Overview & Tasting Notes

The 1908 block at the HVD Vineyard was hand picked and basket pressed, with the juice cold settled for four days before fermentation began in stainless steel tanks. The fermenting juice was then transferred to French oak barriques, 30% of which were new. The wine is balanced between primary chardonnay fruit flavours and secondary flavours, derived from the minimal solids ferment and extended yeast lees contact, resulting in this wine's texture and mouthfeel.

  • James Haliday (2015 Wine Companion) on

    94 Points - From what Tyrrell’s modestly says is ‘Arguably the oldest chardonnay vineyard in Australia’. There s’ no arguably about it; it is the oldest, period, full stop. It has abundant varietal fruit in mid range of white peach flaviours, and veryy good length. 200 dozen made - a bargain piece of history.
