About The Wine

This wine is ridiculous value from the Tyrrell family.

The fruit for this pitch-perfect Hunter Valley Shiraz comes from an assorted selection of their famous old vineyards. The Tyrrell's philosohpy is to let the fruit shine rather than shroud it in oak. It's a principal which has seen them become arguably the benchmark producer of Shiraz in the modern Hunter Valley.

This wine spends time in huge 2700L oak vats before release. This gentle oak handling just highlights the outstanding fruit character in 2017.

For the price, Hunter Valley Shiraz just doesn't get any better. It's wines like this that you'll marvel at in a decade when you remember what you paid for it.

About Tyrrell's

Tyrrell's is one of Australia's oldest and most prestigious family-owned wineries.

With a rich, decorated history stretching back to 1858, the Tyrrell family are custodians of some of the finest (and oldest) vineyards in the Hunter Valley, and indeed, the world.

Their top releases of Shiraz, Semillon, and Chardonnay are highly collectable and considered by many as some of the truest regional examples of these varieties. 

As the talented Chris Tyrrell takes his place in the cellar, just as four generations of Tyrrell men have before him, this family institution is set to remain one of the most important bastions of quality Australian wine for many years to come.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Sourced from a small selection of our favourite shiraz blocks, the grapes were both hand and machine picked before fermentation in the traditional open top vats. The wine was then matured in older, large format French oak casks. These 2,700 litre casks highlight the fruit purity whilst making sure that oak isn’t the dominant character.

Halliday Wine Companion

"A brother to the '18 Hunter Valley Semillon, crushed and destemmed, open-fermented, pressed to large-format used casks. This is a rich yet tightly managed wine, placing all the emphasis on fruit, precisely that which should be done, especially in a year such as this. If you buy it now - and you should - put not less than 50% in the cellar, and have a glass on me, recalling it only cost $25. Gold medal Hunter Valley Wine Show." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Good

I liked this wine: soft palate, a bit of length, some subtle flavours in there, alcohol level acceptable. Hard to get Hunter wines in Victoria. Decades ago I used to get Tyrells Vat wines but can't afford them now.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
