Dutschke Bourbon Barrel 10 Year Old Tawny

$43.95

Dutschke Bourbon Barrel 10 Year Old Tawny

I have great memories of many years ago filling Tawny into used
whiskey barrels that had been imported straight from distilleries in
the USA. As the Tawny went in, wonderfully rich whiskey aromas
filled the air and when revisiting these barrels some time later, the
old Tawny inside showed the distinct flavours of the spirit that had
originally been in those casks. Added to that were the typical,
beautifully aged rancio Tawny characters you’d expect to taste.
Some years ago we decided to relive this memory by importing a
number of used Bourbon barrels from Kentucky, USA, and filling
these with a special Tawny. These barrels have made a home in
our dusty fortified shed and are maturing gracefully.
Here’s the result!

Winemaker Wayne Dutschke

Dutschke Wines is a family-owned boutique producer of classic Barossa red wines and fortifieds.

Wayne Dutschke

Wayne started making wine in 1979 in Australia as well as knocking out a few vintages in Spain and California. In 1990, Wayne formed his own brand called WillowBend producing a blend of Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet. Interest from the United States in 1998 brought about a name change to Dutschke Wines as well as a few new brands – GHR Neighbours Shiraz, St. Jakobi Shiraz and the reserve wine Oscar Semmler Shiraz.

Since their first crush in 1990, Dutschke Wines has strived to make wines of the highest quality that show Wayne’s expression of the characteristics of that precious patch of dirt from a precious corner of the Barossa Valley.
