Natalie's Score: 92/100
A classic Shiraz from Australia named after the Rufus Stone 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. Talk about unlucky. And the story goes that the arrow was from the quiver of Sir Walter Tyrrell who was an ancestor of the Tyrrell winemaking family was responsible for the incident. But this beautiful, smooth, layered blackberry, dark plum and nutty Shiraz makes up for it.
Shiraz food pairings: lamb, beef and game dishes.

Reviews and Ratings
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A dynamic, tactile Shiraz from Heathcoate, produced by one of Australia's First Families of Wine. The Rufus Stone Shiraz is loaded with blackberry, melted black licorice, warm spice, cassis, plum skin, with a slight mentholated quality coming to bear as you swirl it in your glass. There's some pepper, Kenya AA coffee and dark chocolate notes on the finish. Very lithe and not overdone. 91 Points.
|Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Intense aromas of jammy sweet dark fruit, black pepper, and cocoa, with slight violet and cured meat notes. Decent tannins and acidity with a full body of 14.9% ABV. Not too jammy or overripe on the palate, but certainly fruity with plenty of plum, black cherry, and cassis on the palate. Perfect for ox cheek stew or a rare steak with pepper sauce.
|Tyrrell's Rufus Stone Shiraz 2016 is a great value, full-bodied red from Heathcote, Victoria wine region. ripe plum, walnut and spicy aromas on the nose, this is a dry, multilayered smooth red with ripe plum, black currant, cold teak, earthy, nutty and savoury spice flavours lingering on the palate. Enjoy now and for the next 10 years. Rufus Stone in so named after the rock where King William II died while hunting, when an arrow bounced off an oak tree and pierced his chest. Apparently, the arrow was from the quiver of Sir Walter Tyrrell who was an ancestor of the Tyrrell winemaking family. - Community Wine Reviews|
