Tyrrell’s has been around for a while in fact they are part of the first families of wine which includes Campbells, De Bortoli, D’Arenberg, Jim Barry, Brown Brothers, Hensche, Howard Park, Yalumba, Taylors, McWilliam’s and Tahbilk. This is a group of family owned winery’s that have a long tradition and make a diverse range of wines that are typically regarded as being the contrary to brand Australia wines. In the case of Tyrrell’s they produce numerous single vineyard wines from ancient vineyards. They offer extreme value for the quality and range and the Bin 91 is testament to that. If you are not on their mailing list you really need to sign up.
Tyrrell’s Bin 91 Chardonnay 2009
I was thinking that since I’ve gone back to Uni to complete my honours I really need to start drinking something that is in my price range. Well this little one bats well above its weight with melon, white nectarine and apple infused crème slowly unfolding upon my palate. The wine is zippy with ok length and mouth feel but finishes a bit broad through the mid palate and looses focus toward the back. A perfect little mid-week quaffer that won’t hurt the bank balance.
