Winemaker Notes

This is a classic Hunter Valley Semillon showing a tightly structured palate with considerable length and breadth of citrus fruit flavors. This wine is only just beginning to evolve and show a hint of toasty, bottle aged complexity. An iconic Australian wine from what is a classic vintage for Hunter Valley Semillon.

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Before I explain what this tastes like, it is important to note that between the 2017 and the 2006, there is very little color difference in the glass. Here, you get green glints, pale straw lemon, and it's packed (and I mean PACKED) with flavor. So, this 2013 Vat 1 Semillon is closed on the nose, reduced to preserved lemon rind, brine, quinine and crushed shells. Quiet things. In the mouth, this Zen mood continues; it unfurls in a languid fashion, slowly spooling white tea, apple skins, juniper, creamed honey and beeswax. If this wine had a sound, it would be the cast of a baited, weighted fishing line, right before it *plonks* into the water. Rating: 96+

JS 94
James Suckling
Very subtle aromas of sliced lemon, apple and pear. Steel too. Full body, bright acidity and a vivid finish. Love the focus and beauty to this. Creamy mouth feel.
WS 92
Wine Spectator

Fresh, crisp citrus and pear flavors are moving into more savory, rich and mature accents of honey, saline and beeswax. Perfectly balanced and powerful on the finish. Drink now through 2030.

In 1858, Edward Tyrrell planted his first vines in the Hunter Valley. In 1959, Murray Tyrrell took control of the winery and started producing Tyrrell’s wines under their own labels. Tyrrell’s pioneered Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Australia and quickly received international recognition. While remaining a family company, Tyrrell’s has reached out to larger wine markets: in recent years, it has expanded its traditional Hunter Valley vineyard base to other famous vineyard areas in Australia.

Most admired for citrus-driven, mineral-rich and often age-worthy Semillon wines, Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s oldest wine regions and was home to its very first commercial vineyards. The region’s warm summer nights coupled with autumn cloud cover and cool sea breezes allow full ripening and healthy acidity levels for Semillon; its diverse soils of volcanic basalt and white alluvial sands promote the development of Semillon’s delicate aromas. Hunter Valley Semillons can certainly be enjoyed in their youth but with 10 to 20 years in the cellar, the best examples develop intriguing notes of honey, browned butter and roasted nuts.

Chardonnay and Shiraz also do well in Hunter Valley.

Sémillon has the power to create wines with considerable structure, depth and length that will improve for several decades. It is the perfect partner to the vivdly aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. Sémillon especially shines in the Bordeaux region of Sauternes, which produces some of the world’s greatest sweet wines. Somm Secret—Sémillon was so common in South Africa in the 1820s, covering 93% of the country’s vineyard area, it was simply referred to as Wyndruif, or “wine grape.”
