Tyrrell’s Lunatiq Heathcote Shiraz

Classic Heathcote shiraz, in the most elegant guise. Tyrrell’s vineyard is now twenty years old, and in 2012 it put forth lovely purity and focus of black plum and blackberry fruit. Refined tannins, vibrant acid focus and supportive dark chocolate French oak (30% new) unite to build finely textured structure, seamless line and lingering persistence. $29 at Wine Style (2010), $36 at Cracka (2012).
