Overview

The Lost Block range was born when an impending storm forced the Tyrrell's vineyard crew to abandon a prized block of Hunter semillon to pick less storm resilient grapes. The 'lost' block was eventually picked days later and the winemaking team were so impressed with the characters of the finished wine, it was decided to give it a label of its own.

Over the years, the range has expanded to include wines from some of Australia's best known regions, each crafted in a 'drink now' style - soft and approachable, with the same fresh, vibrant fruit characters that made Lost Block Semillon such a success.

Expert Reviews

Back in the 90s, the Tyrrell family expanded beyond their Hunter base, establishing a vineyard at Heathcote, Victoria, and acquiring the St Mary’s Vineyard on the Cave Range, 15 kilometers west of Coonawarra. Though excluded from that illustrious appellation, the wines from St Mary’s including Lost Block Cabernet Sauvignon, bear a striking resemblance to Coonawarra’s, with ripe-berry varietal character and elegant structure – in this instance, approachable and ready to drink now.
