2013 Tyrrell's Hunter Valley Shiraz

Winemaker's Notes

Sourced from a selection of premium Shiraz vineyards the nose displays youthful bright fruit, which continues to the palate. A modern medium bodied red wine that lingers on the finish.

A rich, classic wine of this nature is best served with rich, classic food accompaniments including roasted meats such as lamb or beef. Excellent drinking upon release and will develop in complexity with short term bottle age.

The ‘baby brother’ to our famous Vat 9 Shiraz, our Hunter Valley Shiraz is made to the same high standards that our flagship Shiraz receives.

The growing season was uninterrupted with dry conditions into the new year which resulted in smaller crop levels. The week before harvest we had rain followed by dry weather and wind. These are favourable weather conditions so all of the fruit was in pristine condition and picking took place 10 days earlier than 2012.

Sourced from a small selection of our favourite Shiraz blocks, the grapes were both hand and machine picked before fermentation in the traditional 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.
