The ‘baby brother’ to Tyrrell’s famous Vat 1 Semillon, the Hunter Valley Semillon is made to the same high standards that their flagship Shiraz receives. The grapes are sourced entirely from their HVD (Hunter Valley Distillery) Vineyard. A lifted nose showing citrus freshness, the palate continues with fresh citrus and concentrated grapefruit flavours.
Sourced almost entirely from our HVD vineyard. The HVD vineyard is situated between two dry creek beds and features fine sandy soils over coarse river sand. Generally one of our higher cropping Semillon vineyards.
The 2019 vintage in the Hunter Valley was another high quality year across all varieties and is a stellar follow up to 2018. Continued dry conditions meant cropping levels were slightly lower than normal however all of the fruit was in perfect condition.
The grapes were handpicked and sorted in the vineyard. Once arriving at the winery the fruit was very lightly crushed and pressed with a small percentage of stalks. After a relatively cool fermentation, the wine spent a minimal time on yeast lees before being bottled early to maintain its freshness. No oak fermentation or maturation.
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.
