Tyrrell’s 4 Acres Shiraz 2004

90 points

Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia. 12.6%

It’s marvelous that wines like this are being made in Australia. Fantastic that they are still being made. What would the Wine Spectator or Parker make of such a wine which is the total antithesis of the syrupy blockbusters they love.

Gorgeous aromas which are sort of Rhone like but also distinctly Hunter leather. This is a gentle fragrant wine with considerable acid.

This is really going to benefit from age. Drink 2011-2024.

Matured in a single large 2600 litre French oak cask. From vines planted in 1879.
