Tyrrell’s Lunatiq Heathcote Shiraz
There is one famous family name in the region where the great traditions of the Hunter Valley are joined by a restless spirit of wine innovation. That name is Tyrrell’s.Deep garnet red in colour, the aromas are dark and brooding with hints of chocolate and plum lifted by cinnamon spiced French oak. All those dark fruit flavours are framed on the palate by rich layered fruit tannins, tight powdery fine grained oak and the classic mineral texture you get from great Heathcote wines.
Tyrrell’s Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz
TASTING NOTES The deep rich colour of this wine indicates its intensity. The nose is full of ripe plum and dark cherries with a hint of white pepper and sweet vanillin. The flavours carry onto the palate which is full of big soft fruit, but balanced by an elegant oak structure and natural acid, resulting in a rich wine with a complex and fresh structure.
Tyrrell’s Single Vineyard HVD Semillon
The vines in the HVD vineyard were planted in 1908 and form the “Sign Post Block”. The same soil, same rainfall and same temperatures of a single vineyard produce a consistency of flavour throughout the wine. Single Vineyard wines are only made in years when nature contrives to produce fruit of such outstanding quality that their winemakers will set parcels aside to be separately bottled.Tasting Notes Colour- Bright yellow with tinge of green. Nose- Classic HVD Semillon showing lifted white flower and citrus aromatics. Palate- Good length of fruit and a great balance with it’s clean, soft acid structure.
Tyrrell’s Single Vineyard Stevens Shiraz
Black cherry, raspberry and fresh spicy flavours dominate the palate with a vibrant, fresh acidity that make this wine a wonderful example of the modern, balanced style of Hunter Valley shiraz.
Tyrrell’s Vat 1 Hunter Semillon
Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon is one of Australia's great white wines and has the capacity to age superbly in the bottle. This release continues the recent immaculate line up of Vat 1s that show classic citrus floral and honey aromas. The palate is dry, yet full-flavoured with lovely crisp acidity. Still only a relative baby in terms of Vat 1s longevity, this bottle will reward you for decades to come.
Tyrrell’s Vat 47 Hunter Chardonnay
What a magnificent wine! A pioneer in the modern Australian Chardonnay stakes, the Vat 47 from the Hunter Valley has a silky bouquet of melon stone fruit and creamy oak that is followed by a palate of extraordinary balance and length. An absolute classic and will only get better with some medium term ageing.
Tyrrell’s Vat 8 Hunter Shiraz Cabernet
A modern style of Australian red that also respects the tradition of using varietal blending to make a more rounded wine. The wine shows intense plum fruit sweetness from the Shiraz with dark berry and chocolate characters. The Cabernet component adds to the length and fullness of the wine.
Tyrrell’s Vat 9 Hunter Shiraz
Always a regional benchmark of the medium bodied, long-lived style, Vat 9 in 2011 shows the extra fruit intensity of the good season. It's sourced from old vines (average age 50 years) grown in the red volcanic soils of the Weinkeller and Short Flat vineyards on Tyrrell's Ashmans property. Made from hand-picked fruit, fermented in open vats and matured in large format French-oak casks (2700-litre), the wine reveals the delicious flavour of outstanding fruit, gently handled. Maturation in oak, apart from polishing the silky tannins, gave a liveliness and aromatic lift that completes a harmonious, gentle, sensuous wine. Put simply a Hunter classic!
The name Volshenaya is derived from 'Volshebnaya' which means magic. The label was designed as an abstract way to depict water and magic. Vodka comes in many flavoured varieties and in it's original form, is used in such cocktails as the screwdriver and bloody mary.
