Sauvignon Blanc Semillon New South Wales
Old Winery are Tyrrell's quiet achiever, the label has evolved into a well known international brand. Originally designed for palates overseas, Old Winery continue to be well received at home by local wine enthusiasts as well as the discerning industry press. Pioneers of the Semillon Sauvignon accord, Tyrrell have extended their team's reach of resources for this popular style of wine, to good vineyards throughout Australia. A fresh, revitalizing wine in the classic dry white style, showing delicate complexity and good fruit before a lovely clean finish.
Tyrrell's is a story about pioneers, men and women who transformed Australia, planted grapes and looked for better ways to make wine. From historical roots in the premiere viticultural precincts of Hunter Valley, Tyrrell has ventured across the country to locate fruit from the finest vineyards. Harvests of choice Sauvignon Blanc and estate grown Hunter Valley Semillon are treated to a separate vinification at the Pokolbin wineworks. Following inoculation by aromatic yeasts to maximise fragrant characters and a cool, temperature controlled fermentation, Old Winery is promptly assembled and bottled to retain all the vivacious, classic dry white fruit flavours.
Pale with a lime green hue. An herbaceous nose, hints of passionfruit, the Semillon provides a citrus overtone. On the palate the wine is in fine balance, perfect weight and mouthfeel. The Semillon's acid structure ensures a fresh, lively finish. A match to grilled seafood and lightly spiced faire.
