Tyrrell’s Wins 2 Trophies & 7 Golds at the 2021 Hunter Valley Wine Show

We are thrilled to announce that the Tyrrell’s 2018 Old Hillside Shiraz was just awarded a Gold Medal and the James Busby Memorial Trophy at the 2021 Hunter Valley Wine Show for the best three-year-old and older Shiraz.

Tyrrell’s 3.3-hectare Old Hillside vineyard is a steep, east-facing block that features rich deep-red soil mixed with an unusually coloured purple ochre clay loam. The oldest vines within this vineyard, planted in 1867, are the source for our Old Patch Shiraz, while the remainder goes into our Old Hillside Shiraz with an average vine age of 50 years. 2018 was a stellar vintage for Shiraz in the Hunter Valley, and the 2018 Old Hillside Shiraz is the star, with brooding dark fruit characters with a great length and a bright, fresh acidity.
