2023 Special Release Cabernet Sauvignon


At Tyrrell’s our focus is always on quality and authenticity, crafting wines that speak of their origins. Over five generations, we’ve honed our craft and built a portfolio of premium wines, but every now and then, we get the opportunity to try something different. Thanks to our long history, we’ve built up relationships with other growers and sometimes we’re offered a great batch of grapes. Our Special Release range is for just these wines – limited production one-offs and trial batches, or just something unique or different.

The Cabernet was sourced from the Pokolbin Hills Vineyard, which was planted in 2009 at the base of Pokolbin Mountain and features brown and red podzolic clay loam soil.

In the lead up to the 2023 vintage, there was an abundance of rain in spring which gave great soil moisture heading into the dry months of December and January. The harvest period was relatively stress-free without any adverse conditions such as rain or heat. This vintage has produced well-balanced, complex wines with fruit purity and is considered to be an exceptional Hunter Valley vintage.

Harvested in late February in perfect condition this small batch was fermented cool in a single, two tonne open top vat. After two weeks on skins, gentle pump over and hand plunging techniques were used for gentle extraction. The fermenting wine was then transferred to French oak barriques (15% new) and matured for eight months. No fining required just filtered into bottle.

Varietal graphite, blue fruits on the nose, pure fruited, bright, modern with mouth coating velvety soft, cocoa powder-like tannins. An elegant Cabernet that is utterly drinkable.
