Tapanappa launched

Published:  23 July, 2008

Australian wine pioneer Brian Croser, Lynch-Bages's Jean-Michel Cazes and Bollinger's Arnould d'Hautefeuille brought the first samples from Tapanappa, their new Australian joint venture in Wrattonbully, South Australia, to London last month.

The wine, 2003 Whalebone Vineyard Cabernet/Shiraz, is a 70% Cabernet Sauvingon/20% Shiraz/10% Cabernet Franc blend and was bottled without filtration in May 2005.

Bill Page, chairman of Mentzendorff, agent for the wine, told Harpers that Mentzendorff had decided to list the wine before even tasting it, such was its faith in the trio.
