    Here’s an archetypal, 13 per cent alcohol Hunter shiraz from the fine 2011 vintage. It is medium-bodied and ruby red, with gamey scents. Spiced blackcurrant flavour zings on to the front of the palate and the middle palate brings forwards Maraschino cherry, peppermint, herb and licorice fruit characters and subtle savoury oak. Dusty tannins feature at the finish. It is made from grapes grown on Neil Stevens’s Old Hillside vineyard, regarded by Tyrrell’s managing direct Bruce Tyrrell as one of the best shiraz sites in the Hunter Valley. DRINK WITH: duck a l’orange

    This is a single vineyard wine from Tyrrell’s’ Hunter Valley heartland and it sits mid-range in their substantial red wine portfolio. It’s typical Hunter - medium weight, nothing too big, easy drinking but with enough interest on the palate to keep you coming back for more. Ripe, mixed berry fruit holds centre stage and does it with some aplomb. Good drinking.

    4 stars

    Stevens Shiraz shows a family resemblance to Vat 9, but in a distinctly brawnier style. It offers the rich, juicy fruit flavours of the good season, with an underlying earthiness and savouriness, backed by solid, but soft, tannins. The grapes come from the Stevens family vineyard in Pokolbin, the traditional heart of the lower Hunter region. Tyrrell’s says the oldest vines on the block were planted in 1867 and “may be the oldest vines still in production in the Hunter Valley”.
