Chateau Tanunda Grand Barossa Wines

Chateau Tanunda Grand Barossa Wines

We've had incredible luck lately, getting some truly fabulous wines to taste. Included in these amazing events were the Grand Barossa wines from Chateau Tanunda, a South Australian winemaker of long-standing. We tasted a Riesling (yes, from Australia!), a Shiraz,  and their Cabernet Sauvignon. Here are my tasting notes from that evening:
Riesling - Flowery citrus on the nose and palate, really round in the mouth, crisp acidic finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon - green pepper on the nose, dark cherries, mild tannins, long smooth finish.

Shiraz - cocoa aroma, dark plum, smooth mouthfeel, lingering finish.
These were really outstanding wines, definitely worth searching out.

(Disclaimer: I was sent this wine for free to review on my blog. I did not pay for the item, receive payment for this review, or agree to give a positive review. Aside from any information gleaned from the company website, the opinions are my own.)

  1. Lucky you! I love Australian wines, most possibly influenced by the fact that I love Australia!
