expert reviews about
2014 Chateau Tanunda Newcastle Shiraz Gren Mourv Cinsault
Gary Walsh (2014 Vintage) says
Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and Cinsault. Exclusive to Dan Murphy’s and associated stores. They’re making pretty good wines at Tanunda these days. Incumbent wine master Stuey Bourne is something of an identity, and before him, Tim Smith did some pretty solid work too. On the up and up, as they say. Raspberry, cherry, vanilla, toasted coconut and Asian spices with a distinctly saucy aspect. Medium bodied, juicy and plump, but with that savoury Barossa coal character, for want of a better description, to temper. There’s well pitched acidity and supple fine grained tannin, along with good length. Altogether tasty and enjoyable.
James Halliday (2014 Vintage) says
38/28/27/7%, each component made and matured separately in an assemblage of various oaks for 19 months before blending and bottling. Clever winemaking has produced the maximum result, with a suite of predominantly red fruits on a palate notable for its freshness and drinkability. Great value. May 2016
