About The Wine
The Vat 8 Shiraz Cabernet is a Hunter Valley classic that has pride of place in many great cellars across the country.
It marries Shiraz and Cabernet from some of the family's finest vineyards into a richer, darker expression of the region.
It's aged in smaller (225L) barrels and built to mature gracefully in the cellar.
This is a uniquely Australian blend from one of the most historic and iconic winemaking families in the country. A safer bet for the cellar, you'll hardly see from the Hunter Valley.
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.
