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.

And in the easy years, that's what happens - everyone makes good wine and everyone's picking around the same time. But it's the difficult years – and in the Valley here, we still get three or four difficult years in every ten – they're the years where you make the statement on your skills and your expertise.
