Established in 1858 by English immigrant Edward Tyrrell, Tyrrell’s Wines is one of Australia’s pre-eminent family owned wine companies with vineyards extending from their historic home in the Hunter Valley to the Limestone Coast (SA) and Heathcote (VIC). Headed up by fourth generation family member Bruce Tyrrell, Tyrrell’s is home to some of Australia’s most awarded wines including the iconic Vat 1 Semillon. Since 1971, Tyrrell’s has been awarded over 5,000 trophies and medals and in 2010 was named “Winery of the Year” in James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion. With the fifth generation, Chris, Jane and John, involved in the business, Tyrrell’s will continue to remain family owned with the simple philosophy of producing high quality wine that people love to drink.
Pretty like a new handbag with cosmetics, boysenberry pie, touch of spice, vanilla oak and earth. Medium bodied, supple and succulent, bright fruit in the forest berry department, soft fine milk powder tannin caresses the mouth, and pulls a sure grip on the finish. Acidity sits perfectly. There’s a greater level of purity and finesse in these 2017 releases from Tyrrell’s, and the winemaking is sensitive and deft. What a delight. Classic Hunter Shiraz here.

Trophy - 'The Silver Bullet' - Hunter Valley Wine Show 2019
A radically different bouquet with aromas of black fruits, black olive, French oak and earth leads into a vibrant dark berry palate. A truly fascinating wine, at the moment polarising opinions. It does have one more trick up its sleeve: a mouthwatering, sweet and sour (in the best sense) finish and aftertaste.
