Tyrrell’s Vat 9 Museum Release Shiraz 2014


From one of the greatest vintages I can’t quite describe how excited we were to taste the 2014 museum release Vat 9. Vat 9 is without doubt one of the world’s great Shiraz/Syrah wines and at this price is one of the bargains of fine wine. Bright and youthful, a soaring nose of cherry cola, star anise, nutmeg, blackberry, spiced plum, unfired coal and flowers. Riveting and vital, a tidal wave of flavour and textural power. Medium to full bodied, with s seductive elegance, a foil to breathtaking expansive palate. So much fruit, layered with spice,silken tannins and abundant acidity. Supreme. Clarets of Australian wine. Waters Wine Co.

After seven years in the bottle, its colour is amazingly youthful; intense currant red with deep purple hues. Dried herbs, liquorice and forest floor create a complex array of seductive aromatics. Cola confectionary hints at the warm vintage, leading into savoury spice, liquorice and fresh, dark fruits. The subtle influence of French oak (foudre, 2700L) appears as a structural component; offering a polished palate shape with a persistent length. This wine highlights the Hunter Valley’s ability to make fresh, medium-bodied wines in warm vintages. Tyrrell’s

The fruit for the 2014 Vat 9 Shiraz was sourced only from the oldest and best blocks of the Ashmans property which all share the same deep volcanic, red clay soils. The oldest of these blocks was planted in 1892. An almost perfect growing season was experienced for the 2014 vintage, one of the best in recent memory. This meant that all of the fruit harvested was in pristine condition and had beautiful flavour. The blocks were all hand picked and sorted in the vineyard before arriving at the winery. All the fruit was destemmed but not crushed, followed by fermentation in traditional open top concrete vats. After fermentation, the wines were matured in newer 2700L French oak casks for 15 months.
