Natalie's Score: 92/100

Tyrrell's Rufus Stone 2021 is a vegan-friendly Shiraz so named in honour of the rock in the English forest where King William II died when an arrow bounced off an oak tree and pierced his chest while hunting. And the story goes that the arrow was from the quiver of Sir Walter Tyrrell who was an ancestor of the Tyrrell winemaking family. But this is a lovely full-bodied red wine with lots of dark cherry, dark chocolate, plum, chocolate, menthol and pepper spice flavours vibrant and long on the palate. Very delicious and no pointy edges here, enjoy it with a rosemary and garlic-rubbed roast leg of lamb.

Shiraz food pairings: lamb, beef and game dishes.
