Tyrrell’s success in 2015 Adelaide and Melbourne Wine Shows

Wed, October 21st 2015

Tyrrell’s Vat 1 Hunter Semillon 2005 was awarded the Trophy for The Best Semillon at both the Adelaide and Melbourne Wine Shows, the Trophy for Best White of Show in Adelaide and Best Mature White in Melbourne.  Vat 1 has now won the Finlayson Trophy for The Best Semillon of Adelaide Show five years in a row, and has won The Best Semillon and Best Mature White trophies in Melbourne for three years in a row.

In Adelaide, we received Gold medals for Vat 47 Hunter Chardonnay 2013, Vat 47 Hunter Chardonnay 2012, Vat 1 Hunter Semillon 2005 and Stevens Semillon 2011.  The interesting fact from the Adelaide Show was that there were 16 Gold medals awarded for Chardonnay of which 25 percent came from the Hunter Valley. 

In Melbourne, we received Gold medals for Vat 47 Hunter Chardonnay 2012, Vat 1 Hunter Semillon 2015, Vat 1 Hunter Semillon 2005 and Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz 2013. 

We will be releasing a small quantity of Vat 1 Hunter Semillon 2005 in November, which will retail for approximately $125.00 per bottle.  This wine now has 23 Trophies and 43 Gold medals.  Vat 1 Hunter Semillon 2015 is available at Cellar Door only and Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz 2013 is the current release with a RRP of $25.00 per bottle.
