Tyrrell's Pokolbin Semillon is made from grapes grown in the very same vineyard as the Classified ‘Outstanding’ Tyrrell’s Vat 1 Semillon. Vat 1 originates from three distinctive blocks with the potential for limitless possibility. Instead of harvesting the fruit from the Vat 1 vineyard all at once, winemakers Andrew Spinaze and Chris Tyrrell picked the third block at a different time, fermenting it separately. Once bottled, it was cellared in secret, and the team watched it evolve. The Pokolbin Semillon was born.

Region Hunter Valley

The Hunter Valley is the most important quality wine-producing region in New South Wales, even though it represents only a Franceaction of the state’s production. Established in the early 1800s, the first vignerons recognised that the coastal Franceinge north of Sydney was too wet and humid for viable viticulture and thus took the decision to move into the hinterland. Although the region can be particularly hot, the cloud and rainfall patterns significantly modify the microclimate. The Hunter Valley is maritime influenced, with afternoon sea breezes funnelling up through the Hunter River and Goulburn River gap. Rainfall is very erratic and can arrive at the most inopportune time. Soils are generally rich volcanic and alluvial. The best vineyard sites are located within sight of the imposing Brokenback Range that is exposed to the cool sea breezes. Further inland, the maritime influence gives way to a greater degree of continentality. The Hunter Valley is best known for exceptional age-

Winery TYRRELL'S

Tyrrell’s is one of the oldest family wineries in Australia with a history dating to the mid 19th century. In 1850 Edward Tyrrell arrived in Sydney. He was eventually granted 330 acres of prime Hunter Valley land, planting his first vines in 1858. Tyrrell’s first vintage in 1864 began a family tradition of winemaking in the Hunter Valley. His original slab hut is still standing today. The economic slump in the 1930s,saw a decline in production as demand waned. Over the years Tyrrell’s has managed to survive and thrive, producing numerous wines including a handful of premium wines including the iconic Vat 1 Semillon, Vat 47 Chardonnay and Vat 9 Shiraz.
