This Hunter Valley Semillon is sourced from a selection of some of the Tyrrell’s family’s top Semillon vineyards around the Hunter Valley. Most of the vineyards are dry grown and have an average vine age of 40 years.
Winemaker’s Notes The grapes were picked in the cool of the night before a gentle pressing and fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine then spent a short amount of time on yeast lees to gain extra complexity and mouth feel.
Tasting Notes Classic Hunter Valley Semillon from another strong vintage. The nose is vibrant with an abundance of citrus fruits and floral elements. The palate is medium bodied, yet intense, with great length and crisp acidity. Don’t be fooled by its modest price tag – this wine should develop very nicely in bottle over the coming 5 years or so!
