Tyrrells Old Winery Shiraz
Deep red in colour with a bright purple rim. A smooth, soft and spicy red wine with aromas of dark ripe fruit and subtle vanilla oak. The palate is full of rich Shiraz flavours and is supported by firm tannins which provide good length and complexity.
Australia's most popular grape varietal, Shiraz is full-bodied with high alcohol, and vibrant berry and plum on both the nose and palate. Australia's hot summers and cooler winters impart a complexity and structure that collects well and is a worldwide favorite.
The grapes are sourced from trusted regional and local growers with the winemaking being completed at our Hunter Valley winery in a combination of open top fermenters and stainless steel potter tanks.
Food Suggestions: An ideal accompaniment to traditional red meat dishes, tomato based pastas and matured cheeses.
Origin: Hunter Valley, Australia
Ageing: Maturation for the wine took place in a mixture of French and American oak barrels.
