Tyrells are a benchmark producer of Hunter Valley semillon, and this wine is the “baby brother” of Tyrell’s more famous Vat 1 Hunter semillon. In the glass, it has aromatics of lemon and bees wax. The palate has a nip of acidity and good length. The alcohol is only 11%. A good release that can be approached now, but should age for a decade or more. Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 11%. Price: $20.
