Established in 1858, Tyrrell’s is one of Australia’s pre-eminent family owned wine companies with vineyards extending from their historic home in the Hunter Valley to the Limestone Coast (South Australia) and Heathcote (Victoria). Headed up by fourth generation family member Bruce Tyrrell, and fifth Generation Chris Tyrrell, Tyrrell’s is home to some of Australia’s most awarded wines, including the iconic Vat 1 Semillon.
The cornerstone of the Tyrrell’s portfolio is their Winemaker’s Selection range – one of Australia’s oldest and most awarded collection of wines, adhering to timeless styles that transcend trends and fads. These five individual wines, including the Vat 1 Semillon, Vat 6 Pinot Noir Vat 8 Shiraz, Vat 9 Shiraz and Vat 47 Chardonnay, all originate from Tyrrell’s finest and oldest vineyards around their historic Pokolbin winery in the Hunter Valley.
The company motto of ‘nothing is great unless it is good’ began with Edward Tyrrell from England, and has been a guiding beacon for the family for more than 150 years. It has been, and will continue to be, the basis of all that Tyrrell’s do. This commitment to quality and the never ending quest by the winemaking team to produce the best wines, has garnered many local and international accolades.
Since 1971, Tyrrell’s has been awarded over 5,000 trophies and medals, and in 2015 alone, was awarded 73 Bronze medals, 45 Silver medals, 37 Gold medals, 3 Top Gold medals, 19 Trophies…plus Wine of Provenance for Johnno’s Shiraz at the Hunter Valley Show for 2004, 2009 and 2013 vintages.
With the fifth generation, Chris, Jane and John, involved in the business, Tyrrell’s will continue to drive family as being pinnacle to the ethos of the company, with the simple philosophy of producing high quality wine that people love to drink.
