Originally formulated by John Charles Brown OBE in 1954 and crafted to this very day in the exact same manner, Brown Brothers flagship icon endures as one of the nation's most distinguished single vineyard wines. Mondeuse plantings were brought to Australia in the early 1900s by the legendary Francois de Castella of St Hubert fame, they have remained the most precious parcel of Brown Brothers heirloom vines since the 1920s. At Milawa, Mondeuse translates into an inky, deeply tannic wine, it forms synergies with the sweet fruit plumpness of Shiraz and statuesque elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon to coalesce into a rich, opulent style of eloquence and structure...

The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west.

The story of Tyrrell is based in no small way around the formulation of that most Australian of white wine styles, Hunter Valley Semillon. Semillon is sourced from the Short Flat and Johnno’s vineyards, established circa 1908. Vines are all dry grown and were originally planted on their own roots. Grapes are hand picked throughout the cool early hours and lightly crushed, the must is fined prior to a relatively cool fermentation. After a short period on gross lees, components are racked and matured for several months before bottling. The subsequent six years are quietly spent in a dark, temperature and humidity controlled cellaring facility at the Tyrrell Winery before release.
Mid green/ gold in colour. Ripe toasty fruit, nuts and wax characters on the bouquet. A considerable length and breadth of lemon and citrus fruit flavours on the tightly structured palate, Vat 1 is only just beginning to display toasty bottle aged complexity. Whilst drinking well now, it will continue to evolve for many years to come. Match with Moreton bay bugs, crispy skinned spatchcock or grilled whiting.
