Tyrrell’s Vat 8 Shiraz Cabernet 2014

Short Flat, Weinkeller, selected for style and richness of Vat 8 style. Western facing sites that ripen earlier, smaller berries, more tannin. Sees a bit of barrique.


Red and black fruits, choc-licorice, but fresh, some vanilla cream. Medium bodied, smooth operator, silky tannin, polished with perfect ripeness and a ribbon of red fruit flowing into the distance. Shows some oak and offers a more seductive, come-hither style for Tyrrells, though by the standards of many other wineries in the region, it’s subdued and stylish. This is a beautiful Vat 8 that will wow and woo a great many.
