2017 Tyrrell's "1867 Old Patch" Shiraz Hunter Valley Australia (Previously $150)

SKU #1428683 100 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark More depth than the four acres. This old plot was planted in 1867 and it has excelled in vintage 2017. The nose carries pristine aromas of raspberries, red plums and mulberries in gently spicy repose. The palate unfurls layers and layers of lightly spiced red- and dark-fruit flavors with tannins that seem to hold endlessly on the finish. Pitch-perfect and noble. An essay in grace and charm. Akin to grand cru Burgundy and maybe Musigny too! This really ought to be left alone for a decade Inner quote mark (10/2018)

97 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Deep, dark red colour with a tint of purple, and the bouquet is smoky, charry, coal-dusty. The palate is very elegant and smooth, fine-grained tannins and gorgeously intense, has already built much more complexity than the (as yet unreleased) 2018. Fine, savoury, elegant medium-bodied wine of great purity, line and length. (Huon Hooke, The Real Review) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

97 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Vines planted 1879, hand-picked, wild yeast-open fermented with 15% whole bunches (the remainder destemmed), 15 months in a used 2700l French cask. Bright crimson; proclaims the great vintage with its silky red and purple fruits that immediately penetrate every corner of the palate. Like Johnno's Shiraz, it is strictly medium-bodied. 290 dozen made. Inner quote mark (8/2019)
