Bright crimson; aromas of spice and dark chocolate speak of the regions involved (Heathcote/McLarenVale); a well-balanced medium-bodied palate with plenty of black and red fruits; good finish.Australian Wine Companion 2011 2010
Made on the fine established tradition of multi-regional blending, with Heathcote stepping in where the Hunter once might have stood. This is mid-purple in the glass and smells of red berries, redcurrant and light spice. The palate is smooth and easy, light on tannin, delivering bright berry flavour.The Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2010 2009
Tyrrell's is based in the Hunter Valley, but for some time it has had vineyard interests in both Heathcote, Victoria, and McLaren Vale, . This is the only Tyrrell's red to combine grapes from all three regions. The funny thing is that you can taste, clearly, all three regions in it. It has the Hunter's earthiness, McLaren Vale's chocolatey oomph and Heathcote's spicy, clovey, minty drive. It's a rather nice wine - not overly substantial but good to drink and with the structure to surprise given a rest in the cellar.The Big Red Wine Book 2009/10 2009
medium-bodied palate, joined by spice/savoury nuances on the finish. Top value; ready to roll.Australian Wine Companion 2010 2009
Some minty edges to the fruit, but is firm and has some length.Australian Wine Companion 2006 2005
A well made, balanced and flavoursome shiraz whose dusty expression of peppery red berry and plum-like fruit is backed by meaty, earthy undertones and light vanilla oak. There's d hint of leathery development, but the tight-knit and finely balanced palate delivers lively berry/plum flavours.Australian Wine Annual 2006 2005
A clean, attractive array of red cherry/raspberry fruit; minimal tannins and oak. A three-State blend.Australian Wine Companion 2005 2004
Early-drinking shiraz, with a spicy, leathery and lightly oaked aroma of red plums and berries. Smooth and soft, revealing a creamy expression of plums, prunes and redcurrants, it finishes with restrained tannins, but a little sappy and green-edged.Australian Wine Annual 2005 2004
The bouquet is quite complex, with dark berry fruit, chocolate and earth; the light- to medium-bodied palate has good feel and texture, with nice acidity and fine tanninsAustralian Wine Companion 2001 2001
