Heaps of primary fruits consisting of Blackberry, cassis and black cherry, laced with vanillan new oak. Smooth, well balanced, full bodied palate with voluptuous fruits. Fine sand paper tannins drive a warm long, long finish. New world warm climate Cabernet at its best.
Chateau Tanunda 50 year old vine Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Barossa Valley, SA
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
