2019 Tyrrell's Vat 63 Chardonnay Semillon
A style steeped in Hunter history, with the tank-fermented semillon imparting acidity, while the barrel-fermented chardonnay evokes generosity: poached stone fruits, creamed cashew and nougat. Makes sense. Long and tensile, with the capacity to age or the offer of immediate gratification. A dry, vibrant and flavoursome white. Drink by 2027.
Ned Goodwin MW - James Halliday's Wine Companion (December 2020)
Kind of a cult wine, or something like that. Wisp of struck match, lime, white peach. tingle and zesty character, chalky feel, decent length with some bitterness on exit. Bit choppy as at now, and not quite the required richness and verve for a classic 63, though should improve with some bottle age. Drink by 2020 - 2028.
