The Tyrrell's Story
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.
Why's this wine for you?

We don't know about you but sometimes cellaring wine till optimum drinking window requires way too much patience. Thankfully Tyrrell’s have thought of this already.

Whilst we wait for our Vat 1 to tick by at a glacial pace in the depth of our cellars, we can celebrate with ths show stopping Steven Single Vineyard Semillon 2016 right now! Whoop whoop!

From a dry-grown vineyard planted in 1911, the site combines light sand and denser red clay soils optimising that kaffir lime and citrus oil aromatic we know and love followed by richer yellow plum and lime jam flavours on the palate.

We are firm believers that Semillon should be drunk on most days and we think the Steven Vineyard is built just for that.

How's it taste?
Stevens Semillon was the first wine in what we now know as our single vineyard range.The fruit is taken from Neil Stevens’ Glenoak vineyard. It shares the same ancient age as our other semillon vineyards but the unique character of this vineyard is the soil. Unlike our other semillon vineyards that feature light, sandy loams, the Stevens vineyard features a combination of light sandy loams as well as a transitional darker, heavier soil. The hallmark of this vineyard is always the intense citrus lift with its almost Riesling-like mineral edge. The palate is tightly bound and has a fruit profile that is tight, elegant, and impeccably long.

Some more generous lemon and light stone fruits on the nose here, this has a lot to offer, with a rich nectarine, lemon and lime nose and palate, slippery, gently fleshy and very nicely wrapped into the finish. Drink now or age mid-term.

Crisp and zesty style, kind of skittish and certainly energetic. Falls more towards the lime flavour spectrum more than lemon, and has some slight grassy notes, but they add interest rather than detract. Finish is neat and tangy. Tasted over two days, and it looks better today than it did yesterday, which is always encouraging.

Ned Goodwin - Halliday's Wine Companion
The only one of these single-vineyard expressions to be machine harvested. Still dry grown. Still an exemplary site, sand and red clay. The broader of the 3 Tyrell's single-vineyard semillons, with a more verdant nose of nettle and greengage, melding with lemon zest, camphor and bath salts. The flavours ease their way across the palate, the stream of filigreed acidity drawing a long arc. My assistant Emi and I both liked this for its immediacy. Delicious from the first sip, albeit, lacking the drive and depth of its siblings. The best of the 3 to breach early.
