Tyrrell's Wines Hunter Valley Semillon 2017

Our Price: $19.99 / bottle
(RRP $25.00)

Case: 6 bottles

Sourced from a small selection of our 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.

  • Vintage Conditions The 2017 Semillon vintage was one of the best in recent memory and
    has produced wines of the highest quality. Solid rains in winter and
    spring meant the vines had constant access to water and the warmer
    weather in the new year meant all of the fruit was in near perfect
    condition and ripeness when it was harvested.
    Winemaker’s Notes Sourced entirely from
    our HVD Vineyard, the
    grapes were machine
    picked in the cool of
    the night 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.

  • RALPH KYTE-POWELL, SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
    94 Points - A classic regional wine from a great maker, this semillon has a ripe, appealing nose of unusual concentration. Apple, lemon, melon and wax meet the nose, and it tastes deliciously intense and zesty. (Screw cap; 11 per cent alcohol). Ageing? Drink over six years. Food idea: Grilled fish with lemon and pepper sauce.

    GARY WALSH, WINE FRONT
    94 Points - Lemon barley, lemongrass, talc and ester perfume. There’s a softness and roundness to the acidity here that’s very appealing, which along with ample lemon/lime flavour and a delightful chalky texture, makes it immediately appealing. It’s long too. A lot of wine for your money here.
