Expert Reviews

94 Points. Campbell Mattinson - Wine Front. 20 March 2008

Tyrrell’s Double Barrel Shiraz spends 12 months in new oak before being decanted into a fresh set of new barrels for a further 12 months. It’s double-barrelled winemaking at its modern old-fashioned best (yes, modern old-fashioned).

It tastes – of course – overwhelmingly of custardy, chocolaty, honeyed oak, with syrupy black fruit flavour jetting away in the background. It is monumentally smooth and rich, yet it has just started to soften and evolve – sings of leatheriness have just started to appear. There’s also quite a bit of acidity. This wine is either disgusting or incredibly yum, depending on your take.

90 Points. James Halliday - Wine Companion. 1 July 2008

Certainly shows a year in barrel (used?) and then another year in new oak; the winemakers thought the fruit justified the expense; I am not convinced.
