The 2018 Chateau Tanunda Terroirs wine of the Barossa reflects the slate and granite soils with strong mineral notes, and fruit flavours of blackberry, morello cherry. This Chateau Tanunda Terroirs wine is complex deeper notes of earth and cured meats bring the palate to a long and evenly weighted finish. The Terroirs of the Barossa is a monster wine of power and persistence that begs to be cellared.
The 2018 Chateau Tanunda Terroirs wine has a deep, dark red purple colour with a gun-flinty, machine-oil overtone to the bouquet. There are black fruit aromas beneath. The palate is very complex and layered, with smoky, briary, black olive and graphite nuances that follow throughout the palate. The tannins are firm and compact and beautifully balanced to add structure and contribute to length. This Chateau Tanunda Terroirs is a ripping wine. Drinking Well: 2020–2035
