The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux.

Tyrrells Lunatiq Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Heathcote Victoria
Tyrrell made a major contribution to the development of Heathcote as a world class winegrowing region. One of the earliest pioneers, they sowed the seeds and established the vines which launched the second gold rush into Heathcote Shiraz. Lunatiq is minimally handled to encourage the eloquence of terroir to speak, dark chocolate tannins support a mouthfilling palate of red currant flavours and piquant spice, followed by a lingering, well balanced finish, a titillatingly enigmatic fragrant mineral lift.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$479.00
Sourced from a block of superb vines planted to the highly prized, deep red Cambrian soils on the eastern slope of Mount Carmel range, thirty kilometres north of Heathcote township. The oldest blocks are picked and transported back to Hunter Valley for vinification. Three days of cold soak are followed by a fortnight of open ferments at 25°C, gently pumped over to maximize flavour and colour without over extraction of tannin. Batches are filled to a selection of high quality, tight grain French oak barriques for completion of malolactic and a year's maturation, the best barrels are assembled into the finished wine.
Bright red/ purple in colour. A great lift of mulberry, plum fruit and brooding, spicy chocolate oak. The palate is rich and robust, dark plum and currant fruit flavours are framed and enhanced by layers of soft fruit tannin, a tight mineral texture whilst maintaining the finesse and elegance which defines Heathcote Shiraz.
