Tyrrells Hunter Valley Semillon is the little brother to Tyrrells iconic Hunter Valley Semillon, the VAT 1. According to Jancis Robinson, “Semillon is Australia’s unique gift to the world”

Tyrrells Wines was founded by Edward Tyrrell in 1858 and, since then, it has grown into one of the largest and most prestigious wine companies in Australia. From a base of 60 acres of vines in the Hunter Valley, the estate has grown to 900 acres of premium vineyards in Limestone Coast, McLaren Vale in South Australia and the Heathcote region in Victoria. Today Tyrrells wines is in the hands of 4th generation owner Bruce Tyrrell and family who continue to produce top quality wines and build on the success if their forebears.

The grapes for the Tyrrells Hunter Valley Semillon come principally from Tyrrell’s HVD Vineyard.  The HVD vineyard is situated between two dry creek beds and features fine sandy soils over coarse river sand. It is one of the estate’s higher cropping Semillon vineyards. 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 modern approachable style of Hunter Valley Semillon which is delicious when released but will age many years.
