In the grand tradition of Tyrrell's 1858 comes the latest Shiraz in the range.

What makes this red great is the Hunter-ness. It tastes of plum and dark berries as is the Shiraz way, but there's earth and savouriness too, the style more about medium bodied flavour than trying to be all firm and boozy.

The secret is the winemaking itself. Matured in very large older oak, the style is proudly medium bodied and all the better for it.

Classic Hunter red, from an 11/10 vintage, and already drinking well.

Expert Reviews

92 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitPristine and elegant, the attractively expressed bouquet shows sweet plum, cherry and toasted nut characters with a faint trace of dark spice. The palate displays lovely weight and supple mouthfeel, flowing beautifully to a lengthy silky finish. At its best: now to 2025. AU$25.00.

How's it taste?

The nose displays youthful bright red fruit which continues onto the palate. The palate is abundant with red fruits with a wonderful integration with soft savoury tannins. The acidity creates a well-balanced, medium bodied Shiraz

How was it made?

Sourced from a small selection of the family's favourite Shiraz blocks. Fermented in traditional open vats and matured in large, old oak to make sure that oak isn't the dominant character.
