2013 Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon   "The Emperor, shy but strident, wearing a myriad of citrus and orchard colours and a tensile sash of calm, and poise. This majestic wine's lightweight belies its sheer stretch of flavours across the palate. Energetic and gently grippy; tightly wound but bristling with mineral intent. Bottle age has softened this ever so slightly. Nothing more. An Australian classic in the making!" - James Halliday, 97 points; "There's just a whisper of toast starting up, but the wine is reserved for its age, promising to live long if cellared. Taut, dry, savoury and restrained. An excellent wine with a long future ahead of it (5 Gold medals)" - Huon Hooke, 97 points; "A powerhouse palate presenting juicy, almost sweet, citrus fruit that fills the mouth - remarkable presence for such a light wine. Subtle powdery texture and pure acidity. Length to burn. A classic Vat 1" - Gary Walsh, 96 points; "Already thrumming with complexity, loaded with lemon fruit, wax, toast and fantastic marine saltiness on the finish. Long and layered, with the sense that the petals are only just beginning to unfurl. As ever, there is huge potential here" - JancisRobinson, 17.5+ points out of 20  $69.95 per bottle

2011 Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon   "This is a beautiful Vat 1, just starting its journey towards maturity. Its balance and harmony allow it to float effortlessly along the palate and into a finish that caresses that taste buds. It will develop slowly, but give pleasure whenever it is tasted" - James Halliday, 97 points; "This wine is showing some positive aged characteristics but remains fresh and very alive and promises to live on for many more years. A superbly stylish, delicate, high-quality semillon" - Huon Hooke, 97 points; "Showing some positive age development, but not yet toasty or mature. Some aged nuances, but it's fresh and alive, and will live for many more years. A fine, delicate, top quality semillon" - Gourmet Traveller Magazine, 97 points  $76.50 per bottle
