TYRRELL’S HUNTER VAL­LEY OLD PATCH SHI­RAZ 2017

Singapore Tatler - - LIFE -

More depth than the four acres. This old plot was planted in 1867 and it has ex­celled in vin­tage 2017. The nose car­ries pris­tine aro­mas of rasp­berry, red plum and mul­berry in gen­tly spicy re­pose. The palate un­furls lay­ers and lay­ers of lightly spiced red- and dark-fruit flavours with tan­nins that seem to hold end­lessly on the fin­ish. Pitch-per­fect and no­ble. An es­say in grace and charm. Akin to grand cru Bur­gundy and maybe Musigny too. This really ought to be left alone for a decade. 100 points
