Sold out
A single vineyard wine from the Elliott family’s vineyard in Belford, which is leased by Tyrrell’s and is located about 10km northwest of the winery. The vineyard is dry grown and was planted in 1933. Being the vineyard that is furthest away from the Brokenback range it has the most broken down soil, which is so fine it is almost like talcum powder. An almost perfect example of Belford Semillon, this wine has the fuller, richer, almost honeyed palate that is commonly associated with the vineyard. These characters are balanced by a soft, clean acid profile that gives the wine its great length.

James Halliday Wine Companion

94 Points - Pale straw-green; a well-mannered chardonnay with not a hair out of place; its fruit flavour profile is very good, spanning melon, apple and white peach, the barrel ferment oak integrated, the acidity balanced. You'll look in vain for the touch of mongrel that might have lifted it into top class territory.

Nick Stock

93 points - This is the real deal with lemon curd and pear character. Stone undertones. Full and structured. All here. Chewy and fresh. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Lester Jesberg

5 stars out of 5 - Much more restrained than the Stevens. It’s intense and tight, with steely acidity. Definitely a cellaring style.
