100 year Shiraz 2008

93 Points – Wine Enthusiast
Joe Czierwinski, February 2012

“Winemaker Stu Bourne, formerly of Barossa Valley Estates (think E&E Black Pepper Shiraz), has landed on his feet at Château Tanunda, and this luxury bottling is a beauty. It’s full bodied and richly tannic yet drinkable, with layers of mocha and blueberries, hints of grilled meat and a long, velvety finish.”

91 Points – Wine Spectator
Harvey Steiman, February 2011

“Ripe and round, with a spicy, smoky character surrounding the black cherry, blackberry and beet leaf flavors that persist onto the complex, inviting finish. Drink now through 2018.”

90 Points – Year’s Best Australian Shiraz – Wine & Spirits

“The structure and concentration of this wine derives from 100-year-old vines. For now, though that firmness is apparent, it’s hidden under sweet, unctuous black fruit. Hints of thyme and tar come forward, as will more complexity as the wine ages.”
