Edward Tyrrell planted his first vines in 1858 after receiving a grant over poor pasture land in the lee of Brokenback Range. Tyrrell can lay claim to being one of the only companies in the world to have inaugurated a distinctive genre of wine, Hunter Valley Semillon. At just over four hectares and completely dry grown, Belford was established 1933 to very fine sandy loams, almost talcum powder in consistency. Grapes are all hand picked, lightly crushed and coolly fermented, after a term on gross lees, Belford is racked and treated to an unoaked maturation before bottling. Alcohol 11.0%
 
Straw coloured. A classic Hunter Semillon showing a tightly structured palate with considerable length and breadth of citrus honey flavours.

Tyrrells HVD Semillon
Hunter Valley
Available by the dozen
Hunter Valley Distillery is a continuation of the same dry creek bed as the Short Flat Vineyard that produces Vat 1 Semillon. HVD is a proven Semillon vineyard, which consistently yields parcels of fruit that reach the very high standards that are demanded for inclusion in the exalted Vat 1. In 1995, the winemakers decided to keep the HVD Semillon by itself as a separate reserve wine and it went on to become one of the most talked about releases of the last decade. HVD Semillon is rapidly gaining a solid repute as one of Australia's great white wines.

Vines planted in 1908 form the Sign Post Block, completely dry grown and all on original root stock. The property lies between two small creeks that are fed from a spring in the Brokenback range. Soils are light sandy loam going down into coarse river sand. The vines are rarely stressed and their roots are almost continuously in water. Fruit is crushed but not de-stemmed and placed through a Miller airbag press. Juices are centrifuged after pressing and fermented following inoculation by an old strain of Tyrrell's yeast over the course of a fortnight. HVD is winemaking in its purest form, parcels are treated to a short time on gross lees prior to racking, assembling and preparation for bottling. Alcohol 11.0%
 
Bright straw colour. Floral fruit in youth, an immediate impact of big, soft baked notes on the nose and palate which moves towards deeper biscuit characters with age.

At Tyrrell's Hunter Valley, the beginnings of five generations winemaking can be traced to an unassuming one roomed hut. The homestead of ironbark slabs was founder Edward Tyrrell's home. Built by hand in 1858 and progressively surrounded by grape vines, the site marks the birthplace of one of Australia's great winemaking dynasties. Glenoak is a predominantly hillside vineyard that features rich and unusually coloured purple ochre clay loams yielding a scant tonnage per acre. After a relatively cool fermentation, Steven spends minimal time on yeast lees, promptly bottled to maintain its freshness. Vinified completely unwooded, without any barrrel ferments or oak maturation whatsoever. Alcohol 11.0%
 
Light straw hue. Complex mineral and flint aromas with a palate dominated by the length of fruit and richness of flavour. As always with semi mature Hunter semillon, there is a wonderful balance between the fresh citrus flavours of youth and the aged toasty characters that are beginning to surface. An immensely approachable, seamlessly structured wine.

The story of Tyrrell is based in no small way around the formulation of that most Australian of white wine styles, Hunter Valley Semillon. Semillon is sourced from the Short Flat and Johnno’s vineyards, established circa 1908. Vines are all dry grown and were originally planted on their own roots. Grapes are hand picked throughout the cool early hours and lightly crushed, the must is fined prior to a relatively cool fermentation. After a short period on gross lees, components are racked and matured for several months before bottling. The subsequent six years are quietly spent in a dark, temperature and humidity controlled cellaring facility at the Tyrrell Winery before release. Alcohol 12.0%
 
Mid green/ gold in colour. Ripe toasty fruit, nuts and wax characters on the bouquet. A considerable length and breadth of lemon and citrus fruit flavours on the tightly structured palate, Vat 1 is only just beginning to display toasty bottle aged complexity. Whilst drinking well now, it will continue to evolve for many years to come. Match with Moreton bay bugs, crispy skinned spatchcock or grilled whiting.
The story of Tyrrell's Wines is inextricably linked to the story of wine in Australia

It is a story about pioneers, men and women who transformed the Hunter Valley of NSW, planted grapes there, and looked for better ways to make wine. English immigrant Edward Tyrrell planted his first vines in the Hunter Valley in 1858 establishing Tyrrell's Wines after receiving a land grant in apparently poor pastureland in the lee of the Hunter Valley's Brokenback range.

