95 Gold, James Halliday's Wine Companion

Light, bright quartz-green; while developing at a leisurely pace, this has more upfront lemony fruit flavours than Vat 1, and you can see the first glimpses of toast and marmalade around the corner. Further cellaring will definitely reward, but there is ample reason to crack a bottle or two now. Drink by 2034.

Winemaker Notes


The Belford vineyard was planted in 1933. The soil is light and sandy – the consistency of talcum powder – for the top 50 centimeters. It is the northern-most of the Tyrrell’s Hunter Valley vineyards. An incredibly vibrant nose that leaps out of the glass, which is followed by a palate that is fuller, richer, almost honeyed. These characters are balanced by a soft, clean acid profile that gives the wine its great length.

91 Points, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2009 Belford Semillon is another single vineyard example possessing more of a poached pears and peaches character, though there’s still some white pepper. Crisp. More concentration and weight on the palate and increased viscosity compared to most Hunter Semillons. Long finish.
