Description
 
Edward Tyrrell planted his first vines in the Hunter Valley in 1858 establishing Tyrrell's Wines. His first vintage was in 1864 and by the turn of the century the land had became recognized as some of the Hunter Valley's finest vineyard land. The Hunter Valley was ideal for the production of premium wines, notably Shiraz in the reds and Semillon in the whites. These two varieties provided the basis for the beginning of the Tyrrell's premium Winemaker's Selection Range. From being a very traditional Hunter Valley winery, Tyrrell's have expanded their portfolio to include some excellent new wines from Victoria and McLaren Vale, under their Rufus Stone label. Vat 1 Semillon is fermented in stainless steel, spending a short time on lees in tank prior to bottling. It sees no oak.

The 2011 Vat 1 Semillon presents a citrus nose garlanded with lemon grass and lime leaves that is quite chalky and a little closed. In the mouth it is a classic Vat 1 – bone dry and light-bodied with rasping acidity, great citrus intensity and mineral character. It has a very long, elegant finish though needs time to evolve. Wine Advocate 93 (2011)
