SKU: TYRBELSEM16
The Belford vineyard was planted in 1933. Handpicked in the early hours of the morning, the fruit was lightly crushed and pressed, before a relatively cool fermentation. Then the wine spent minimal time on yeast lees before being bottled early to maintain its freshness. No oak fermentation or maturation. An incredibly vibrant nose that leaps out of the glass, which is followed by a palate that is fuller, richer, almost honeyed. These characters are balanced by a soft, clean acid profile that gives the wine its great length.

”A dry-grown planting dating from 1933 across light sandy soils. Belford boasts the most fruit intensity of Tyrell's 3 single-vineyard semillions. The strongest immediate impact of the triumvirate. Talc, barley sugar and chalky riffs lead, with pink grapefruit and lemon balm. A linger of tonic, lemon myrtle and orange verbena. Extremely long and slaking already, with the confluence of fruit and structural components still elemental. Pulls the saliva from the back of the mouth. A little more time needed to really gel. Superb wine in the making.”
