Tyrrell's Wines

Tyrrell’s Vat 1 Semillon 2016, Hunter Valley, NSW

by | Feb 13, 2022

Expressive pear skin and citrus note with a slight herbal edge. Tight, lean racy palate with mouth tingling acidity. Fine herb , nuts and lemon flavours. Primary fruit driven showing no signs of age. Enjoyable drinking now but will obviously go the distance in the Australian Hunter Valley style. A true classic.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
