The Tyrrell’s VAT 8 Shiraz Cabernet wine is a modern style of Australian Red that also respects the tradition of using varietal blending to make a more rounded wine. This 2019 VAT 8 Shiraz Cabernet wine shows intense plum fruit sweetness from the Shiraz with dark berry and chocolate characters. The Cabernet component adds to the length & fullness of the wine. A composed and compact red blend with a soulful mid-weight to it, this excellent wine showcases a plethora of black fruit characters as well as dark & stony mineral aromas with added whiffs of dried wood & spices. The palate boasts a core of dark cherry fruit, smooth & purposeful tannins, and incredible depth & layering of flavors.
The Tyrrell’s VAT 8 Shiraz Cabernet finishes long & strong and you can choose to enjoy this now although careful cellaring of 10 to 15 years will be rewarded with futher flavor evolutions.
Tyrrell’s Winemaker’s Selection is one of the oldest and most awarded wine styles made in Australia. These wines hold true to both the Hunter style and the Tyrrell’s philosophy; timeless wines that are able to transcend all the new trends and fads over many decades.
