If there is one word that describes HVD, it's 'softness'.
About The Wine
The HVD Semillon is made from a select parcel of fruit planted on the old Hunter Valley Distillery site in 1908.
These old vines produce luxurious Semillon with a richness and softness that is unique to the site. It's a wine that ages superbly out to 15 or 20 years from vintage but is equally easy to enjoy as a younger wine.
The HVD vineyard is on song in this release. One for now or for the cellar, that's the beauty of HVD.
Tyrrell's is one of Australia's oldest and most prestigious family-owned wineries.
With a rich, decorated history stretching back to 1858, the Tyrrell family are custodians of some of the finest (and oldest) vineyards in the Hunter Valley, and indeed, the world.
Their top releases of Shiraz, Semillon, and Chardonnay are highly collectable and considered by many as some of the truest regional examples of these varieties.
As the talented Chris Tyrrell takes his place in the cellar, just as four generations of Tyrrell men have before him, this family institution is set to remain one of the most important bastions of quality Australian wine for many years to come.
