Australia’s most populous state and the site of the country’s first vineyards, planted in 1788. The Great Dividing Range, a complex of mountain ranges running along the north-south axis of eastern Australia, separates the wetter coastal areas from the more arid interior. New South Wales is very diverse with a unique terroir. It is Australia's oldest wine region which includes the famous Hunter Valley with the Semillon grape leading the way which has been called "Australia's unique gift to the world". The aged wines develop a complex toast, vanilla and honey flavors that give it depth. But that's not all, the Hunter Valley is known for innovative technique and style.
Tyrrell's Wines, Shiraz Hunter Valley 2017
The nose displays youthful bright red fruits, which continues onto the palate. The palate is abundant with red fruits with a wonderful integration with the soft savoury tannins and the acid creating a well balanced, food friendly medium bodied Shiraz. A wine such as this calls for a classic food and wine such as roast lamb or beef. Excellent drinking upon release and will develop in complexity with short term bottle age.