Tyrrells

His first vintage was in 1864 and by the turn of the century the land had became recognised as some of the Hunter Valley's finest vineyard land. The Hunter Valley was ideal for the production of premium wines, notably Shiraz in the reds and Semillon in the whites. Both made table wines of power and distinction, with the ability to age beautifully in the bottle. These two varieties provided the basis for the beginning of the Tyrrells premium Winemakers Selection Range.

Tyrrell's vineyards are established in Australia's premium wine growing regions - McLaren Vale, Limestone Coast and Heathcote - but still call the Hunter Valley home. Most of the distinguished Tyrrell Hunter Valley wines are grown at the Pokolbin and Ashmans Vvineyards in the heart of the Lower Hunter Valley, very near the winery itself.

Today Tyrrell's are a truly national winemaker, exporting Tyrrell's wines around the globe

These are all non-irrigated, dry grown vineyards, dependant entirely on 750mm of rainfall a year. Yields are very low from these vines, but the fruit is of the highest possible quality. Vines are characteristically short, (often less than one metre tall) and gnarled.

This clever design by mother nature together with experienced vineyard management has ensured that over the generations the vines have grown to efficiently distribute the precious and rare moisture to the grape bunches. The Lower Hunter does actually have extensive subterranean water pockets, but due to the proximity to the coast and ocean, this water is too high in salinity to be used on vines. Vines on Tyrrells original blocks around Ashmans winery are amongst the oldest in the Hunter Valley at 70 to 120 years old.

The Tyrrell's Glenbawn Estate Vineyard was planted in the late 1960's and the winery completed for the 1974 vintage. The area has a lower average rainfall than the Lower Hunter Valley, but close proximity to Lake Glenbawn on the Hunter River provides a reliable source of water for drip irrigation. Machine harvesting of these vineyards makes the most of cooler temperatures at night. The winery now processes over 2500 tonnes of fruit and must during the vintage period. During the year blended products or parcels of wine are transported by tanker to the Ashman's winery in Pokolbin for bottling, blending or further oak maturation.

The Heathcote area in Central Victoria is fast becoming known as one of Australia's superstar wine growing areas. Spotting this potential some years ago, Bruce Tyrrell secured over 80 acres of prime land around the Mt Camel range. Shiraz wines of unimaginable depth of colour and extreme weight of fruit are now the hallmarks of this relatively new region. The relatively young vines upon this particular vineyard are planted in the russet red cambrian soil, found at the foot of Mt Carmel at the Southern end of the Colbinabbin Range. Wines are relatively low yielding but produce extremely high quality grapes. Climate is warm, dry and reliable from year to year.

Tyrrells Limestone Coast vineyards experience less rainfall and more sunshine than other coastal vineyards

Generous cloud cover and mild temperatures are common throughout the area, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly. The fruit here is machine harvested and partially machine pruned, as human pickers and pruners are hard to come by in this winegrowing region's inhospitable environment. Must juice is then transported back to Ashman's Winery in the Hunter to complete its transformation into wine. The terra rossa soil is found in patches throughout the Limestone Coast area.

A new 1000 tonne crushing facility was built at Tyrrell's McLaren Vale vineyard in time for the 1997 harvest. Juice is transported back to Ashmans in the Hunter Valley to complete its transformation into finished wine. Late 1998 has seen the removal of Pedro Ximines grapes (sold for fortified wine) replaced with 10 acres of new Cabernet Sauvignon. McLaren Vale is a region rich with assorted soil types. As a result of this variety nearly all grape varieties flourish in the region. Summer rainfall is low, so irrigation is a necessity.
