Wine Enthusiast, 97 Points 

"2016 wasn't hailed as a particularly great vintage, but, seven years in, this wine, from the historic winery's best old blocks, is singing. A heady, layered perfume of citrus pith, dried herb, beeswax, wool, flint and orchard blossom leads to a palate that's uniquely textured, like chalk dust swirled into melted wax and lifted by mouthwatering acidity. Bright, prickly lemon peel lingers on the long, slippery finish. Both delicate and powerful, it drinks beautifully now, but also has a long life ahead." 

James Suckling, 96 Points 

"There's a wow factor to this wine, the way in which it manages to harness such impressive power and concentration and deliver it in such smooth, seamless and tubular shape is a thing to marvel at. Aromas of gently flinty lime and lemon fruits lead to flavorus of the same ilk, really astonishingly pure, long and polished, green apple flavor s close it out fresh and bright. Drink now or age, superb." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon 2016 has an inviting nose of citrus and a palate that is the perfect mid-point between power and elegance. The signature Vat 1 fruit power is balanced by its delicate yet crisp acid profile, resulting in a seamless wine with a clean finish. Poised to enjoy a long life in the cellar." 

Alcohol: 11%
