2015 Tyrrell's Hunter Valley Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes

Some of our favorite blocks were selected for this wine. The nose is citrus with a slight hint of oak, the palate is weighted and generous and has the texture and complexities associated with time on lees. A rich and fresh Chardonnay, with subtle cream undertones, making it a perfect companion to chicken or pasta dishes. Excellent drinking upon release and will develop in complexity with short term bottle age.

The ‘baby brother’ to our famous Vat 47 Chardonnay, our Hunter Valley Chardonnay is made to the same high standards that our flagship Chardonnay receives.

An almost perfect growing season was experienced for the 2014 vintage, one of the best in recent memory. This meant that all of the fruit we harvested was in pristine condition and had beautiful flavour.

Sourced from a small selection of our favourite Chardonnay blocks, the grapes were both hand and machine picked before gentle pressing and fermentation. The wine was matured in new and older French oak barriques, and spent all of this time on yeast lees to give the palate added complexity and texture.

2015 Tyrrell's Hunter Valley Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Huon Hooke (2016 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow colour, bright. The bouquet is creamy lees-driven and very charming, fresh and inviting. A subtle trace of toasted almond. The palate is delicate, refined and soft-textured. A delightfully subtle, fine and harmonious Chardonnay. Oak is almost invisible. It doesn't have great power or length but scores well for drinkability.
