    This Hunter semillon is my pick of the batch. It is green- tinted straw and has scents of lime marmalade and toast. Vibrant lemon flavour zips on to the front of the palate and kiwifruit, spice and mineral characters show on the middle palate. Slatey acid refreshes at the finish.

    Tyrrell’s Lost Block flagship, the Lost Block Semillon, was named after a vintage misadventure n 1993, when semillon grapes on a small vineyard block were inadvertently forgotten about at harvest time. After realising the oversight, the ‘lost’ semillon was eventually picked and chief winemaker, Andrew Spinaze, created amore approachable, softer style than the classic aged Hunter semillon’s for which Tyrrell’s is renowned. The tank of juice was duly titled the “Lost Block” and the name stuck.

    4 stars

    One of the typical aromatic qualities of Semillon can be cut hay or field grass-like wafts. And while some fresh picked versions can be almost shocking in their electric acidity, here there’s a temering for easier, earlier drinking and a richer, riper set of flavours. There’s a lift of blossom, lemon zest and mouth-watering minerals to finish.

  • Tony Love (Sunday Times Perth) on Mon, March 3rd 2014

    4 stars

    A richer, riper set of flavours, a lift of blossom, lemon zest and mouth -watering minerals to finish, creating a delicious introduction to the variety.

  • James Halliday on Mon, March 10th 2014

    90 points

    The ‘13 Semillon vintage in the Hunter Valley produced wines with well above average flavour, giving some of the wines - this included - hints of the honeyed lemon cake characters of maturity. Delicious already and for short-term cleaaring. 11.5%.

  • Jim McMahon on Mon, March 31st 2014

    This wine has a bright green-tinged straw colour. The nose is very fragrant, with a mixture of tropical and herbaceous fruits. The palate is fresh and tangy with herbaceous flavours and passionfruit together with citrus flavours on a dry, crisp acid finish.

  • Jeremy Oliver on Fri, April 18th 2014

    A bright, delicious and early-drinking semillon for the warmer months. Refreshing and uncomplicated, it’s fruity and flavoursome with a pleasingly intense bouquet of green melon and fresh lemon that is also faintly floral. Round and generous, it’s smooth and unctuous despite its modest alcoholic strength with long-lasting flavours of citrus and melon wrapped neatly by a bright, vivacious acidity. It’s a snappy new look for this expanded Tyrrell’s Wines brand.
