Tyrrell is inextricably linked to the story of wine across the great viticultural precincts of Australia. Tyrrell have strayed from their Hunter Valley roots to isolate a superlative site at Willunga, nestled at the heart of McLaren Vale. It features a block of thirty five year old Shiraz vines that consistently produce outstanding fruit. A prolific award winner, Rufus Stone represents salient value for quality, a generous expression of McLaren Vale, endowed with great finesse and displaying ripe, fruit driven Shiraz flavours.
Rufus Stone property in McLaren Vale yields intensely flavoured Shiraz with deep colours and perfect natural acidity. The fruit is always clean, well ripened and in good health. Shiraz is harvested, crushed and chilled on site amongst the Willunga vines before being transported to the Tyrrell wineworks in Hunter Valley. The transport provides an opportune vessel for doing the pre-ferment cold soak which extracts colour and flavour from grapes. Following twelve days of ferment in small five and ten tonnes vessels, Rufus Stone is pressed into a selection of new and prior use, predominantly 225L American oak barriques, for completion of malolactic, assemblage and twenty months maturation.
TASTING NOTES
Dense red colour with bright purple hues. Lifted aromatics are accentuated by flavours of cherries, chocolate and plum. Fine, long tannins support the powerful fruit to achieve seamless palate structure. Rich and full bodied, a fine balance of power and finesse, Rufus Stone will complement a wide array of robust and intensly flavoured foods, roast lamb or game dishes, casseroles and hard cheese.

About the Tyrrells Winery
The story of Tyrrell's Wines is inextricably linked to the story of wine in Australia
It is a story about pioneers, men and women who transformed the Hunter Valley of NSW, planted grapes there, and looked for better ways to make wine. English immigrant Edward Tyrrell planted his first vines in the Hunter Valley in 1858 establishing Tyrrell's Wines after receiving a land grant in apparently poor pastureland in the lee of the Hunter Valley's Brokenback range.
