Tyrrell’s Wines is a pre-eminent family owned and operated Australian wine company managed by fourth-generation winemaker Bruce Tyrrell. The winemaking team, headed by Chief Winemaker Andrew Spinaze, works with the objective to produce some of Australia’s most iconic wines crafted using fruits sourced from their in-house vineyards in Hunter Valley, NSW and Heathcote, Victoria. The winery was established by Edward Tyrrell, the great-grandfather of Bruce when he first came to Pokolbin from England in 1858.
The grapes used to craft Stomping Ground Shiraz were fermented in traditional open-top vats and matured in older large format casks to highlight fruit flavours and purity. The scintillating nose exudes youthful and bright red fruit aromas which effortlessly shift to the palate to provide flavours of red fruits coupled with soft and savoury tannins. These flavours are further balanced by an elegant mineral acidity, ending the wine in a delicate and persistent finale. This medium-bodied Shiraz tastes excellent with venison, smoked brisket, and grilled or roasted vegetables with bold sauces.
