The Tyrrell’s estate, nestled in the foothills of the Brokenback Range in the Hunter Valley, is a unique patchwork of vineyards. Thriving in a diverse range of soils, from sandy loams lying on ancient creek beds to heavier red clays over limestone, these vineyards produce some of the most distinctive and refined wines in the world.Located at an elevation of about 135 metres adjacent to Ekert’s Road on the edge of Mary Ann’s creek on the southern boundary of the original Ashmans property, Johnno’s vineyard is planted on alluvial sandy loam soils. Originally known as the Long Flat vineyard, the name was changed in 2002 in honour of fifth-generation family member John Tyrrell. The vineyard was first planted in 1908 with a mix of Semillon (2.1 hectares) and Shiraz (0.7 hectares) vines. It’s the source for two of our Sacred Sites wines: Johnno’s Shiraz, the only one of our iconic Shiraz wines to come from vines planted on lighter soils, giving it a character all its own; and Johnno’s Semillon, which tends to have a more pronounced texture than is usually found in our whites.

The Grape

Shiraz or Syrah

Shiraz, or Syrah, is one of the most loved, rich and powerful red wine varieties made famous for its mineral and structured expressions from the Rhône in France and the rich and decadent fruity expressions from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Full bodied, rich in antioxidants and generously fruity, Shiraz sits proudly on the table for those that like their wine big and bold. Think violets, blackberries, plum, chocolate, pepper, black olive, liquorice, rosemary, tobacco and spice...i'm thirsty already!
