Vat 9 is a blend of the best of Tyrell's old blocks that sit on the strip of red soil that runs through the winery.
The 2018 vintage, one of the earliest Shiraz harvests seen, was simply spectacular for Shiraz in the Hunter Valley. Warm, dry conditions kept cropping levels down, producing wines of great concentration and length of flavour. Intense purple in colour, the wine displays a pretty, red-berry nose with hints of subtle oak and lifted spice. The medium-bodied palate shows soft, sweet fruits and more of that subtle oak, all complemented by a fine, clean acid structure and long tannins. This is a classic Vat 9 that is destined to have a long life in the cellar.
Robust, mature & biscuity style of Champagne from a small family-owned company whose insistence on the very highest level of quality has afforded them an international reputation.
1/3 Pinot Noir, 1/3 Pinot Meunier, 1/3 Chardonnay, with 25% aged in barrel.
This rich and complex wine emphasises the smoky notes and dark fruits that lead you in it as soon as you open the bottle. The moderate acidity and well inegrated tannins shows a freshness that belies its age with real elegance.Caves Sao Joao
