The flagship semillon of Tyrrell's and one of Australia's most awarded white wines.
Vat 1 Hunter Semillon epitomised the benefits of patient bottle ageing that transforms this unoaked wine into a masterpiece. First produced in 1963, the Vat 1 is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks before it quietly spends a few years resting in bottles.
It is a classic Hunter Valley semillon showing a tightly structured palate with considerable length and breadth of citrus fruit flavours. This wine is only just beginning to evolve and show a hint of toasty, bottle aged complexity. An iconic Australian wine from what is a classic vintage for Hunter Valley semillon.
Lifted lime citrus aromas, the palate is seamless showing the typical powerful fruit core which is balanced by the wine's texture and soft acid profile. This wine shows a length of flavour only produced from great vineyards.
