  • THE BRIEF
  • Tyrrell's Hunter Valley range is quintessentially on brand and quintessentially Hunter. It showcases the key varieties of the region – Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz. This range is made to the same high standards and style as their Winemaker’s Selection Vat 1, Vat 47 and Vat 9, in essence making their Hunter Valley range the ‘baby brothers’ of these three iconic wines.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • The ‘baby brother’ to their famous Vat 9 Shiraz.

    Sourced from a small selection of our favourite shiraz blocks, the grapes were both hand and machine picked before fermentation in the traditional open top vats. The wine was then matured in older, large format French oak casks. These 2,700 litre casks highlight the fruit purity whilst making sure that oak isn’t the dominant character. 

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    A classic medium-bodied Hunter style. Deceptively ‘rich’ with a savoury pepper and charcuterie flavour mixed in good proportions with ripe red and black berry fruits. Solid colour and intensity start the wine off in the right direction, while the palate shows up-front fruit sweetness with our hallmark savoury crunchy tannins and fresh moreish finish. Vintage conditions resulted in a combination of really ripe fruit flavours balanced by the leaner savoury ones, making this wine not only very drinkable but also adding some intrigue.

    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    A brother to the '18 Hunter Valley Semillon, crushed and destemmed, open-fermented, pressed to large-format used casks. This is a rich yet tightly managed wine, placing all the emphasis on fruit, precisely that which should be done, especially in a year such as this. If you buy it now - and you should - put not less than 50% in the cellar, and have a glass on me, recalling it only cost $25. Gold medal Hunter Valley Wine Show.

    TONI PATERSON MW - THE REAL REVIEW


    The combination of the flavours and acidity give this wine a moreish quality. It is youthful and medium-weight with good fruit brightness. Excellent varietal and regional clarity. A serious wine at an affordable price

    HUON HOOKE


    Medium to full ruby colour. Walnutty, peppercorn, savoury bouquet, earthy and oak-tinged, the palate likewise savoury and drying, with some forward mellowness in the flavours and a nicely tailored tannin finish. Medium-bodied at most. Very good - especially for the money.
