Sourced from the Stevens “Glenoak” vineyard and grown on a combination of light sand and red clay soils. The vineyard is dry grown with the earliest plantings recorded as 1911.
Tyrrell’s, Stevens Vineyard, Semillon, Hunter Valley, 2014
6 Years old and pure light lemon/green bright in the glass. Soft and expressive notes of Hunter purity with moments of forwardness from the vintage (hints of light toasty/barley sugar crystal). The power is still evident, that whisker of maturity/depth and limey citrus fruit richness providing a base to the still fresh, vibrant and precise acidity and a lightly chalky finish.
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
