Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Cabernet-Shiraz is one of the ripest flavoured vintages from the unique distinguished site, named because of the discovery of a 35 million year old whale skeleton in a limestone cave beneath the vineyard The aroma is of mulberry and cassis with no leafiness and an earthy, smoky Eucalypt bouquet typical of the Whalebone terroir. The flavours are rich and strong with an underlying fresh varietal complexity including the spiciness of Cabernet and the fresh leather and anise of Shiraz. The tannins are at once creamy and substantial providing a savoury and long finish.

Tapanappa is the continuation of the 40-year mission of pioneering winemaker Brian Croser and his family to make world-class wines from the most “Distinguished Sites” in South Australia. With a next generation of family closely involved, Brian continues his passion to achieve the finest expression of his choice of noble varieties in their best suited terroirs, no matter what each vintage brings. Since its foundation in 2002, Tapanappa has expanded its vineyards beyond the Piccadilly Valley as Brian adhered to the core philosophy that continues to drive his winemaking practice, defined by the concept of Distinguished Sites.
