Barossa Tower Shiraz 2005

Tasting Notes

The Barossa Tower Shiraz has rich, ripe blackberry and plum flavours. It is fresh and luscious with plenty of upfront flavour and persistence. The palate is dense and layered, with firm oak tannins to close. Beautifully balanced tannins derived from twelve months in French oak complement the luscious fruit and mouthfeel making this a very approachable style.

Winemaking

The grapes were destalked (separating berries from the bunch) and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel open fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 7 days on skins at 28° C. The skins were gently pressed in the JLB Vaslin Bucher press and the wine spent 12 months in French and American oak hogsheads (300l).

Vinification

The Barossa Tower range is our accessible premium range of Barossan wines from our own vineyards as well as from selected premium growers in the valley.

Heritage
Chateau Tanunda was established in 1890 and is a heritage icon of Australia’s wine industry. This grand building, its magnificent gardens and vineyards are owned by the Geber family who continue the century old tradition of fine winemaking.
