TAPANAPPA WHALEBONE VINEYARD 2013

Wine Region: Adelaide Hills, Australia

Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz

Tasting Notes

Opaque dark red back colour with a dark red hue. Pronounced aromas of blackcurrant intermixed with black olives are followed by a trace of liquorice, cedary tobacco characters and spice. Medium to full bodied with a sense of firmness to the mid palate, blackcurrant with flashes of liquorice are the dominate force over some dark cherries.

About the Winery

The word Tapanappa is probably derived from the local aboriginal language, and likely translates to “stick to the path”. This is exactly what this partnership intends to do, by continuing Brian’s career-long mission of selecting distinguished sites. Matching the climate, soil and geology of the site to the right varieties, and fastidiously managing the vineyard to maximise quality and produce unique Australian “terroir” driven wines.
