Tyrrell’s Lost Block Semillon 2005

Wow, it's been a while! Sorry~

Tyrrell's Wines is a well-known brand found in pretty much any liquor store.

This one was a Semillon from the Hunter Valley -- so I thought I couldn't possibly go too wrong with that. The bottle claims it is easy to drink - which is something I like about wines. And, well, it was. It was somewhere between light and medium bodied. It also has NO oak -- another thing I like about my wines!

Pretty much what the website says about the wine is true. Light fruity flavours, acidic, some lemon in there ...

Bought this wine when out having chinese at Peakhurst. It went wonderfully with the food. We had Billy Kee Chicken and also Veges in Oyster Sauce, by the way. I am not sure how it would fare on its own, but with chicken it worked really nicely.

Price: About $15

Would I buy this wine again? Sure, perhaps. I've had better, but it did the job and went down easily. Maybe with food only.

More Tyrrell's wines and info can be found at their website here

More info on this particular wine is here.

I had a Tyrrells Verdelho not long ago and it wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting it to be. I consider it to be very much a "backyard" wine, though. The kind you'd bring to a barbecue, but not a dinner party.

totally. it's made out to be such a great label but it really isn't anything special i think.
