Description

Tyrrell’s is as much a part of the fabric of the Hunter Valley as the Semillon and Shiraz vines they’ve been nurturing since their founder, English-immigrant Edward Tyrrell, first planted them during the mid-19th century. This wine is a one-off blend from the two best wines of the vintage, HVD “Sign-post” and Belford. These two blocks were planted in 1908 and 1993 respectively, and are two of the iconic Semillon vineyards of the world. Both are dry grown and planted on sandy soils next to old creek beds, ideal for high-quality Semillon.

TASTING NOTES
Bright, attractive green in colour, the nose shows intense citrus characters. The palate is expansive and powerful, hallmarks of a warmer vintage. Wonderful length and flavour with the pedigree of the vine-yards showing through.

FOOD PAIRING
Sydney rock oysters, sashimi or simple scallops in the shell or once aged, pairs better with richer food such as lobster or smoked fish. Goat’s cheese.
