Rufus Stone Tyrell's Shiraz 2010
Natalie's tasting note, score, food pairings and recipes for this wine
Reviewed July 21, 2012 by Natalie MacLean
Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|Classic Shiraz nose of blackberry, pepper, woodsmoke and a hint of blueberry. Dry and crisp with fruit flavours building gradually. Soft, yet still very fresh with an elegant, though fruity finish. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.|
|The season provided an excellent starting point, and the|
resulting wine is a clear indication as to why the Tyrrell family love the Heathcote
region. The wine has a dense, purple colour and bright hue. It shows a pretty,
lifted aromatic profile of dark berries and some white pepper. The palate shows
intense, sweet black plum flavours which are given a subtle lift from the French
oak, both of which are connected by a fine tannin structure and a bright acidity.
