Tyrrell’s Wines Vat 9 Hunter Shiraz 1998 & 1991

91 & 92 points

Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia. 13.5% & 12.4%

Both flavoursome Shiraz unadorned with new oak flavours. Both mid-weight although the 98 is darker, more dense and ripe. The 91 is all the more fascinating for its low alcohol. A lovely complete wine. A good bottle.

Clean modern wines but characterful reflections of terroir (without any “sweaty saddle”). Ahead of their time.
