90 POINTS - Huon Hooke's The Real Review
A big, rambunctious expression of the variety - deep, dark red colour in the glass, with plums...jumping. The palate is more obviously cabernet with Ribena and fine, ripe tannins weaving nicely together. 
94 POINTS - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Offering excellent fruit purity and intensity, the beautifully lifted bouquet shows blackcurrant, Black Doris plum, violet and spicy oak characters. It’s equally satisfying on the palate with excellent weight and textural mouthfeel backed by chalky tannins, finishing engaging and immensely appealing. At its best: now to 2032
93 POINTS - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021
From a selection of vineyards across the Barossa and Eden valleys, small batch fermentation, matured for 18 months in French oak....Good value. Drink by 2028

Lifted aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and vanilla are accompanied by vibrant, dark berry fruits on the palate. The finish is long with fine-grained tannins from sixteen months maturation in a combination of new and older French oak hogsheads.

Although drinking well now, this wine may be cellared for up to ten years from vintage.

The grapes for Chateau Tanunda's Grand Barossa wines are selected from grapes grown throughout the Barossa and its myriad of sub-regions. It is this tapestry of ‘terroirs’ which enables them to create their classic and refined house style. 

The grapes are destemmed, but not crushed, and fermented in small stainless steel open fermenters. Fermentation takes place over 7 days with twice-daily hand plunging.

After draining the free-run juice, the skins are gently pressed in the JLB Vaslin Bucher press before18 months maturation in a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barrels.
