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.
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.
