Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz - 91 Points!
Mon, June 29th 2015
Behind every taste there is a tale.
Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
91 Points - Mint chocolate, blackberry, some pepper and pretty vanilla oak in the back. It’s big, but soft and juicy with well bedded tannin, balanced acidity and plenty of depth and flavour. Layers of plum and chocolate on the finish, but has fresh berried perkiness too. Smooth. Post purchase, I don’t think anyone will come away feeling disappointed.
John Lehman, The Daily Telegraph
Hunter Valley wine legend Bruce Tyrrell reckons his 2013 Rufus Stone Shiraz, which began being shipped out from his winery yesterday, is on par with the peerless 2002 vintage. This Heathcote beauty finds the sweet spot, comnining generous dark fruits with savoury elegance. A gold medal winner for sure and worth every cent of its $25 price tag.
