HVD Single Vineyard Semillon

by James Halliday on

(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

Vat 1 Hunter Semillon

by JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION on

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.

by NICK STOCK, GOOD FOOD GUIDE 2013 on

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.

Old Winery Traminer Riesling

Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz

by John Fordham, Sunday Telegraph on

Hunter Valley headquartered winery Tyrrell’s decision to source shiraz from Victoria’s Heathcote region two decades ago has been vindicated many times over. This full-flavoured shiraz features palate-gripping intensity, long length, balance, elegance, and loads of peppery and spicy characters.

Vat 47 Hunter Chardonnay

by James Halliday Chardonnay Challenge on

96 Points & Best of Hunter Valley Region

by Wine Genius on

95 Points - The flagship Chardonnay of the grand Tyrrell’s brand lives up to its reputation. A delightful blend between raw primary fruits, assertive oak and even handed winemaking. Ripe nectarine, orange blossom, melon and apple peel are offset by citrus spice and floral lift. Generous palate weight with almond meal, waxy oak and bright crackling acidity. Will build in time. Drink 2014-2019.

by Andrew Corrigan, B Magazine on

The top white [at the 2013 Cairns Wine Show] was Tyrrell’s Vat 47 2012, a wine famous for being understated and subtle in style. It is more expensive but represents a great Australian classic.

4 stars out of 5 - The nose is still very tight and closed with some oak showing through. The long palate is fresh, balanced and citrussy. Recommended cellaring 3-5 years.
