In 2000 Domaines Tatiarra was established by Nick Chlebnikowski & Bill Spring, two highly motivated and creative individuals with a passion to create a benchmark Australian Shiraz. Sadly, both of these founding members are no longer with us. However, there remains a driving force amongst the Tatiarra shareholders to continue what they started.2008 will be remembered as the vintage that Tatiarra's reputation was put at stake. From the outset, it was always going to be one of the most challenging years the company had faced - an ongoing drought, water shortages and heatwaves all took a toll. Followers of Tatiarra's wines will know that they're subject to some of the most rigorous selection processes in Australia. Barrels which don't perform are separated and sold off under a sub-label (Tatiarra 'Culled Barrel'). 2008 resulted in the biggest cuts yet with 1300 cases 'rejected' from the flagship wines and a further 1400 cases not even deemed suitable for Culled Barrel. Collector's should also note that no 2008 Trademark Shiraz was produced. In total, 70% of the 2008 Tatiarra vintage has been declassified. If this sounds extraordinary, it is. In America, John Rimmerman of Garagiste in Seattle recently summed up the guts of the operation, stating "Tatiarra is in a different category than 99% of all other Australian wineries and they should be recognized for attempting to do something that uses their foresight as a roadmap instead of following the style of others." He adds "This is not a copycat winery – they leave those chasing their wake with the unenviable task of catching up".
