75cl * 10.5% ABV * Hunter Valley, Australia
Vat 1 is an Australian icon. Deliciously crisp and biting in its youth, you may see little point of ageing it much further - that is until you've been lucky enough to try an older vintage. Semillon tends to go through a difficult period of dormancy in its adolescence, but if you give it a decade or so, an unmistakeable honey-on-toast richness miraculously unfurls, Lazarus-like, from the glass. A sushi lover's wine. Drink to 2030+.
