$85.00 / bottle

Our flagship semillon and one of Australia's most awarded white wines.Vat 1 Hunter Semillon epitomised the benefits of patient bottle ageing that transforms this unoaked wine into a masterpiece. First produced in 1963, the Vat 1 is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks before it quietly spends a few years 'resting' in bottles. It is 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 Australian wine from what is a classic vintage for Hunter Valley semillon.

James Halliday Wine Companion

96 Points - Classic in the making. Straw-green, slight spritz, excellent intensity yet still manages to trip lightly from the attack to the extended finish. Citrus, wax, anise and green herbs but beautifully integrated. Complete. Drink to 2026.

Gary Walsh, Wine Front

96 Points - Clean, lemon, lime, light honeyed tones - subdued - and then? 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.

Nick Stock, jamessuckling.com

94 Points - Very subtle aromas of sliced lemon, apple and pear. Steel too. Full body, bright acidity and a vivid finish. Love the focus and beauty to this. Creamy mouth feel. Drink now. Screw cap.
