Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz

by John Fordham, Sunday Telegraph on

Hunter Valley headquartered winery Tyrrell’s decision to source shiraz from Victoria’s Heathcote region two decades ago has been vindicated many times over. This full-flavoured shiraz features palate-gripping intensity, long length, balance, elegance, and loads of peppery and spicy characters.

Vat 47 Hunter Chardonnay

by Nick Stock, www.jamessuckling.com on

93 Points - Ripe tropical and stone fruits here, this has a wealth of acid-fuelled power. Oak is restrained. There’s an almost semillon-like feel to the palate. Drink now to 2025+. Screw cap.

by Gary Walsh, Wine Front on

96 Points - Struck match, cashew and almond, lime and peach. Medium bodied, mouth-filling palate, crystal clear limey acidity, power and style, but not heavy. Silky feel. Crisp flinty finish, that’s so pure and long. It’s all here. Best young Vat 47 I can remember.

5 stars out of 5 - Power with restraint. Classy French oak wafts from the glass but doesn’t dominate. The palate is tight, long and intense. 30% new French oak. 100% basket pressed.
This wine is a study in structure and restraint – so far removed from Hunter chardonnays of even a decade ago. Barrel work plays a key part in the textural side of this wine, but, even though French oak aroma and flavour plays a part, it doesn’t assert itself. The wine is driven by a core of intense fruit backed by acidity.
