Established in 1858 by English immigrant Edward Tyrrell, Tyrrell’s Wines is one of Australia’s pre-eminent family owned wine companies with vineyards extending from their historic home in the Hunter Valley to the Limestone Coast (SA) and Heathcote (VIC). Headed up by fourth generation family member Bruce Tyrrell, Tyrrell’s is home to some of Australia’s most awarded wines including the iconic Vat 1 Semillon. Since 1971, Tyrrell’s has been awarded over 5,000 trophies and medals and in 2010 was named “Winery of the Year” in James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion. With the fifth generation, Chris, Jane and John, involved in the business, Tyrrell’s will continue to remain family owned with the simple philosophy of producing high quality wine that people love to drink.
Extremely perfumed with strawberry and cherry aromas and vanilla and cream undertones. Full body. Creamy and sexy with round and soft tannins. Hints of toasted oak. Round and mouth-filling. Vines planted in 1892. Drink or hold. Screw cap. Rating: 94 Points; James Suckling
Juicy purple smelling wine, but also with ripe blue fruit, a slight earthiness, and a distinctly come-hither style – the 8 Acres is bringing sexy back. Supple, creamy flavour and ripe round tannin, a delicious perfume, and a smooth long finish, with just a hint of iodine. Will be a knock-out with careful cellaring. Tasted: May 19; Alcohol: 14%; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2022-2040+; Rated: 96 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
