The Everest represents the absolute pinnacle of winemaking here at Château Tanunda. We select only the very best grapes from individual vineyard blocks in exceptional vintages, set aside only the finest part of the fermented wines for maturation in the finest French oak. We then make a barrel selection of the most exceptional wines to produce a few barrels of the pinnacle, or Everest, of that vintage.
Hand-picked, basket-pressed, and matured in the finest French oak, these wines are afforded the utmost attention and craftsmanship in the winery. Only very limited amounts are released in truly exceptional vintages in order to meet our stringent quality expectations.
Both The Everest Shiraz and Old Vine Grenache wines regularly attract praise and recognition from wine critics and wine shows around the world and are rated amongst the top echelon of wines in the world.
