Tyrrells - Hunter Heroes Brokeback Shiraz 2011Australian Red Wine
Available 11th May 2017
A continuation of the fabulous run of Brokenback vintages since 2006. The 2009 vintage shows aromas of red berry fruits with only a very subtle lift of French oak. These characters then flow seamlessly onto the palate, with plush, sweet fruit balanced by soft acid and tannin, resulting in a classic Hunter shiraz.
Fruit was harvested in early February and fermented in hand plunged open vats. The wine was then matured primarily in 'large' French oak casks for eighteen months respecting tradition and the fruit quality, with only 10% receiving small oak maturation.
A rich, classic wine of this nature is best served with rich, classic food accompaniments including roasted meats such as lamb or beef.
