Chateau Tanunda Noble Baron Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

AUR00168A

Chateau Tanunda成立於1890年,是澳洲現存最大及最古老的酒窖古堡,目前已被註冊為澳洲文物遺產。Chateau Tanunda不但擁有部分Barossa Valley最早期的葡萄田,同時也是該產區最早的酒莊。但後來由於保養不善,曾一度衰落。直至1998年的一個早上,Chateau Tanunda終於遇見他的伯樂。祖先在19世紀已在南非種植葡萄,熱愛葡萄酒的商人John Geber某天騎單車經過於此,便被宏偉而富有潛力的巴伐利亞式古堡吸引,令他第二天就決定買入這所一直乏人問津的古堡。經過多年時間,John Geber成功把曾經破落不堪的古堡起死回生,重拾昔日光輝。Chateau Tanunda揉合傳統工藝與現代科技,以最少的人工干預釀酒,讓葡萄現它們真正性格,並釀出具獨特風格的手工佳釀。

Chateau Tanunda, established in 1890, is the largest and oldest wine Chateau in Australia. It is also a designated monument in Australia’s Register of State Heritage. The Bavarian-style Chateau is the site of some of the first vines planted in the Barossa as well as the Valley’s first winery. But with the poor maintenance, the chateau fell into decay. Untill one morning in 1998, the chateau finally met its new owner. A wine enthusiast and successful businessman whose ancestors planted grapes in South Africa in 19th Century, John Gaber, who was on his morning bike ride that day, was fascinated with the magnificent Chateau with high potentials of making good wines. On the very next day, he made an immediate decision to buy the Chateau which had been waiting for a potential buyer for a long time. After years of efforts, John successfully revived the once decayed Chateau and let it thrive again. Chateau Tanunda handcrafts their wines by combining traditional method and modern technology, with minimal intervention to allow the true character of grapes to express themselves, making bottles of characteristic wines.

Winemaking:
The grapes were handpicked from prime, low-yielding vineyards from some of the Barossa’s most renowned sub-regions, including Greenock and Lydoch. They were destemmed, but not crushed, treated with utmost care during the winemaking process. Prior to basket-pressing, the grapes were carefully hand-plunged. And French oak barrels were used for maturing.

Tasting Notes:
Noble Baron Cabernet Sauvignon is a superb handcrafted wine of complexity and intensity. Brillant ruby red in colour, the bouquet displays enticing aromas of blackcurrant, tobacco, green tea and mint. The palate is rich and concentrated while the elegant French Oak gives a ‘subtle lift’ to the wine. Soft supple tannins add to the texture and weight, and the long, lingering finish. The wine will age gracefully for 10 years plus.
