Tyrrell’s Special Release is reserved for unique parcels of fruit that in a particular vintage have those qualities and point of difference to warrant being bottled and released on their own. Verdelho is one of the Hunter Valley’s key white varieties and the Fordwich sub-region often produces the best Verdelho. 2016 was such a good vintage that we decided to bottle the best parcel on its own.
An unwooded early drinking style, the wine has intense varietal characteristics with aromas of limes, sweet fruit and some spice. The palate is well balanced with the fruit sweetness balanced by a crisp acid finish.
