Overview

Sourced from the younger blocks on and around the Tyrrell’s property of a similar pedigree to our Vat 47 Chardonnay, including our HVD vineyard with a total average vine age of approx 35 years. Dominating soil types are light sandy loams ideal for Hunter Chardonnay.

The 2017 vintage was one of the best in recent memory and has produced wines of the highest quality. Solid rains in winter and spring meant the vines had constant access to water and the warmer weather in the new year meant all of the fruit was in near perfect condition and ripeness when it was harvested.

Expert Reviews

Rating 91 Ned Goodwin Published 01 August 2018

Made to the same exacting standards at the Vat 47 flagship, this baby sibling is nevertheless looser knit across a breezy sway of vanilla pod oak, nougatine and peachy fruit flavours, with some truffled lees work providing mineral tension. Fully flavoured and ready to roll.

Winery Tasting Notes

Textbook modern Hunter Valley Chardonnay, the wine is medium in colour with nice green hues. The nose shows a great mixture citrus, white stone fruit, some oak spice as well as just a hint of solids complexity. The palate is medium bodied with a great fruit intensity and texture through the mid palate with soft acid on the finish.
