Chateau Tanunda Shiraz The Chateau 100 Year Old Vines 2009

Chateau Tanunda Shiraz The Chateau 100 Year Old Vines 750ml 2009      
Sku: 1836584*

With power and fortitude, eleven rows of 100 year old vines stand on a one acre vineyard highly elevated in the Eden Valley (1800ft). The sun is ample, yet the grapes rest overnight in the cool breeze, ensuring an extended ripening period and dense fruit fl avor. The grapes are handpicked and undergo whole berry fermentation in small steel open fermenters. Gentle basket pressing occurs in one single press of up to 24 hours, resulting in a silky texture and fine tannins. Aging takes place in new (30%) and old (70%) French puncheons for 18 months.

 Wine Advocate 91 points (Feb 2013)
Deep purple-black in color, the 2009 The Chateau 100 Year Old Vines Shiraz has an intense nose of freshly crushed blueberries and black cherries with suggestions of sage, black pepper, lavender and iodine. Full bodied and generously fruited with layers of crushed berry and earthy/herbal flavors, it is framed by a medium level of chewy tannins and crisp acid, finishing long. Drink it now to 2020+.
