  • THE BRIEF
  • The 1858 Semillon is the little brother to the iconic Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon. Like the Vat 1, the 1858 comes from a selection of some of Tyrrell's top Semillon vineyards in the Hunter Valley, with an average vine age of 40 years. It is fermented in stainless steel, giving it a lifted, fresh citrus nose with a zingy palate. Good for drinking while it is young, this wine goes really well with seafood and salad on a warm day.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Headed up by Bruce Tyrrell, the winery is home to some of Australia’s most awarded wines including the renowned Vat 1 Semillon. Sourced from a small selection of Tyrrell’s favourite Semillon blocks, the grapes were both hand and machine picked before gentle pressing and fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine then spent a few months on yeast lees to gain extra complexity and mouth feel.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    A lifted nose showing citrus freshness, the palate continues with fresh citrus and concentrated grapefruit flavours. The palate is light to medium bodied with a perfect balance of fruit and soft acid. In a vintage of this quality, all of our Semillon ended up with an "A" grade and we are incredibly pleased with the release of this Hunter Valley Semillon, easily our best yet.

    Expressing varietal purity and regional typicity, this splendid offering shows lemon peel, lime cordial and dried grass notes on the nose, leading to a concentrated yet restrained palate that is subtle, fine and lingering. It is sleek and sharp with a terrific structure for graceful development. At its best: 2020 to 2028.
