Tyrrells HVD Single Vineyard Semillon 2010
The vines in the HVD vineyard were planted in 1908 and form the “Sign Post Block”. The vineyard lies between two small creeks that are fed from a spring in the Brokenback range. The vines are rarely stressed and their roots are almost continuously in water. Great soil moisture from the previous growing season meant that the vineyard saw it’s best season in years. Kind weather over Christmas ensured even ripening and flavour development in the bunches. Classic HVD Semillon showing lifted floral aromatics and tightly structured palate with considerable length and a great balance with it’s clean, soft acid structure.
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.

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. Rating: 94 Points; Tyson Stelzer
