Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Pale but bright straw-green; the unusually perfumed/citrus blossom/spice bouquet leads into an intense, juicy palate, the length drawn out by crisp, crunchy acidity; Tyrrell's hand at work as contract winemaker.

Light straw-green; a fresh, tangy semillon with a delicious combination of lemon and a little lime on the bouquet and palate; the finish is long and even; finer than the Wollstonecraft.

Semillon is highly suited to this region, and Tyrrell's maximises the quality outcome; offers a mix of citrus and mineral on bouquet and palate, almost a crossover into riesling territory. Will cellar well.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Funky, pungent bouquet - slightly closed. Simple palate with fresh citrus fruit and a slightly grippy end.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; very correct young semillon, with a vibrant palate and crisp acidity; lemon juice and cut grass sing on the back-palate and finish. All it needs is time, unless now with shellfish.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
A clean and lively wine with mineral, herb, grass and lemon peel flavours; sure to flourish with time.

WINESTATE (2006 Vintage) says
Toasty, honeyed bottle development on the nose. Oak tending to dominate the palate but its a lovely style with plenty of length and a delicate acid backbone.

WINESTATE (2005 Vintage) says
Aromas and flavours in the classic semillon fruit spectrum. Good for further ageing. Lovely toasty nose and a zesty palate thats still very grassy but has lovely toastiness developing.
