Sourced from a small selection of some of Tyrrell’s top Semillon vineyards around the Hunter Valley, most of which are dry grown and have an average vine age of 40 years. The 2022 vintage, in many ways, was a mirror of 2021. With above average rainfall in the winter months, the vines were set up perfectly for the growing season. Cooler temperatures over the summer period meant that there was no rush to begin harvest and we began about a seven to ten days later than normal. All of the fruit was in remarkable condition with intense fruit flavours coupled with high natural acidity. The grapes were machine picked in the cool of the night before gentle pressing and fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine then spent a short amount of time on yeast lees to gain extra complexity and mouth feel.
Brilliant water like colour with a greenish tinged outskirts. Fragrant lime and green apple scents are followed by citrus, fresh herb and stony mineral notes. Intense lime, green apple and citrus fruits burst across the mouth watering palate which is underpinned by crisp, juicy acidity. Wet slate and mineral characters are threaded through the long scrumptious aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 10.8%
