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.
A bouquet of ripe apple, citrus and tonic water with an almost light, molten-wax quality to the wine – more ample mouthfeel than suspected, with a slinky honeyed character. Tight, fresh acidity closes the wine and lingers in green apple and grapefruit flavours. So delicious. Fine even though there is richness – elegant wine this all up. One to cellar long.

This always has a personality all of its own, this year no exception. There is a greater richness and depth to the wines at most stages of their development, and this year is no exception. It's like a 30yo Rolls Royce that's been looked after well, and is just idling before moving off.
