Chateau Tanunda (Barossa) 2012 The Everest OBV Grenache
5 Stars The Real review
95 Points - Huon Hooke
“Medium deep red colour, with the merest tinge of purple. The aromas are spicy and quite minty, slightly medicinal, aniseed, black fruit and red fruits, a hint of licorice, fathomlessly complex. The palate is lusciously rich and fruit-sweet, gorgeous and captivating. A blinder of a wine. Sweet, with a touch of firmness on the finish and a clean aftertaste that seems to linger forever.”
"Deep garnet red with purple hues. The nose starts with some musky sweet notes, logan berry and framboise notes follow. The palate is rather plush and velvety even at this stage. Very concentrated fruit flavours, ripe, open-knit but quite dense tannins and a buoyant spicy finish."
The 2012 vintage comes from one select hand picked vineyard in the western Greenock sub-region, a small block of 40 year old bush vines. Yields are controlled to less than 1 ton per acre with careful viticultural management by hand, allowing for optimum ripening conditions and best possible quality Grenache.
This wine represents the absolute pinnacle of winemaking at Château Tanunda. Only the very best grapes from individual vineyard blocks in exceptional vintages are selected, the finest fermented wines is set aside of the for maturation in the best French oak. Another barrel selection of the finest wine is selected to produce the pinnacle, or Everest, of that vintage.
