Planted to the tranquil Shangri-La of a sun warmed slope in Yarra Valley, TarraWarra was established 1983 by the founders of the Sussan and Sportsgirl brands. Philanthropists and patrons of the arts, Mr and Mrs Besen, AO and AO respectively, took a highly aesthetic approach to the pursuit of viticulture. Healthy soils and happy fauna were the means to an end, good wine comes from a sound ecology, but great wine needs the inspiration of a holistic engagement with the arts. It is here at Healesville that habitues can savour the Sauvignon while immersing themselves amongst the work of our national masters. A costly collection of canvas by our merry Messrs Boyd..

Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»

The Australian winemaking industry is grateful to Leontine O'Shea, instrumental in the establishment of Mount Pleasant wines, she sent her son Maurice to France for an education in viticulture right at the outbreak of World War I, gifting him his first Hunter Valley vineyard in 1921.

Tyrrells HVD Semillon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Semillon Hunter Valley New South Wales
Hunter Valley Distillery is a continuation of the same dry creek bed as the Short Flat Vineyard that produces Vat 1 Semillon. HVD is a proven Semillon vineyard, which consistently yields parcels of fruit that reach the very high standards that are demanded for inclusion in the exalted Vat 1. In 1995, the winemakers decided to keep the HVD Semillon by itself as a separate reserve wine and it went on to become one of the most talked about releases of the last decade. HVD Semillon is rapidly gaining a solid repute as one of Australia's great white wines.

Vines planted in 1908 form the Sign Post Block, completely dry grown and all on original root stock. The property lies between two small creeks that are fed from a spring in the Brokenback range. Soils are light sandy loam going down into coarse river sand. The vines are rarely stressed and their roots are almost continuously in water. Fruit is crushed but not de-stemmed and placed through a Miller airbag press. Juices are centrifuged after pressing and fermented following inoculation by an old strain of Tyrrell's yeast over the course of a fortnight. HVD is winemaking in its purest form, parcels are treated to a short time on gross lees prior to racking, assembling and preparation for bottling. Alcohol 11.0%
Bright straw colour. Floral fruit in youth, an immediate impact of big, soft baked notes on the nose and palate which moves towards deeper biscuit characters with age. The palate is mellow with softer acids than most other Tyrrell Hunter Valley Semillon. A fine match to gourmandise white meats and poultry, truffle recipes or fine cheese.
