Tyrrell’s Wines success at the 2015 Hunter Valley Wine Show
Thu, August 27th 2015
The Hunter Valley Wine Show has been held continuously since 1974 and is regarded as the premier regional wine show of Australia. This is due in no small measure to the quality of the
judging panels it continues to attract.
At this year’s Hunter Valley Wine Show held on Friday 21st August, Tyrrell’s was honoured to be awarded six trophies:
Best White Wine of Show (Vat 1 Semillon 2006)
Best Semillon (Vat 1 Semillon 2006)
Best Mature Two Year Old and Older Semillon (Vat 1 Semillon 2006)
Best Museum White (Belford Semillon 2005)
Best Two Year Old and Older Chardonnay (Belford Chardonnay 2013)
Best Museum Red (Stevens Shiraz 2007)
In addition, from 6.5% of entries, Tyrrell’s was awarded 12 Gold medals, representing 17.5% of all the Gold medals won in the Show, as well as 10 Silver and 15 Bronze medals.
Tyrrell’s Wines was also highly honoured to receive the Ian Riggs Wine of Provenance Award. The Wine of Provenance Award is designed to recognise and celebrate wines of exceptional origin reflecting consistency of style, a sense of place and quality over time.
“The most important trophy to me is the Wine of Provenance, as this really recognises what the Hunter Valley is all about. The Wine of Provenance represents wines with a sense of place, and the ability to live and improve in the bottle.
There has been a total of five Wine of Provenance Awards from the Hunter Valley Wine shows, and Tyrrell’s has won three of these with our Vat 1 Hunter Valley Semillon, Vat 9 Hunter Valley Shiraz and now, Johnno’s Hunter Valley Shiraz.”
