Accolades

  • Mike Frost on Fri, April 26th 2013

    The Hunter’s Tyrrell family has headed west to produce this Margaret River red that shows blackcurrant and plum fruit, mint and leafy characters on the nose and palate and a soft tannin finish. It’d go well over the next year of two with grilled lamb cutlets or lamb and rosemary sausages.

  • James Halliday Wine Companion on Fri, May 3rd 2013

    It might be a long way from Margaret River, but that hasn’t stopped Hunter Valley winery Tyrrell’s from releasing two wines from the west cost in the new Echo Beach range. Fittingly, the wines showcase Margaret River’s vinuous strengths, with a Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2012 and a Cabernet Merlot 2011.

  • John Lewis on Thu, April 11th 2013

    4 1/2 glasses

    The 14 per cent alcohol cabernet sauvignon-merlot blend is brick red with purple tints and has ripe plum aromas. Spicy blackcurrant flavour unfolds on the front of the palate and peppermint, mineral, mulberry and toasty oak character chime in on the middle palate. The finish brings in earthy tannins.

  • National Liquor News on Fri, May 3rd 2013

    Soft and silky with aromas of blackcurrant, mulberry, mint cassis and spice.

  • Tony Keys on Fri, May 24th 2013

    It’s the same soft fruity style of construction as the Langhorne Creek shiraz. There is a similarity yet the grape varieties are different and the regions thousands of kilometers apart.
