James Halliday

..this is a highly spicy and perfumed bouquet, with pepper, redcurrant and cranberry; light-bodied, with zesty acidity and a strong undergrowth bramble element; a fresh and lively young wine, best enjoyed in this manner.

Gary Walsh

Pepper, some slight green herbal notes… along with bramble and red fruits and a touch of sulphide/earth complexity. It’s light to medium bodied, fresh and tangy, red fruited, almost crisp….but lively, long and good to drink. Time will not be its enemy. Regional and true.

Hunter Heroes Brokenback Shiraz shows aromas of red berry fruits with a very subtle lift of French oak. The palate has sweet fruit balanced by soft acid and tannin, resulting in a classic Hunter Shiraz. An ideal wine to accompany rich roasts of lamb or beef!

It’s a paradox of the hot Hunter Valley that it makes such idiosyncratic, medium-bodied, elegant reds, reminiscent of wine from a cooler climate. And in 2011, a cool and late season, the wines I’ve tasted to date are outstanding. Tyrrell’s made several shirazes in the vintage, and this, its lowest priced product, delivers huge value for money. It’s sourced from 10–40 year old vines in the vicinity of the Brokenback Range. Maturation in older oak barrels means mellowness, but no discernible oak flavour – allowing pure fruit flavour to sweeten the taut, medium-bodied palate.

Hunter tradition at a great price. Raspberry, plum, pepper, earth and leathery aromas lead through an inviting, middleweight palate. It's soft and easy, with fine tannins in perfect balance and a fragrant aftertaste.
