TYRRELL'S SHIRAZ 2018

Review and Tasting Notes

The grapes were both hand and machine picked before fermentation in the open top vats. The wine was then matured in older, large format French oak casks. These 2,700 litre casks highlight the fruit purity whilst making sure that oak isn’t the dominant character.

Vibrant purple colour, with a lifted nose showing red fruits and some spice. The palate is lively and fresh showing red fruits and a soft, savoury tannins with fresh acidity. A wonderful example of the modern, medium bodied Hunter Valley Shiraz.

This wine recently received 96 points from the 2020 James Halliday Wine Companion.
