The colour is a medium yellow and the nose shows full, clean Semillon, lifted citrus and some straw notes. On the palate these flavours are added to with toasty, yeast characters gained in the winemaking process. An excellent celebratory alternative to the mainstream sparklings, particularly for people looking for a drier taste.
Tyrrell’s offers a range of Hunter semillons from the austere, long-lived Vat 1 to this approachable Lost Block. It’s low in alcohol (11 per cent) and light and fresh on the palate, with the region’s delicious lemongrass- and citrus-like flavours. It’s one of Australia’s distinctive regional specialties.
Medium-bodied style, with cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, showing some savoury complexity, and gentle tannins.
Mouthfilling and well rounded, with very good body, balance ripeness and depth.…….It is already drinking well
Bright fresh Sauvignon Blanc with pure pink grapefruit, guava, passionfruit and ripe apple flavours. Gently aromatic wine with an ethereal texture. A delicate and appealing style
From the Wairau Valley in New Zealand’s famous Marlborough wine district. Distributed in Australia by Hunter Valley producer Tyrrell’s, it’s a stylish savvy, dry and restrained with a small portion matured in French oak, citrus and tropical fruit flavours, herbal characters and zippy acidity.
This wine is typical of what the region does best. It offers a youthful green/pale straw colour. The palate offers mouth-watering passionfruit with grassy herbaceous overtones which cut right through. The crisp acidity on the finish is dry and intense.
This fruit-driven white pairs with creamy white chocolate like passionfruit and pavlova.
Fresh, citrusy and limey, with mouth-filling body, tight acidity and a dry, lingering finish.
While the Tyrrells brand is wedged firmly in the Hunter Valley of NSW, like any progressive brand, it realised the Hunter can attract only so much of a following, with most of it in its home state. So what’s the next best thing, buy a patch of land in one of Australia’s growing regions, Heathcote in Victoria. Nestled between the Goulburn valley and Bendigo, it offers Shiraz a temperate climate with generous rainfall, and therefore produces wines that are more elegant and restrained than the Hunter Valley has to offer. This is a good example.
(2013 Vintage) A ripe and fruit driven nose. The palate is well balanced with flavours of spice, mocha, vanilla and oak, plus long length and fine, firm tannins.
(2012 Vintage) 94 Points - Light to medium purple-crimson; a fresh and juicy blend of red, blue and black fruits provide a fragrant bouquet and a supple, fresh light to medium-bodied palate with good line and length.
(2012 Vintage) 95 points - Classic Heathcote shiraz, in the most elegant guise. Tyrrell’s vineyard is now twenty years old, and in 2012 it put forth lovely purity and focus of black plum and blackberry fruit. Refined tannins, vibrant acid focus and supportive dark chocolate French oak (30% new) unite to build finely textured structure, seamless line and lingering persistence.
(2010 Vintage) 95 Points - The HVD vineyard was planted in 1908. Despite a touch of spritz, this has started down its development path with the first hint of honey joining the lively, tangy lemon/lemongrass flavours, the acidity crisp and reassuring.
(2010 Vintage) 94 Points - The more I taste the fruits of this vineyard, the more I adore it. And look at the price!. This year is a bright and crisp expression with crunchy apple fruit and mouth watering acidity. It’s loaded up with everything - great concentration and richness, fine minerality and a long finish.
(2010 Vintage) 93 Points - Very light yellow. Fragrant, slightly floral nose, lovely lemony fresh semillon with a degree of richness. Soft and refined in mouth, delicate and subtle but also has softness and a hint of richness that invites you in. Already very approachable
95 Points & Outstanding - ...lemon juice and lemon curd flavours follow logically from the bouquet, lemony acidity lingering long in the mouth after the wine is swallowed.
95 Points - A great result in the 2012 vintage, this has the trademark Tyrrell’s class and concentration, mixing power with restraint. There’s plenty of lime and white nectarine fruit on offer here, with a really lovely lean yet juicy palate, great acidity and drive. Terrific.
3 stars out of 5 - Lemony with a touch of snow pea sprout. Fresh but has green aromas and flavours.
