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 great balanced between fruit acid and oak hints at the quality of the wine and the vintage. The wine has the typical seamless Vat 47 palate with great fruit length and a clean acid finish. Entirely hand picked with a proportion also being basket pressed. After cold settling the juice was partially fermented in stianless steel before being transferred into new, one and two year old French oak barriques where it was matured on yeast lees for 6 months prior to blending and bottling.

Smooth and glossy texture, but refined too, with fine acidity, lime and peach, a dusting of spice, vanilla and cashew. It’s lively, balanced, runs from front to back palate without raising a sweat, so calm and composed, and closes long and juicy, a wee bit of dried herb and green olive in the aftertaste. Even as a young wine, you just want to drink the hell out of it. Yes. Tasted: May 2020; Alcohol: 13%; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2030; Rated: 95 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
