Overview of the Wine
New World? Tyrrell's Wines produced their first vintage in 1864.
Located well in the heart of the Hunter Valley, the winery is better known today for continuing to produce arguably the region's best Semillon.
In 1858, Edward Tyrrell planted his first vines in the Hunter Valley. In 1959, Murray Tyrrell took control of the winery and started producing Tyrrell’s wines under their own labels. Tyrrell’s pioneered Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Australia and quickly received international recognition. While remaining a family company, Tyrrell’s has reached out to larger wine markets: in recent years, it has expanded its traditional Hunter Valley vineyard base to other famous vineyard areas in Australia.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The nose is clean with a hint of lemon richness, the palate continues with fresh citrus and concentrated grapefruit flavors. The finish is pleasing with a balance of fruit and soft acid. A great match to any shellfish. Excellent drinking upon release and will develop in complexity with short term bottle age.

From a stellar vintage in Hunter Valley, this late-release wine is just coming into its own. Freshly squeezed lemon bursts from the glass, accompanied by citrus leaf, blossom and white spice notes. A laser beam of crystalline acidity slices through the textural, citrus-driven palate. Drink now with buttery seafood, or cellar for through 2035.
A fantastic semillon, this is deep and dry with lemon-curd, salt, stone and pear-skin character. Full and energetic. So much going on here. It goes on for minutes. Block of marble. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
