Tyrrell’s Vat 9 Hunter Shiraz 2000

91+ points

Hunter Valley,Australia. 13%

Seems odd to put a plus sign (for extra potential) on a wine already almost 14 years old but this has a way to go. Aged complexity is emerging, but there is plenty of fruit sweetness, almost too much. Otherwise it has nice restraint.

Lovely aromas. Inviting. Varietal. Not masked by oak.
