“From wine what sudden friendship springs!”  — John Gay

Label for Chateau Tanunda Grand Barossa Riesling

If you’re bringing Château Tanunda Grand Barossa Riesling to the party, Wine Harlots can guarantee you’ll have many friends. Plus, you’ll be a trend-setter. Although Château Tanunda is one of the oldest wineries in the Barossa, Australia, this is the first time the wine has been offered in the States. So if you’re always on the hunt for the newest, the latest and greatest, this is the wine you need to procure. This is a lovely, crowd-pleasing wine with aromas of citrus and lemon blossom that continue on the palate paired with a whisper of minerality. Château Tanunda says the perfect pairing is Beetroot & Adelaide Hills Goat’s Cheese, and who is The Harlot to disagree?

The details: 11.5% alcohol. Stelvin screw-cap closure. Appellation: Barossa. Varietal: riesling. The suggested retail is $16 USD and is being imported to the US by Banfi Vintners. This was a media sample provided by Banfi for the Wine Communicators of Australia and Rick Bakas Community Wine Tastings coordinated by Mastermind Consulting.

The music match is “You’ve Got a Friend” from Carole King from the seminal album Tapestry. In our experience, you bring the wine and the music, and you’ll have friends wherever you might travel.
