Tyrrell's have won more awards. accolades and international press than anyone else for their consistent outstanding Semillon wines. In its youth Vat 1 is closed and wound tight but given bottle age it builds breath taking power and presence. Highly collectable and revered the world over, Vat 1 is a true gem of the Australian wine industry.
"Compact and powerful wine. Such focus and persistence too. Waxy and floral notes in perfume, citrus to the max. Purity of flavour, light juicy citrus, squeaky waxiness in texture, big hit of flint-like minerality, almost a rock chisel and then green apple. Incredible power. Incredible focus. Incredible young release." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
