"Nutty, leesy, burnt match. Silky texture, lemony and a nice weight."

Felix Gentle

"Lime and flint. Loads of oyster shell minerality - from one of the best Semillon producers in the country"

Felix Gentle

From one of Australia’s most iconic family-owned wineries. The 1858 Semillon is the little brother to the iconic Tyrrell’s Vat 1 Semillon. 

Like the Vat 1, the 1858 comes from a selection of some of Tyrrell’s top Semillon vineyards in the Hunter Valley, with an average vine age of 40 years.

A delicious drink now, and with the potential to age for up to a decade, this is a Hunter bargain.

Expert Reviews

Expressing varietal purity and regional typicity, this splendid offering shows lemon peel, lime cordial and dried grass notes on the nose, leading to a concentrated yet restrained palate that is subtle, fine and lingering. It is sleek and sharp with a terrific structure for graceful development. At its best: 2020 to 2028. 94 points - Sam Kim

How's it taste?

Green apple and citrus on the nose with a palate of slightly tart green apples and then lots of acidity, with a structure to ensure ageing

How was it made?

Headed up by Bruce Tyrrell, the winery is home to some of Australia’s most awarded wines including the renowned Vat 1 Semillon. Sourced from a small selection of Tyrrell’s 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.

Who made it?

A really great wine deal must must be accompanied by great value. There is nothing better than getting an incredible bottle of wine for a fraction of what similar quality wines sell for. My recommendations gives you the very best "Value for money" wines at different pricepoints.
