Accolades

  • Chris Shanahan - Sunday Canberra Times on

    A Chateau Shanahan favourite for a couple of decades. Moon Mountain provides sophisticated chardonnay drinking (and medium-term cellarability) at a fair price. Good Hunter fruit is at the heart of the wine. But over the last 40 years, the Tyrrell family and winemaker Andrew Spinaze perfected the art of chardonnay making. Thus that delicious fruit comes in a matrix of aromas, flavours and textures derived from winemaking techniques. Grape solids in the fermentation, maturation on yeast lees (and lees stirring) in new and older French oak barrels all adds to the drinking pleasure.

  • Tony Love - Herald Sun on

    The Tyrrell’s team call this the “baby brother of Vat 47”, their flagship Hunter chardonnay. This is way more affordable, shows slightly heavier oak influence with glimpses of the winemaking nous that goes into the more elite offering.

  • Robert Parker, eRobertParker.com on

    88 Points.

  • Jim McMahon on Fri, August 16th 2013

    A young, vibrant green straw colour gives way to a nose of opulent ripe chardonnay fruit. The palate is nicely textured with good integration of subtle oak, fruit and acidity. Apricots, melon and vanilla take centre stage, while subtle oak adds structure and backbone to this wine. The finish is firm and crisp with a generous mouthfeel.
