Overview & Tasting Notes

A classic 1970s style, light to medium bodied Hunter red. Delicate and spicy with great palate length and acid structure. The new oak component acts as a framework to the wine but does not overpower it, with the fruit being the primary focus of the wine.

Awards & Accolades


2009 Johnno’s Shiraz has not yet won any awards.


  • James Halliday on Mon, September 3rd 2012

    96 Points (Outstanding)

    Clear, bright crimson-purple; a bright fragrant bouquet leads into a fine, light to medium bodied palate with juicy red fruits and regional expression in the backdrop. From a single 103 year old vineyard; matured in a large 2700L French oak vat.

  • Huon Hooke on Fri, March 11th 2011

    90 Points

    Lightish color; an eccentric style, quite light-bodied and lean, with fine texture and flavour, subtle and understated, light but not skinny or short. This could really surprise with time in the cellar. Nice wine, and a traditional Hunter red.

  • Ken Gargett on Sun, April 10th 2011

    Dry herbs, morello cherry notes. Some similarity to a quality chianti, A midweight style.

  • John Lewis on Tue, May 3rd 2011

    Yet another exemplar of top-quality Hunter shiraz fruit, in this case from Johnno’s vineyard, planted in 1908 and named after fifth-generation family member, Bruce and Pauline Tyrrell’s son John. Situated below the winery, it was called Long Flat up until 2002, when Tyrrell’s sold the Long Flat brand. The 2009 Johnno’s Shiraz is a 13 per cent alcohol, Rhone-style red that opens with bright crimson colours and loganberry and potpourri scents. Lifted blackcurrant flavour leaps onto the front of the palate and rhubarb, spice and satsuma plum characters harmonise with
    restrained coconutty oak on the middle palate. Flinty tannins glide through at the finish.
