It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo.

At Tyrrell's Hunter Valley, the beginnings of five generations winemaking can be traced to an unassuming one roomed hut. The homestead of ironbark slabs was founder Edward Tyrrell's home. Built by hand in 1858 and progressively surrounded by grape vines, the site marks the birthplace of one of Australia's great winemaking dynasties. Glenoak is a predominantly hillside vineyard that features rich and unusually coloured purple ochre clay loams yielding a scant tonnage per acre. After a relatively cool fermentation, Steven spends minimal time on yeast lees, promptly bottled to maintain its freshness. Vinified completely unwooded, without any barrrel ferments or oak maturation whatsoever. Alcohol 11.0%
Light straw hue. Complex mineral and flint aromas with a palate dominated by the length of fruit and richness of flavour. As always with semi mature Hunter semillon, there is a wonderful balance between the fresh citrus flavours of youth and the aged toasty characters that are beginning to surface. An immensely approachable, seamlessly structured wine.
