2021 Tyrrell’s 4 Acres Shiraz Hunter Valley – Planted in 1879, 4 Acres is the oldest block of Shiraz on the Ashmans property, sitting just to the right of the driveway that leads up to the winery. This 2021 release of 4 Acres celebrates the 142nd anniversary of this historic vineyard, which produces one of Australia’s most unique wines. This vineyard produces fruit that has its own unique style and structure, and the wine is only ever produced in outstanding vintages.
On February 18 the fruit was handpicked and sorted in the vineyard before a natural fermentation took place in our open top vats with approximately 10% whole bunches. After fermentation, the wine was matured in a single, three-year-old French oak cask for 14 months.
Medium colour density with a bright purple hue. It has a complex aromatic profile of red fruits, dried herb and touch of pepper. The palate shows great precision and clarity, whilst being light to mediumbodied, a true Hunter River Burgundy style. Bright red fruits, lively acid and subtle tannins all work together seamlessly. A wine with deceptive length, and great complexity and freshness.
