about this product

Château Tanunda The Château 100 Year Old Vines Shiraz is drinkable history. The fruit comes from vines planted before 1917, pre-dating the widespread introduction of mechanisation and irrigation. These ancient, dry-grown, low-yielding bush vines are hard-working, producing fruit that manifests as deep, concentrated and complex.

Grapes are handpicked and destemmed, then left, uncrushed, on skins, and gently plunged four times daily to carefully extract flavour and tannin. The fruit is then basket pressed, before 24 month maturation in French and American oak, 20% new.

Notably deep and rich, 100 Year Old Vines Shiraz is at once weighty and balanced. Christmas spice mingles with black fruit and jammy plum notes, with amazing power and intensity. Like velvet in the mouth, it is a profound expression of old vine splendour.

Region Barossa

Barossa Valley Colonel William Light, the South Australian colony’s Surveyor-General, named the Barossa in 1837 after the site of an English victory over the French in the Spanish Peninsular War. In the mid-1800’s Silesian and English immigrants settled in the area. The Barossa itself comprises two distinct sub-regions: Eden Valley and the warmer Barossa Valley floor at 270m.The Barossa Valley enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate characterised by hot dry summers and relatively low rainfall. Cool sea breezes from the Gulf of St Vincent modify the temperature, however hot northerly winds can occasionally dominate creating considerable vine stress. Many older established vineyards are dry-grown, but supplementary irrigation is also extensively used. The valley is comprised of rich brown soils and alluvial sands. A long history of uninterrupted viticulture in the area means the Barossa valley is home to Australia’s largest concentration of old-vine Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre with many

A long history of uninterrupted viticulture in the area means the Barossa valley is home to Australia’s largest concentration of old-vine Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre with many over 100 years old. Although most famous for Shiraz, the Barossa can also produce fragrant and deliciously fruity Grenache blends and beautifully rich, chocolatey Cabernet Sauvignons.

Winery CHATEAU TANUNDA

This historic chateau was built in the 1880’s and is home to some of the earliest vine plantings circa 1840. It was at Château Tanunda that several of Australia’s most illustrious winemakers worked, Max Schubert, Jack Mann and Bill Seppelt, to name a few. Since 1998 it has been a family owned business, and it was the Gerber family that restored the chateau to its former glory. The chateau boasts 250 acres, in prime locations throughout the Barossa Valley and produces a diverse range of 25 wines from sparkling to full-bodied reds through to light whites and fuller richer Chardonnays, from over a dozen different grape varieties.
