Accolades

  • John Lewis on Mon, November 25th 2013

    This latest version is brassy gold, has apricot scents and brings ripe white peach flavour to the front palate. Passionfruit, melon and creamy oak characters combine on the middle palate and the finish brings in flinty acid.

  • Huon Hooke on Mon, December 9th 2013

    89 Points

    Tyrrell’s chardonnays have been continuing to improve in recent years, becoming finer and tighter with less alcohol. Even this $18 label offers great alue. Nutty, lemon and lime -leaf aromas lead into a soft, round, ripe palate with good acidity as well as generous flavour. All this at just 12.5 per cent alcohol. Now to 2016.

  • Chris Shanahan on Thu, February 20th 2014

    At a modest 12.5 per cent alcohol, the wine delivers chardonnay’s stone fruit and melon varietal flavours on a fine, fresh palate, lifted in texture and flavour by maturation on spent yeast cells.

  • James Halliday on Mon, March 10th 2014

    90 points

    Tyrrell’s has been making chardonnay for longer than anyone else in the Hunter Valley, and even at this price point delivers that bit of extra length and purity of varietal expression, little or no oak evident and ready now.

  • Tony Love on Fri, April 25th 2014

    Bargain chardonnay can be a gamble, and here’s one worth taking to discover a smart mix of what you may have heard of as the variety’s “new age” in Australia — a small dash only of oak, subtle malt and yeast-like backdrop notes and lovely stone fruit highlights to finish. Tasty, and great value on discount.
