Chateau Tanunda was established in 1890 and is the site of the very first vines planted in the Barossa in the 1840s. 'The Chateau' 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 winemaking.

The grapes come from the estate Bethany Vineyard, fermentation in the usual Chateau Tanunda fashion, maturation in new and used French oak for 18 months. The wine is generous, medium to full-bodied, and well enough made, but lacks that final varietal definition of cabernet sauvignon. James Halliday, Rating 89, 25th July 2014
Winery Tasting Notes
Deep, rich purple and red hues.
The bouquet has lifted aromas of blackcurrant, redcurrant and spice.
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.
