2017 Tyrrell’s Vat 1 Semillon Hunter Valley

From: $90.00

2017 Tyrrell’s Vat 1 Semillon Hunter Valley – Vat 1 Semillon is only ever made using fruit from Tyrrell’s best old-vine, dry-grown vineyards. These blocks, the oldest of which was planted in 1923, feature sandy, free-draining soils that are ideal for growing Semillon and give the Vat 1 its unique character.

The 2017 Vintage was one of the best in recent memory and has produced wines of the highest quality. Solid rains in winter and spring meant the vines had constant access to water and the warmer weather in the new year meant all of the fruit was in near perfect condition and ripeness when it was harvested.

All of the fruit was hand picked and carefully sorted in the vineyard. After a relatively cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine spent a minimal time on yeast lees before being bottled early to maintain its freshness. No oak fermentation or maturation.

With 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.

Cellaring 10+ years.
