This wine region is made up of the upper Hunter and lower Hunter, and is linked by the Hunter River. Settlement commenced in the Hunter Valley region in 1826. In the 20th century, expansion occurred slowly until the boom period of the 1960s and 1970s. The majority of the vineyards in the lower Hunter are situated on the extreme southern side of what is a broad and relatively flat valley nestled into the foothills of the Brokenback Range.

The terrain is gently to markedly undulating, bordered to the north, west and south-west by the Great Dividing Range. The summer climate in the Hunter is humid, with high cloud cover and high rainfall. A break in the Great Dividing Range allows summer sea breezes to penetrate the valley. Rainfall is often highest just prior to and during harvest in February.

The vintage period is one of the earliest and shortest in Australia with harvest commencing in late January in the lower Hunter. Yields are generally low so grape quality is good, and there is an inexplicable affinity between the terroir and the semillon and shiraz grapes for which the area is justly renowned.

With our first plantings in 1879, Pokolbin remains the home of Tyrrell’s vineyards and has become recognised as some of the Hunter Valley’s finest vineyard land and the basis for development of our premium wines.

Expert Reviews

Rating 96 - Ned Goodwin Published 01 August 2018 Australian Wine Companion

Always delicious, this is as bright of stone fruit aromas as its Belford sibling, albeit, more tightly bound to cylinders of leesy mineral crunch, vanillin oak and ginger to toasted hazelnut flavours, with the benefit of some bottle age imparting further textural intrigue. This lingers long. A superb Vat 47, from a superlative vintage.

Winery Tasting Notes

Incredibly youthful colour, the wine shows an amazing length of flavour and mouth feel, with strong, clean acid on the finish and some secondary characters derived from the slight solids ferment. A great example of modern Hunter Valley chardonnay with its citrus/acid backbone, which is a benefit of no malolactic fermentation.
