Dark red and deep purple in colour, an indication of the intensity of this wine and a signature of Central Victorian Shiraz.

The nose shows white pepper with ripe berries and a subtle lift of oak.

Flavours on the palate are balanced showing fruit richness, savoury undertones with an elegant and complex structure.

The finish is long and tightly held together by the thread of acidity, so important to the wines of this region.

This style of wine, although enjoyable now, will display the benefits of cellaring in years to come.

The Rufus Stone marks the accidental killing of King William Rufus by Sir Walter Tyrell (yes, one 'r' in those days) in 1100 and this historic association has been utilized for Tyrrell's top, non-Hunter regional red wine range.

The grapes used for these wines come from Heathcote, McLaren Vale and the Limestone Coast regions in Australia. These wines allow the winemakers to use red wine styles and oak maturation techniques not normally used for traditional Hunter Valley Reds.
