(2013 Vintage) Tyrrells 2013 Lost Block Shiraz has Viognier added to create a point of difference from traditional Shiraz styles. The aroma is of ripe cooked plums and elegant peppery spice which is lifted by the floral perfume of the Viognier. The flavours are reminiscent of fresh black cherries mixed with fine dark chocolate. The result is a soft, fresh, drinkable Shiraz with a clean morish finish.

(2013 Vintage) Rich and ripe cooked plum and peppery spice aromatics. On the palate, flavours are reminiscent of fresh blackb cherries, mixed with fine dark chocolate. Rounded Tannins and a clean morish finish.

(2013 Vintage) I really like the quirky labels on the mid-range Lost Block range that reflects Tyrrell’s willingness to operate well beyond its Hunter Valley base. Heathcote is a highly regard red region in central Victoria and this early-drinking wine has soft tannins and rich, velvety fruit flavours

(2013 Vintage) Tyrell’s Lost Block Range was born when an impending storm forced the winemaking crew to abandon a prized block of Hunter semillon to pick less storm resilient grapes. Picked days later, the ‘lost block’ produced wines were found to have such impressive character that it was decided it should receive a label of its own. The 2013 Lost Block Shiraz, dark and vibrant in hue, was sourced from the Heathcote Vineyard and offers rich aromas of ripe cooked plums and elegant peppery spice. On the palate, flavours are reminiscent of fresh black cherries mixed with fine dark chocolate. A rounded tannin structure and clean morish finish.
