Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon 2005 -160th Anniversary
One of Australia’s most awarded white wines with 34 Trophies alone, the 2005 Vat 1 was re-released in 2018 to commemorate the 160th anniversary of Tyrrell's Wines - making for a most extraordinary gift.
A classic Hunter Valley Semillon showing a tightly structured palate with considerable length and breadth of citrus fruit flavours. This wine is only just beginning to evolve and show a hint of toasty, bottle aged complexity. An iconic wine from a classic vintage.

Vintage 2005 - The display of 14 gold medals and seven trophies on the bottle borders on the vulgar, however richly it deserves this haul. It is still a pale, bright green, and the lemon/mineral flavours are exceptionally fresh and vibrant, lingering for minutes on the finish and aftertaste; a freak wine that will live as long as any red wine of similar age.
