95 Gold, James Halliday's Wine Companion

Coming off a difficult vintage, gee this is showing well. It has flavour, as in from the fruit not just the oak and leesy characters, which are here too. Complex, layered with poached quince and ginger and sun-bleached hay, yet tight. Zesty and bright with a lightening rod of acidity so this needs more time.

Winemaker Notes


Planted in 1991, the soil of the dry grown Belford vineyard is light and sandy – the consistency of talcum powder – for the top 50 centimetres. It is the northern-most of the Tyrrell’s Hunter Valley vineyards. A rich, complex nose of fruit, oak and a slight solids character. A powerful palate with the fruit characters being balanced well with the oak and mid-palate grainy texture. The wine finishes with a soft, refreshing acid profile, a benefit of no malolactic fermentation.
