Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon

"A classic Hunter Valley Semillon showing a tightly structured palate with considerable length and breadth of citrus fruit flavours. First produced in 1963 from Semillon grapes grown on our Short Flat vineyard, Vat 1 is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and then quietly spends a few years ‘resting’in bottles.Released after 5 years of bottle age, Vat 1 is a classic example of aged Hunter Semillon. Arguably Australia’s finest Semillon, Vat 1 epitomises the benefits of patient bottle ageing that transforms this unoaked wine into a masterpiece.Tyrrell’s Vat 1 was first produced in 1963 from Semillon grapes grown on the Short Flat Vineyard across the road from Tyrrell’s historic Pokolbin winery."www.tyrrells.com.au
