Expert Reviews

The grapes come from Chateau Tanunda's Bethany vineyard, planted in '60, and were open-fermented and basket-pressed; the wine spent two years in new and used French oak. The colour is excellent, and the wine is absolutely flooded with sweet cassis, redcurrant and plum fruit; just needs a little more emphasis on the finish.

Aroma/Palate

The bouquet has lifted aromas of blackcurrant, redcurrant and spice on the velvety smooth palate with hints of cedar and mint. The extensive finish is framed by elegant, fine-grained tannins from two years’ maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels.
