The Chateau Single Vineyard Shiraz 2018
Tasting Notes

Lifted aromas of blackberry, blueberry and black pepper supported by spicy dark berry fruits on the palate. The finish is long and framed by elegant, fine grained tannins from eighteen months maturation in new and seasoned oak.

Winemaking

The grapes are destemmed but not crushed and fermented for seven days in open fermenters with regular plunging and remontage. 

Upon completion of fermentation, the skins are gently basket pressed before maturing for 18 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels.

Vineyard Notes

This wine originates from the deep sandy loam soils of the Château Tanunda Vine Vale vineyard, famous for some of the most elegant and fine-structured expressions of Barossa Shiraz.

Sweetly fruited and perfumed, the wine shows Black Doris plum, raspberry, vanilla, toasted spice and roasted nut characters on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that’s mouthfilling and delicious. It’s fleshy and generous with excellent fruit power, finishing persistent and textured. At its best: now to 2030.
