Tyrrell's Wines Rufus Stone Shiraz 2007 (Heathcote)

Mmmm.. this wine was a pressie and a welcome one at that.
I love Heathcote Shiraz and this was no disappointment. Really smooth and almost buttery.
Definitely a cut above some of the shiraz I have had lately and a wonderful accompaniment to the Lamb Madrasi I had from Sultans Kitchen at Clayfield. (normally I would be cooking the curry, but Sultans does this one particularly well... and it rained like something from the Old Testament today, so curry and a good red was just what the Doctor ordered.

Ahem. I digress...

Find this wine. I assume Tyrrells is available anywhere. It has a strong and tasty berry palate. Easy to drink, but not like lolly water. A hint of chocolate???
Nice french oak but not over powering - quite restrained alongside the rich berries.
I would love to get more of this and will suss it out once i finish this spiel.
Not imagining it's under $20. Let me know your thoughts if you have any...

Price: a gift (will take a look online later) (investigations show that it is indeed under $20... it's definitely a winner then)

NB. My investigations show that this wine sells for $14.99 at most online retailers, yet Get Wines Direct are stating that it's $24.95... shop around.

Rating: 92 (will get some more for sure!!)
