WINE: 02 OCTOBER 2014
Tyrrells 2009 Vat 1 Semillon
Hunter Valley NSW | 11.0 per cent alcohol | $80
Vat 1 has become the absolute benchmark for Hunter semillon over the years and has won the company innumerable gold medals and trophies.
The wine’s depth and complexity is already quite simply staggering and it’s only at the beginning of a very, very long life.
It's a wine with pedigree and class woven right through its tight, complex structure. Not cheap, but worth every cent if you're prepared to pay for the best.
