Vat 47 Hunter Chardonnay

A continued evolution in style towards a more delicate and textural Chardonnay.

The nose shows delicate citrus and white stonefruit with a hint of oak and sulphide lift. The palate has the generosity of Chardonnay in a toned down form. The fruit is balanced well with the fresh acidity and slight textural element from extended time on yeast lees.

James Halliday Chardonnay Challenge

96 Points & Best of Hunter Valley Region

Wine Genius

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.

Andrew Corrigan, B Magazine

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.

Winestate

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.
