A very fine Vat 9. One for the ages
About The Wine
The Vat 9 Shiraz is one of the benchmark wines of the Hunter Valley.
A composite blend of some of the Tyrrell family's oldest and best vineyards, the Vat 9 is the wine that paints the fullest picture of the vintage.
It's aged in large format barrels (2700 litres) which gives a gentle seasoning to the fruit. However, Vat 9 is always first and foremost about fruit quality and showcasing the beauty of Hunter Valley Shiraz.
It is one of the most collected wines in the country, Vat 9 is something for a special occasion now or in several decades time.
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.
