Tyrrell's Wines won a total of 13 trophies and 178 medals in 2014, a year that was noteworthy for the growing popularity of Semillon, the winery said.

From the nine Australian, one New Zealand and Decanter wine shows entered, Tyrrell’s won an average of nearly 18 accolades per show, including the ultimate recognition in winning Adelaide wine show’s 2014 Wine of Provenance with Vat 1 Semillon 1998, 2005, 2013.

Under the management of chief winemaker, Andrew Spinaze, wines from Vat 1 Semillon ($80) and Vat 47 Chardonnay ($75) to Brookdale Semillon ($20), were all acknowledged. Tyrrell’s also won the only trophies and gold medals for Chardonnay at the Hunter Valley Wine Show in 2014.

Bruce Tyrrell said it was extremely satisfying to see the recognition Tyrrell’s had achieved on the show circuit.

“I genuinely believe with the wines we have coming we will be able to come close to, or beat this, in 2015,” he said.
