Tyrrell's Winery traces its roots to 1858 when Edward Tyrell, a British immigrant, took up a selection of 320 acres of prime Hunter Valley land - one of the last available properties in this limestone rich territory abutting the Brokenback range. The Winery was completed in 1863 and Tyrell's 1st vintage came out the following year. Tyrell's staunchly advocates sustainable farming through their established Environmental Management System which has achieved a 62% reduction in Total Greenhouse Gas Emissions since 2009. Today, Tyrell's premium vineyards extend from their historic home in Hunter Valley to other distinguished grape growing regions in Australia including Heathcote in Victoria where they have identified seven rare vineyard blocks more than 100 years old. Dark garnet in color, this intense & complex red emerges with opulent black cherry, wild berry, & vanilla spice aromas with added nuances of toast & smoke. It ias full-bodied, intense, & rich on the palate with lifted dark plum flavors & firm tannins leading to a delightful finish.
Mulberry and plum fruit characters dominate the nose, with intense, varietal characters on the palate. The result is a flavorful ripe wine with subtle structured tannin on the finish.
