2021 Tyrrell’s 8 Acres Shiraz Hunter Valley – The Hunter Valley is home to some of the oldest vineyards in the world. Tyrrell’s Sacred Sites wines are made only from vines that are more than 100 years old and on their own roots. The origins of most of these vines lie in the Busby Collection – cuttings brought to Australia from Europe by James Busby and planted in the Hunter Valley in 1832.
The 8 Acres vineyard was planted in 1892 and sits just below the 4 Acres vineyard beside the driveway up to the winery. The vine orientation is north-south, perpendicular to the 4 Acres vines, and the vineyard produces a different style of wine altogether.
Bright purple with more density of colour than the 4 Acres. A rounder, medium-bodied, darker-fruited style. Juicy and moreish, with a loose-knit structure that gives the wine an element of approachability but also an underlying length and structure that reflect its pedigree.
