Tyrrell's 2005 Double Barrel 24 Shiraz

It's a statement of the bleeding obvious that tasting wines like this will always be a highlight of our working week.It's a true flagship red and is deservingly their most expensive with a cellar door price of $99. We're offering it at $80.
The fruit is 90% McLaren Vale and 10% Heathcote. It's had 24 months in new French oak with half that in internally corrugated barriques that's increased the contact area by 500%. Yes, the oak does dominate at the moment but the fruit and tannins are there waiting to integrate.
An outstanding red.

RRP: $99
Our Price: $80
