  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • The 1908 block at the HVD Vineyard was hand picked and basket pressed, with the juice cold settled for four days before fermentation began in stainless steel tanks. The fermenting juice was then transferred to French oak barriques, 30% of which were new.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    The wine is balanced between primary Chardonnay fruit flavours and secondary flavours derived from the minimal solids ferment and extended yeast lees contact, resulting in this wine's texture and mouth feel.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Tyrrell's is an iconic Hunter Valley winery renowned for producing some of Australia’s greatest wines. Tyrrell's was established by English immigrant, Edward Tyrrell in 1858 at the foot of New South Wales’ striking Brokenback Range. Today, Tyrrell's is headed up by 4th generation winemaker, Bruce Tyrrell, with the 5th generation hot on his heels! Tyrrell's produces a broad array of wine varieties and styles, ranging from the inexpensive to the luxurious. They have championed the Semillon variety, with their flagship, of course, being the world-renowned Vat 1. They strive to create wines of individual character, flavour and integrity. 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.

    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    The vines were planted in 1908, hand-picked, crushed and basket-pressed. This is the oldest single vineyard chardonnay in Australia, and very likely the world. The intensity of the wine catches you by surprise with a saline underlay to the white peach flavours. Stands second to Vat 47 in my opinion.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    The colour is light and the bouquet very shy and restrained, with little fruit showing, just a touch of reduction. The wine is lean and tight, restrained and somewhat in its shell. It could repay a little more time. It is tight with latent intensity, and seems to have the makings of a very good chardonnay.

    TONI PATERSON MW - THE REAL REVIEW


    Abundant freshness with pristine lemon and grapefruit flavours. The wine is in a primary stage, but the bones are magnificent. It will evolve more complexity with time in the bottle, but it has lovely freshness, brightness and texture right now
