$98.00 / 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.

Gary Walsh, Wine Front

95 Points - "Vat 1, year in, year out, rarely sets a foot wrong. Honey and white fruit like pears, plus mixed citrus and a flicker of pepper. Light in body, yet delivers plenty of flavour, ripe lime, lovely clean acidity – almost a sherbetty character – then a finish that’s light, delicate but very long. Precision and beauty.”
