Tyrrell's Hunter Valley Semillon 2017
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.
SOLD OUT - Tyrrell's Hunter Valley Semillon 2018 vintage is now available here.
This range is made to the same high standards and style as our flagship Winemaker’s Selection Vat 1, Vat 47 and Vat 9, in essence making our Hunter Valley range the ‘baby brothers’ of these three iconic wines.
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.
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.
Picked between 30th January and the 4th February 2017, bottled 1st May 2017. Winery Notes
