Chateau Tanunda The Everest The Chateau Cru Barossa Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Neither fined nor filtered, with some impact on the brightness of the colour; it is the best wine of the vintage, and the vintage itself has to be 'truly exceptional'. Some would question whether '09 could be thus regarded, but this is certainly a wine full of power, character and flavour, the last coming in part from 22 months in new French and American oak; there are interesting changes in flavour as the wine moves across the palate, from black fruits to red to spicy/savoury nuances. Dauntingly complex, and I would love to see it in 10 years.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Only 2 new French puncheons (less than 90 dozen bottles) are made of this wine; the bouquet immediately attests to its quality, with fragrant black fruits and integrated oak, the medium- to full-bodied palate imperious in its power and drive, savoury nuances within the heart of the deep fruit flavours adding to the length of the palate. An unconvincing cork may shorten the life of the wine.
