Cracka Review

Born out of a partnership between Cracka Wines and Tyrrells, this wine represents everything great about Hunter Shiraz. From the start, this fits perfectly into the famously medium-bodied regional style. Weighing in at just 13.5% alcohol, it is a wine of balance rather than all-out bruising weight and booze, and proudly unlike your typical South Australian Shiraz.

Sourced from a selection of Tyrrell's favourite blocks, this was fermented in traditional open top vats and matured in large, mature oak casks to help enhance the fruit purity. That's resulted in a beautifully even, wonderfully vibrant wine with abundant red fruits and fine-grained, earthy tannins.

For anyone who can appreciate timeless Australian wines, then this Shiraz should be on your must-buy list.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine was born from the partnership between Cracka Wines and Tyrrell's, both of whom share a passion for delivering the best possible value with the highest possible quality. It is an impeccable union of tradition, innovation, craftsmanship, history and region.

This wine was sourced from a small selection of our favourite Shiraz blocks. Fermented in the traditional open top vats, the wine was then matured in older large format casks to highlight the fruit purity whilst making sure that oak is not the dominant character. 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, and the acid creating a well balanced, medium bodied Shiraz.

Alc/vol: 13.0%
