Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 94 Points (2018)
This historic winery is a benchmark for the inimitable style of Semillon the Hunter Valley’s warm and humid conditions are famed for. This current vintage is an open and delicate drop that ripples with honey-flecked fruit, beeswax and dried herbs. The juicy fruit and acidity prickle amid a talc-like texture that flows through to a long, refreshing finish. Drink now–2028.

James Halliday (JH) : 92 Points (2018)
This is said by Tyrrell's to be the baby brother of Vat 1, coming from special blocks from Tyrrell's wide selection of vineyards. Its palate has building blocks yet to come together, ripe semillon fruit and minerally acidity. The hot vintage tested many vineyards. (2/2020)

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2018)
Distinctive and refreshing, featuring bright, crisp lemony flavors, with undercurrents of lanolin and saline. Offers a supple frame and an impressive finish.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2017)
An appley semillon showing fresh Williams pears, dried coriander, honeysuckle and a touch of dried nettles. Medium-bodied, but it has some really good texture and apple fruit that are delivered through a bed of pretty acidity. A textured finish. Drink now. (8/2018)

Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2016)
The 2016 Semillon is a fresh, fruit-forward example of the genre. Green apple and lime juice notes dominate, while hints of crushed stone provide a pleasantly silky texture and extend through the long, mouthwatering finish. While some Sémillons age well, given this wine's fruit-forward nature, I'd opt for drinking it over the next few years.

The wine is floral fruit in youth, which moves towards biscuity characters with age. The palate is generally softer bodied with smoother acids than the Vat 1 and Belford Semillons
