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.
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.
