About

About The Wine

This Shiraz is made from some very fine parcels of fruit from some of the Tyrrell family's most important vineyards.

Portions of fruit Weinkeller vineyard (a contributor to the iconic Vat 9 Shiraz) and also some fruit from younger vines planted just above the mythical Old Patch Shiraz vineyard brought together from the exemplary 2017 vintage. For fans of this iconic Australian wine dynasty, or just Hunter Shiraz enthusiests in general, this is a sensational value wine.

With 93 points from Gary Walsh, there just aren't many better reds from the region that you will see at this price.

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

Tyrrell’s Special Release is reserved for unique parcels of fruit that in a particular vintage have those qualities and point of difference to warrant being bottled and released on their own.

The vineyard blocks used from this are predominately from our Weinkeller vineyard, which in many years previously had gone into the Vat 9 blend. A tiny amount of Stevens Shiraz was used to top up the blend. Matured in mostly older large French Oak casks (2700L) along with some 4th use puncheons (500L).

Blend : Shiraz (100%)
ABV : 13.50%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2030
Bottle Size : 750ml

The Wine Front

"Boysenberry, earthy / new leather, touch of spice. Soft, juicy boysenberry and some red fruits, brown spices, tannin well settled into the wine, balanced acidity, bright berry finish of clean length. Lovely wine that’s drinking well now, though no hurry." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
