Warm your cockles by diving into some fantastic rich, fruity and spicy Australian shiraz wines
Tyrrell’s Hunter Valley Shiraz
This is a classic medium-bodied Hunter Valley shiraz that’s created from a selection of Tyrrell’s favourite shiraz vine blocks. Matured in French oak barrels, the wine has notes of ripe, sweet red and black berries cut through by savoury pepper and charcuterie flavours, finishing with a dose of savoury “crunchy” tannins, (RRP $24.99).
Tyrrell’s Old Winery Shiraz
This is a more affordable shiraz which nevertheless promises a quality drop with aromas of dark ripe fruit and subtle vanillin oak, and rich shiraz flavours with lasting complexity. A smooth, soft and deliciously spicy red wine, ($16.99).
Pair either of these wines with chargrilled steak, pan seared venison, red meat and tomato based pastas and matured cheeses.
Tyrrell’s Wines was established in 1858 and is one of Australia’s oldest wine brands. Still owned by the same founding family, Tyrrell’s has vineyards located across South East Australia in the country’s most highly regarded wine growing regions – the Hunter Valley in NSW and Victoria. Over the decades Tyrrell’s wines have been awarded over 5,000 trophies and medals, and in 2010 it was named “Winery of the Year” in the influential Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion.
