Tyrrell's Lunatiq Heathcote Shiraz: A Bold and Spicy Delight

Tyrrell's Wines, a legendary name in Australian winemaking, offers an exquisite Shiraz experience with their Lunatiq label. Sourced from the renowned Heathcote wine region in Victoria, this Shiraz showcases the unique character of its ancient Cambrian soil terroir.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: Deep, inky purple with youthful crimson highlights.
  • Nose: A seductive swirl releases a heady perfume of ripe blackberries, dark plums, and a tantalising hint of black pepper. Subtle notes of vanilla and cedar emerge from well-integrated French oak.
  • Palate: Intense and full-bodied, the palate explodes with ripe black fruit flavours. Layers of spice, including black pepper, clove, and a touch of liquorice, create intriguing complexity. Supportive tannins provide structure, with a hint of dark chocolate on the lingering finish.

Food Pairings

The bold flavours and firm structure of Tyrrell's Lunatiq Heathcote Shiraz call for equally robust dishes. Here are some inspired pairings:

  • Hearty Meats: This Shiraz is a natural match for slow-roasted lamb with rosemary and garlic, or a perfectly grilled ribeye steak seasoned simply with salt and pepper.
  • Spiced Dishes: The wine's peppery notes find harmony with dishes like Moroccan lamb tagine with apricots and almonds, or a rich and spicy beef rendang.
  • Game: Venison stew, roast duck with cherry sauce, and other game preparations complement the wine's earthy undertones.
  • Mature Cheeses: Pair with aged cheddar, blue cheese, or a bold, crumbly Parmesan for a classic flavour combination.

Serving Tips

  • Temperature: Serve slightly chilled, around 16-18°C, to highlight the wine's fresh fruit character.
  • Decanting: Decant for at least an hour before serving to allow the wine to open up and fully express its aromas and flavours.
  • Glassware: Use large, Bordeaux-style glasses to fully appreciate the wine's complex bouquet.

Why the Name 'Lunatiq'?

Tyrrell's playfully named their top Heathcote Shiraz 'Lunatiq' as a nod to the region's gold rush history. Prospectors were viewed as a bit 'mad' for braving the harsh conditions in search of riches, just as some might consider winemakers 'lunatic' for taking a chance on this once-overlooked area that's now revered for its superb Shiraz.
