The vines in the HVD vineyard were planted in 1908 and form the 'Sign Post Block. The wine is floral fruit in youth, which moves towards biscuity characters with age. The palate is generally softer bodied with smoother acids than the Vat 1 and Belford Semillons

Single Vineyard
Hunter Valley, NSW

Jane Faulkner, James Halliday Wine Companion

95 Points - There's a wonderful approach into this - nothing out of place, sit back and enjoy the evenness of its palate, the acidity almost softish, the lemongrass and slivers of glace lime, the texture, just the yumminess of it. Great drinking.

James Halliday

95 Points - The 108-year-old vineyard is believed to have the oldest chardonnay in Australia - quite possibly anywhere in the world. It is at once intense yet fine, stone fruits, citrus apple and pear all to be found on the bouquet and very long plate. Screwcap. Drink to 2019.

John Lewis, Newcastle Herald

4.5 Stars - The HVD vineyard, near the intersection of Broke and Hermitage roads, Pokolbin, was planted in 1908 by Federal Cabinet member Greg Combet’s great-grandfather, Alex Combet – a French-born vigneron who was manager of the Hunter Valley Distillery (HVD) operation. The Tyrrell’s have made great use of HVD grapes in this straw-hued, guava-scented white. It has fresh, youthful white peach flavour on the front of the palate, with elements of pear, lemon curd, mineral and creamy oak on the middle palate. Steely acid holds sway at the finish.
