Chateau Tanunda Terroirs of the Barossa
Expressing the beauty and versatility of its various sub-regions, the Barossa Valley is brought to life in Château Tanunda’s terroirs of the barossa range.
The Barossa Valley is one of Australia’s highest achieving wine regions, loved throughout the world for its beautifully bold Shiraz. But did you know that one of the reasons the Barossa is able to achieve so highly is that it is home to an incredible diversity of terroirs across its sub-regions?
This is a fact Château Tanunda brings to life in its award-winning ‘Terroirs of the Barossa’ range, featuring Shiraz from the Eden Valley, Marananga, Ebenezer District, and Greenock sub-regions.
The Terroirs of the Barossa Eden Valley Shiraz embodies the unique characters of this special sub-region with its altitudes and ancient soils.
A Gold medal winner at the Berliner Wine Trophy 2020, and with 94 and 95 point scores from renowned critics Huon Hook and Andrew Caillard MW, the 2018 vintage reflects the slate and granite soils with strong mineral notes and blackberry and Morello cherry flavours.
The sub-region of Marananga is centred in the North West quadrant of the Barossa and provides some of the Valley’s most powerful wines. The Terroirs of the Barossa Marananga Shiraz 2018 fits the bill with its flavours of jam and fruitcake. Another high achiever, it won Gold at the 2020 China Wine and Spirits Awards, plus has rave reviews including 94+ points from Andrew Caillard MW.
Built to last
In the northern district of Ebenezer, the Shiraz vines create wines of great ageability and soft tannins with lifted aromas of lavender and spice. Another lauded Shiraz, the Terroirs of the Barossa Ebenezer Shiraz 2018 is full of red fruit, leather and cedar characters with fine, talc like tannins.
The sub-region of Greenock is in the most westerly zone of the Barossa. Its terroir gives rise to some of the richest expressions of Shiraz from the Barossa, as illustrated deliciously in the Terroirs of the Barossa Greenock Shiraz 2018.
Winner of Gold at the 2020 China Wine and Spirits Awards, plus 95+ point reviews, it’s dark and brooding with wonderful cellaring potential.
