Tyrrell's Old Winery Chardonnay

Tyrrell’s Old Winery Chardonnay

Tyrrell’s Old Winery Chardonnay

The Old Winery Chardonnay is a modern take on a traditional Chardonnay style. We picked the grapes a little earlier than usual to capture varietal freshness offering crisp, mouth-watering natural acidity, then matured it on yeast lees to add a little extra texture and complexity. It spent a relatively short time in French oak to maintain that wonderful freshness. The result is an easy-drinking, medium-bodied wine that offers aromas of stone fruit with a subtle hint of vanilla from the oak influence. The palate is generously flavoured with peach and citrus, rounded off with a clean, crisp finish. Serve slightly chilled to let the aromas and flavours sing. An ideal accompaniment to a wide variety of dishes, including seafood, vegetarian, chicken and pasta with a creamy sauce.

Named after the Tyrrell’s historic winery in the Hunter Valley, which was built in 1863 for the first vintage in 1864. A classic range of wines produced using fruit from premium Australian wine regions, Old Winery delivers distinctive varietal character and outstanding quality synonymous with the Tyrrell’s name. Designed for immediate enjoyment, the Old Winery promise is to provide a quality wine to suit every palate preference at a
refreshingly affordable price.

Winemaker’s Notes
The Old Winery Chardonnay is a modern take on traditional Chardonnay style. Harvested slightly earlier to maintain natural acidity and freshness, the wine received minimal oak and was matured on yeast lees to gain
extra texture and complexity.
Tasting Notes
A medium bodied wine with aromas of stone fruit and subtle vanillin oak. The palate is generously flavoured with white peach citrus characters and a clean, crisp finish.
Serving Suggestion
Serve slightly chilled. An ideal accompaniment to a wide variety of cuisines such as seafood, vegetarian, chicken and creamy sauce pasta dishes.

Tyrrell's Wines

“The story of Tyrrell’s Wines is inextricably linked to the story of wine in Australia. It is a story about pioneers, men and women who transformed the Hunter Valley of NSW, planted grapes there and looked for better ways to make wine.
The Hunter Valley was ideal for the production of premium wines, notably Shiraz in the reds and Semillon in the whites. Both made table wines of power and distinction, with the ability to age beautifully in the bottle. These two varieties provided the basis for the beginning of the Tyrrell’s premium Winemaker’s Selection Range.”

Tyrrell’s is as much a part of the fabric of the Hunter Valley as the Semillon and Shiraz vines we’ve been nurturing since our founder, English-immigrant Edward Tyrrell, first planted them during the mid-19th century.

Having lived and breathed wine growing and winemaking in the Hunter Valley for more than 160 years, we’ve amassed an unrivalled knowledge of what makes the Hunter one of Australia’s, and indeed the world’s, greatest winegrowing regions.

Over those 160-plus years, Tyrrell’s has been a constant in both the Hunter Valley and Australian wine industries. We helped to pioneer what are now two of Australia’s favourite wine varieties – Chardonnay and Pinot Noir – and have been instrumental in establishing Hunter Valley Semillon as one of the world’s iconic wine styles. Our Vat 1 Semillon is Australia’s most awarded white wine, having won almost 5,500 medals and more than 330 trophies.

Tyrrell’s was among the founding members of Australia’s First Families of Wine, an organisation that helps to build awareness of premium Australian wines and their heritage. With a fifth generation now involved in the business, Tyrrell’s will continue to remain family run, with each generation focused on passing the business to the next in better condition than they received it, all the while being guided by Edward Tyrrell’s motto: “Nothing is great unless it is good.”

New South Wales

The Hunter Region is the premium wine region of New South Wales and one of Australia’s most well-known, and historically important wine regions. Distinctive styles of Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz are the hallmark of this region. James Busby the man credited with bringing the vine to Australia was associated with the Hunter Valley through his brother-in-law William Kelman. Kelman is thought to be the first to plant vines in the Hunter. George Wyndham planted grapes in 1832. Penfolds bought the property in 1904 naming it Wyndham Estate. Dr Henry Lindeman purchased land around Raymond Terrace in the 1830s. So too did James King whose legacy passed onto Maurice O’Shea who came to the forefront of Hunter Valley winemaking in the 1920s. The area fell into depression for many years, but gradually made a comeback in the early 1960s. Today the region is booming. The climate is regarded as warm to hot. The main wine styles: White – Semillon (regarded as one Australia’s greatest and unique wines, with great aging potential), Chardonnay; Red – Shiraz.
