The Tyrrell family are proud to release their new super Shiraz, DB24. This wine represents a new approach to red winemaking at Tyrrell's. The concept for DB24 was to create a contempory Shiraz that still maintains the Tyrrell stamp of finesse and elegance.

Approximately 90% of the Shiraz grapes were sourced from McLaren Vale, and picked to have both the extract and fleshiness of fruit typical of the region. Approximately 10% of Heathcote Shiraz was blended back to the base wine to add structure and finesse. The double new oak maturation for 12 months each, is the derivation of the name DB24.

A modern style of Australian Shiraz that has harnessed the strengths of these two great wine regions. The Mclaren Vale gives the wine the extract and fleshiness for which it is renowned and the 10% Heathcote adds savoury undertones and gives the wine balance. The finish is long, and held together well by a thread of acidity.

The lunar calendar illustrated on this label has been the vigneron's timepiece: signalling when to harvest, when to cellar and when to enjoy. This wine is matured for 12 months each in double new oak and is the derivation of the name Double Barrel 24.

The concept for this wine was to create a contemporary Shiraz that still maintains the Tyrrell stamp of finesse and elegance. The grapes used for this wine come from McLaren Vale and Heathcote, two of the best Shiraz regions in the world.
