Overview

Vineyard

This wine is a blend of premium Hunter Valley shiraz and cabernet grapes grown on and around the Tyrrell Ashmans property.

Vintage Conditions

The 2017 Shiraz Cabernet vintage was one of the best in recent memory and has produced wines of the highest quality. Solid rains in Winter and Spring meant the vines had constant access to water and the warmer weather in the new year meant all of the fruit was in near perfect condition and ripeness when it was harvested.

Winemaker’s Notes

After fermentation in the traditional open vats, both parcels were matured separately before blending in December 2017. The blended wine then finished it’s maturation in French oak barriques until bottling in May 2018.

Winery Tasting Notes

A modern style of Australian red that also respects the tradition of 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 5% cabernet component adds to the length and fullness of the wine.
