The 2019 Tyrrell’s Hunter Valley Shiraz wine has a vibrant purple colour, with a lifted nose showing bright red fruits and confectionary spice. This Australian Shiraz wine has a medium bodied with good depth of flavour yet still lively and fresh. Soft, savoury tannins and a crunchy acidity adds to the wines complexity. This Tyrrell’s Hunter Valley Shiraz is a wonderful example of the modern, medium bodied Hunter Valley Shiraz wine.
The Hunter Valley Shiraz was made from grapes grown on some of the top blocks on the Tyrrell’s estate and surrounding area, which have an average vine age of 40 years and are mostly dry grown. The 2019 vintage was the third great vintage in a row for the Hunter Valley, the product of another hot, dry summer. The Hunter Valley range is quintessential Tyrrell’s and quintessential Hunter. This range showcases the Hunter’s tried-and-tested varieties: Semillon, Shiraz and Chardonnay. All of the wines are made to the same high standards and in the same style as our flagship Winemaker’s Selection Vat 1 Semillon, Vat 47 Chardonnay and Vat 9 Shiraz.
