“THE Hunter Valley has the wine industry abuzz with calls that this year’s crop is producing the “best vintage of the century”.
Heavy rains in November followed by lots of sunshine over January and February allowed farmers to harvest the fruits at optimum ripeness.
And it’s paying off, according to Tyrrell’s winemaker Chris Tyrrell. He said there was an “incredible concentration of flavour”, particularly in the semillons and shiraz. “It’s certainly been one of the best vintages I’ve seen,” he said.”
