Fashions come and go, in wine as in all areas of life. Only the very best wineries transcend this fact to become fixtures in our cultural landscape. Founded just two years apart, in 1858 and 1860 respectively, Tyrrell’s and Tahbilk are perfect illustrations of this point.
Steeped in our nation’s wine history, they remain at the top of the tree by consistently delivering high quality classic Australian wines, across all price points.
From Aussie icons like the Tyrrell’s Vat Series, ‘must haves’ for any serious collector, through to the extraordinary value for money of their 1858 collection and the Tahbilk One Million cuttings range, these are Australian classics to celebrate and, most of all, to enjoy.
Aromas of rich blueberry and dark chocolate with a hint of spice. The soft and supple palate has smooth fruit flavours of blackberries and ripe plums, rounded with fine grained tannins. A delicious red at a bargain price!

A true benchmark in Australian Chardonnay, Tyrrell's Vat 47 continues its evolution towards a more delicate and textural style. The nose shows delicate citrus and white stonefruit with a hint of oak and sulphide lift. The palate retains the generosity of Chardonnay but in a refined form. The fruit is balanced well with the fresh acidity and slight textural element from extended time on yeast lees.
