Origins

The 2023 Tyrrells Hunter Valley Semillon is a standout vintage from one of Australia's most esteemed wine regions. The grapes for this vintage were sourced from Tyrrells' finest vineyards in the Hunter Valley, particularly from their celebrated HVD (Hunter Valley Distillery) vineyard.

Tasting Notes

The palate is equally impressive, displaying a crisp and refreshing acidity that balances perfectly with the wine's mineral undertones. Flavors of citrus fruits dominate, with a lingering finish that reveals nuances of lanolin and a touch of honey. Despite its youthful vibrancy, this Semillon has the potential to age gracefully, developing richer and more complex flavors over time.
