Tyrrell's Wines

Tyrrell’s Old Winery range is named after its historic winery in the Hunter Valley, 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.

Tasting Notes

Fresh and lively with an intense sweet tropical nose with lifted spice aromas. Rich tropical fruit and honey flavours fill the palate and are complemented by a light crisp lemony finish.

Food Matches

We recommend that this wine is served slightly chilled. It is very compatible with most styles of foods including seafood, chicken and spicy Asian dishes.

Vinification

The verdelho grapes for this wine were harvested from selected vineyards within the Hunter Valley, and the resulting free-run juice was cool-fermented to retain its inherent fragrant qualities. A small amount of residual sugar was left in the wine for added complexity and fruit weight. Soon after fermentation the finished wine was fined, filtered and bottled.
