Tapanappa – 5 star winery rating

Author: James Halliday
Source: Australian Wine Companion
Review Date: Jun 2010

Arguably the most interesting of all new wineries to be announced in Australia over the past few years. Its partners are Brian Croser of Petaluma, Jean-Michel Cazes of Chateau Lynch-Bages in Pauillac and Societe Jaques Bollinger, the parent company of Champagne Bollinger. The core of the business is the Koppamurra vineyard acquired from Koppamurra Wines prior to the 2003 vintage.

Whalebone Vineyard Cabernet Shiraz 2003 – 95 points. Included in the top 5 Cabernet Shiraz blends of the year.

“Abounds with soft and warm black fruits followed by fine, ripe and gently persistent tannins from the mid-palate through to the finish. Quality French oak rounds the wine off.”

Whalebone Vineyard Cabernet Shiraz 2004 – 95 points. Included in the top 5 Cabernet Shiraz blends of the year.

“Medium red-purple, not star-bright; a very attractive mix of sweet red and black fruits with seamless quality oak and fine, ripe tannins.”

Cellar Door opens daily, 11am – 4pm
