How's it taste?

Textbook modern Hunter Valley Chardonnay, the wine is medium in colour with nice green hues. The nose shows a great mixture citrus, white stone fruit, some oak spice as well as just a hint of solids complexity. The palate is medium bodied with a great fruit intensity and texture through the mid palate with soft acid on the finish.

How was it made?

The ‘baby brother’ to our famous Vat 47 Chardonnay.

A combination of basket pressing and light pressing in an air bag press meant only the very best free run juice was used. After cold settling for 2 days the juice began fermentation in stainless steel tanks before being transferred to mostly older French oak barriques. A small portion was left to mature in tank to keep a fresher and un-oaked portion for the blend. The wine also spent all of its time of yeast lees to gain texture and complexity.

Our Hunter Valley range is quintessentially Tyrrell’s and quintessentially Hunter. It showcases the key varieties of the region – Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz. This range is made to the same high standards and style as our 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.
