HVD stands for Hunter Valley Distillery and the vineyard is grown on brown sandy clay loam, and first planted in 1908.
Tyrrell’s, HVD Vineyard, Semillon, Hunter Valley, 2014
Delicate but adamant. Leafy lime citrus, lemon verbena, vanilla flower a touch of spiced sweaty apple. Primary, quiet, flesh yet with finesse. Such well reined acidity: still so balanced and just starting to integrate. A wine of presence and longevity.
Rating: 19/20 (95/100)
