Overview & Tasting Notes

The 80% chardonnay came from our HVD Vineyard and the 20% semillon was sourced from our Vat 1 blend. Both were made separately then blended and bottled in August 2012. Pale yellow in colour with sweet chardonnay fruit and quality French oak on the nose. The palate has the combination of the strength of chardonnay fruit and the finesse and freshness of semillon.

    Ignore all preconceptions of this blend that you might have from cheap and nasty renditions, this wine is Vat 47 (80%) tweaked with a little Vat 1 (20%) and ludicrously offered at well under half the price of either. Quite how Tyrrell’s accountants have let this go on since the late sixties is beyond me, but at only 250 cases, Bruce Tyrrell has probably drunk it all himself (it’s his favourite wine in many vintages). This year production has doubled and the price has increased from $23 to $30, so there’s enough to go around. It’s tight, focused and lively, with the texture and white fruits of Vat 47 and the focus, energy, drive and spine of Vat 1. Best price direct.

    80 percent Vat 47 Chardonnay ($69) + 20 percent Vat 1 ($75) = Vat 63 ($30). Bruce Tyrrell recently raised the price of his favourite wine but it’s still half of what it should be. Refined and age worthy.
