Hunter Valley Chardonnay

Sourced from a small selection of our favourite Chardonnay blocks, the grapes were both hand and machine picked before gentle pressing and fermentation. The wine was matured in new and older French oak barriques, and spent all of this time on yeast lees to give the palate added complexity and texture.

James Halliday

(for 2015 vintage) 90 Points - Matured in new and used French barriques. Quite how Tyrrell’s can invest Hunter Valley chardonnay at this alcohol level with such fresh drive is doubtless secret Tyrrell’s business, and more power to the winemaking team. What matters is the wine in the glass, standing ready to fulfil any role assigned to it, fruit and oak symbiotically entwined.

Gary Walsh

(for 2015 vintage) 90 Points - A new range from Tyrrell’s that sits below the Vat wines, but represents the Hunter Valley. Good branding and marketing. If were involved in such pursuits, it’s what I would have done myself. There’s a Semillon, a Shiraz and a Chardonnay.Peach, mixed citrus, gentle vanilla and cedar oak and some wheatgerm. Medium bodied, juicy fruit, but with some restraint,  limey acidity offset with a dab of cream and almond. Good length. Acid freshens the aftertaste, but does not twang. This is nicely done: meets the modern and traditional schools of Hunter Chardonnay in the middle playground.

John Lewis

(for 2015 vintage) 4 out of 5 - Part of Tyrrell’s new‘‘Baby Brothers’’ range, this good-value white is kin to the Vat 47 chardonnays. It is light gold with brassy tints and has scents of stone fruit and crushed almonds. The front of the palate introduces smooth, ripe white nectarine flavour and the middle palate brings in lemon curd, gunmetal and marzipan fruit characters integrated with restrained cashewoak. Flinty acid comes through at the finish. DRINK WITH: chicken tenderloins with mango and roasted macadamia nuts

Australian Gourmet Traveller

(for 2015 vintage) NEW FAVOURITE - Tyrrell’s Largest range of wines - a semillon, a shiraz and this delicious tangy chardonnay - has much of the class of Vat 47, but at a fraction of the price.
