Overview & Tasting Notes

The deep rich colour of this wine indicates its intensity. The nose is full of ripe plum and dark cherries with a hint of white pepper and sweet vanillin. The flavours carry onto the palate which is full of big soft fruit, but balanced by an elegant oak structure and natural acid, resulting in a rich wine with a complex and fresh structure.

Accolades

  • Winewise on

    This is an attractive mouthfilling shiraz with spicy notes and a hint of peppermint. Good short term drinking.

  • Illawarra Mercury on Mon, June 2nd 2014

    The third wine under Tyrrell’s Rufus Stone label came about through an inspired decision in 1994 by head honcho Bruce Tyrrell to buy an old farm at Heathcote which was transformed into a shiraz vineyard. It’s a high quality red, polished and poised with lashings of plum and black fruit, spice and peppery characters, chocolate and juicy tannins.
