Tyrrell's 2009 "Lunatiq" Heathcote Shiraz

This is Tyrrell's non-Hunter flagship red and it is an absolute beauty.
Our cellar door single bottle price is $35 and as I tell everyone it's the best value red we have. Easily $50+ quality. It was the star during a short break at Hamilton Island in 2011 and I've put a dozen aside to enjoy over the next decade.
For Heathcote alcohol is a sensible 13.9% and while there's plenty of opulence there are glorious tannins and balancing acid. The excitement of every sip is that it reveals a new aspect of its complexity. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Our Price: $29 per bottle by the dozen

It's been a favourite of ours for sometime now. There are 3 dozen available as at October 15, 2010
