2014 Tyrrell’s Vat 1 Semillon15095
WINEMAKER: Chris Tyrrell
REGION: Hunter Valley, NSW
Our flagship semillon 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.
An iconic estate dating back to the mid-19th century, Tyrrell's is home to some of the oldest vines in the world. More traditional than most producers you'll find here, however truly dynamic and progressive with fifth-generation winemaker Chris Tyrrell at the helm.
