Overview & Tasting Notes

A blend of shiraz and cabernet from the Hunter Valley, with the shiraz sourced from premium vineyards on the Tyrrell's property and Moon Mountain vineyard and the cabernet coming from Pokolbin.  As always with Vat 8, we see much darker fruits and some chocolate characters in the wine, along with the extra element of spice from the higher percentage of new oak.

    Blueberries, blackberries, clove and aniseed spice, vanilla. Medium to full bodied, ripe and sweetly oaked (in comparison), grainy firm tannin, lots of mouth perfume and a cool finish. Very good. A satisfying wine.
