About The Wine
The Vat 1 Semillon is one of the great white wines of Australia.
First released in 1963, and with an unmatched track record for quality, this is Australia's most decorated white wine.
It's a wine that typifies the world famous Hunter Valley Semillon style. Released with a little bottle age, Vat 1 matures beautifully over the long term. As a young wine, it's wound incredibly tight but with time in the bottle a wine with breathtaking complexity and generosity of flavour is revealed.
Highly collectable and revered the world over, Vat 1 is a true gem of the Australian wine industry.
Tyrrell's is one of Australia's oldest and most prestigious family-owned wineries.
With a rich, decorated history stretching back to 1858, the Tyrrell family are custodians of some of the finest (and oldest) vineyards in the Hunter Valley, and indeed, the world.
Their top releases of Shiraz, Semillon, and Chardonnay are highly collectable and considered by many as some of the truest regional examples of these varieties.
As the talented Chris Tyrrell takes his place in the cellar, just as four generations of Tyrrell men have before him, this family institution is set to remain one of the most important bastions of quality Australian wine for many years to come.
