Tyrrell’s Vat 8 Shiraz Cabernet 2019, Hunter Valley, NSW

by | May 26, 2023

Pungent leafy, herbal and cedar notes with redcurrant, cranberries and a hints of pencil shavings. Silky front palate with licorice, ripe, slightly raisined, red fruits. Smooth velvet tannins travel on through a long herbal finish. More Bordeaux that Rhone in character. Enjoyable ride.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
