The wine writer Stuart Knox tasted and rated three vintage 2022 wines from Château Tanunda for The Real Review of Huon Hooke:
- The Château Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2022 – 92 POINTS
Deep ruby red colour. Black fruits, black olive tapenade and nori aromas. Rich and dense dark fruits on entry then savoury ironstone and nori characters fill in adding character. Tannins are firm but work well to lengthen and dry the finish.
- The Château Single Vineyard Old Vine Grenache 2022 – 91 POINTS
Light ruby glints in the glass. Raspberry, crushed violet and agave aromatics. Mouth-filling blue fruits immediately drawn your attention then agave and dark loam savouries balance that fruit intensity.
Tannins work in the background, controlling the flow and it rolls long. Loses some focus just at the finish.
- The Old Cooperage Cabernet Franc 2022 – 91 POINTS
Deep ruby colour with a vibrant lift of blood plums and bay leaf aromatics.
Palate sits medium to full with dark berry fruit entwined with dried blood and leafy savoury notes.
Good length and finishes nicely drying.
