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.
From the oldest and best blocks on the Ashman property, hand-picked and vineyard-sorted, each block vinified separately in open vats, maturation in new and 1yo 2700l French casks until the blend assembled in Dec ‘19, then given a further 5 months before bottling. This is a woven tapestry of black fruits studded with sparks of red. Soars after a challenging bouquet.
