Ch√Ęteau Tanunda beats US wines for Top 100 Value rating

Château Tanunda’s Grand Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 has been featured in Wine Spectator's 2014 ‘Top 100 Values’ from around the world, listed as the second best value wine of Australian and New Zealand.

Selected from more than 18,000 reviews, the Australian Cabernet Sauvignon has done well to achieve a high rating in the US, where Cabernet Sauvignon is the most popular red wine.

Harvey Steinman, who reviewed the wine, said Cabernet has been coming on strong in Australia.

“This firm, focused and juicy version from the Barossa – the home of big reds – delivers with black cherry, orange peel and black tea flavours. Drink now through 2020,” he said.

John Geber, Château Tanunda Proprietor, said the winery has had a successful year and were looking forward to the future.

“To have achieved such a high standard of international recognition for our iconic Barossa winery with a Top 100 Values listing and having our ‘100 Year Old Vines Semillon’ served to world leaders at the G20 Summit as well as winning ‘Australian Wine Producer of the Year’ at the 2014 Berlin Wine Trophy brings us proudly into 2015 and our 125th year anniversary celebrations,” he said.

Château Tanunda’s strategy in the US has been to focus on wines in the $14-$25 price segment, where there has been more opportunity for success and growth.

Since implementing the strategy, Château Tanunda has seen global double-digit growth on last year.
