Tyrrell’s Vat 1 Semillon 1999

Vat 1

Just a quick note on this classic wine from a classic semillon vintage.

Aromas of lemon and lime and some lightly honeyed toast. Hint of candle wax. Juicy fresh squeezed lime flavours with a little toasty development. Touch of spice and vanilla. Pure and perfectly balanced – everything is just right here. Exceptional length of flavour. Just starting to develop some complexity but still  fresh and vibrant. Reminds me of the 1994 vintage a bit and I’d say it’s the best since.
