Tyrrell’s Special Release Shiraz 2014, Hunter Valley, AUD $40

Classy and composed, this is a seriously good wine that has excellent intensity and impeccable balance. It is a true medium-bodied style with an engaging, quiet confidence. The fruit flavours are mainly in the red sphere with a hint of dark chocolate and boysenberry adding richness. The oak, acidity and tannin are all perfectly integrated. A stellar example of Hunter shiraz. (Screwcap)
