Next up on our Taste the Barossa tour deep in the Barossa Valley was Château Tanunda Winery, which dates back to 1890. Here, in addition to Shiraz, the varietals included Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Chardonnay, and Riesling.
Unfortunately, the grounds were more impressive than the wines. The samplings were okay, but not up to the standards of Peter Lehmann or what I’ve come to expect from other vintners from this area.
It didn’t help that our server was a bit on the surly side. And woe be to anyone who whispered during one of her recitals on what we were tasting next. This may have had an adverse effect on the tasting, so perhaps the wines might fare better when sampled in another setting.
I will say that the cellar and barrels were impressive, though:
The views here were quite impressive:
The tasting area within the cellar, which was adjacent to the tasting room I displayed above, was also quite nice:
Even the bar area looked fun, or at least more fun than our experience in the separate tasting room:
