak. We then make a barrel selection of the finest wines to produce a few barrels of the pinnacle, or Everest, of that vintage.
Hand-picked, basket pressed and neither fined nor filtered, the wines are given the very best possible treatment. Only very limited amounts are released in truly exceptional vintages in order to meet our stringent quality expectations be met.
Both Everest wines regulary attract praise and recognition with wine critics and wine shows around the world and are rated amongst the top echelon of wines in the world.
