Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon 2012

Item code: ITM4834

From one of Australia’s pre-eminent wineries comes this delectable and iconic Semillon. Hand-picked from dry-grown vines up to 93-years-old, this Semillon was fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and later spent a short time on lees for complexity.

The palate is tightly structured with considerable length and an amazing breadth of citrus characters. There is a hint of toasty complexity which will continue to develop with cellaring.

"From two dry-grown blocks with an average age of 60 years. Five years have passed since the wine was made, but it’s oh so young and fresh, with years of life in front of it; its balance and length are faultless, so its future is gold-plated." James Halliday
