Tyrrell's Double Barrel 24 Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Serious stuff indeed; plenty of toasty oak, and the core of fruit is dark and brooding, but not at all heavy; chewy and thick on the palate, with terrific length, and the many layers of the wine to open on the palate over a long period of time.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Certainly shows a year in barrel (used?) and then another year in new oak; the winemakers thought the fruit justified the expense; I am not convinced.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
It's not entirely clear why this wine was selected for double oaking, 12 months in new oak, then another 12 months in another set of new oak barrels; mixture of black fruits, chocolate and vanilla, with soft tannins and lots of oak.
