Lunatiq Heathcote Shiraz

A rich shiraz with a complex and fresh structure. Deep garnet red in colour, the aromas are dark and brooding with hints of chocolate and plum lifted by cinnamon spiced French oak. All those dark fruit flavours are framed on the palate by rich layered fruit tannins, tight powdery fine grained oak and the classic mineral texture you get from great Heathcote wines. Starting to hit its straps now and will reward careful cellaring.

Peter Hay

While the Tyrrells brand is wedged firmly in the Hunter Valley of NSW, like any progressive brand, it realised the Hunter can attract only so much of a following, with most of it in its home state. So what’s the next best thing, buy a patch of land in one of Australia’s growing regions, Heathcote in Victoria. Nestled between the Goulburn valley and Bendigo, it offers Shiraz a temperate climate with generous rainfall, and therefore produces wines that are more elegant and restrained than the Hunter Valley has to offer. This is a good example.

Drinks Trade Magazine

(2013 Vintage) A ripe and fruit driven nose. The palate is well balanced with flavours of spice, mocha, vanilla and oak, plus long length and fine, firm tannins.

James Halliday (2015 Australian Wine Companion)

(2012 Vintage) 94 Points - Light to medium purple-crimson; a fresh and juicy blend of red, blue and black fruits provide a fragrant bouquet and a supple, fresh light to medium-bodied palate with good line and length.

Tyson Stelzer

(2012 Vintage) 95 points - Classic Heathcote shiraz, in the most elegant guise. Tyrrell’s vineyard is now twenty years old, and in 2012 it put forth lovely purity and focus of black plum and blackberry fruit. Refined tannins, vibrant acid focus and supportive dark chocolate French oak (30% new) unite to build finely textured structure, seamless line and lingering persistence.
