Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grape varieties; originally from France’s Burgundy region, today it is planted almost anywhere that wine is produced. Chardonnay has a relatively neutral flavour profile, which allows winemakers to use a variety of skills and techniques to create a wide range of styles from taut and linear to rich and buttery.
Sourced from a small selection of Tyrrell’s favourite Chardonnay blocks, this wine was matured in French oak barriques, and spent time on yeast lees to give the palate added complexity and texture. It shows lifted citrus with a slight hint of oak, with both weight and balance.

Bright aromas of lemon, stonefruit with nuances of butterscotch and caramel. The palate is long and silky with an abundance of ripe peach, melon and citrus flavours interwoven with hints of spice and French oak influence. Charming, well-balanced with a flavoursome finish this is a delicious Chardonnay.

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.
