Tyrrell's Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz

The story of the Rufus Stone dates back almost 1,000 years to medieval England. King William II, known as Rufus, is believed to have been killed by an errant arrow fired by Sir Walter Tyrrell – an ancestor of the Tyrrell family. Today, the site of this infamous incident is marked by the Rufus Stone. Since 1997, our top non-Hunter red wines have been named in honour of Tyrrell’s historical association with the Rufus Stone.

The vintage conditions for our Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz were just about perfect, with warm, dry days followed by cool nights, allowing the fruit to gain the ripe, full flavours of modern Australian Shiraz while maintaining the fresh mineral line and tension of the classic European styles. The fruit arrived at the winery at 13°C allowing for a long and controlled start to fermentation. This is a full-bodied wine that offers intense aromas of black plum and white pepper. Spicy French oak supports and guides the impressive volume of fruit. Dark-chocolate, ripe-mulberry and plum flavours linger on the palate, supported by fine-grain tannins.

ABV-14.7%

Size-750ml
