Tyrrells Vat 1 Hunter Valley Semillon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Semillon Hunter Valley New South Wales
Outstanding Langtons Classification. Arguably Australia's finest and most enduring Semillon, Vat 1 articulates the merits of patient bottle ageing as it transforms this pure, unoaked wine. First produced in 1963 and sourced from historic Pokolbin fruit parcels, a mature Semillon aged under the Tyrrells cellar. While drinking like a dream immediately upon release, it will continue to develop delicious bottle age characters for many years hence, a joy to experience time and time again.

The story of Tyrrell is based in no small way around the formulation of that most Australian of white wine styles, Hunter Valley Semillon. Semillon is sourced from the Short Flat and Johnno’s vineyards, established circa 1908. Vines are all dry grown and were originally planted on their own roots. Grapes are hand picked throughout the cool early hours and lightly crushed, the must is fined prior to a relatively cool fermentation. After a short period on gross lees, components are racked and matured for several months before bottling. The subsequent six years are quietly spent in a dark, temperature and humidity controlled cellaring facility at the Tyrrell Winery before release.
Mid green/ gold in colour. Ripe toasty fruit, nuts and wax characters on the bouquet. A considerable length and breadth of lemon and citrus fruit flavours on the tightly structured palate, Vat 1 is only just beginning to display toasty bottle aged complexity. Whilst drinking well now, it will continue to evolve for many years to come. Match with Moreton bay bugs, crispy skinned spatchcock or grilled whiting.
