If you’ve come this far, you know what semillon’s about, too: not touching for 5-20 years and then enjoying the amazing depth and complexity that only aged Hunter sem can exhibit. And 2016 reminded some winemakers of the rollercoaster 1972 vintage, partly due to the wettest January since that year, the challenges of hail and a super-dry February, and partly because they’re hoping that it might just be one of the best semillon vintages they’d ever seen. 

“If the 2016 whites turn out to be as good as 1972, I will be very happy, because I have always reckoned that the 1972 Vat 1 Semillon is the greatest Tyrrell’s wine I have ever tasted,” said Bruce Tyrrell.

Now I’m not saying this is a Tyrrell’s wine, but we reckon this is a nice quote about the vintage from someone who should know.

So all you really need to decide is how much of this brilliant little baby semillon you want to be drinking over the next 20 years. And then double it, because now you can.


We can’t reveal the brand of this wine on our site. It’s a promise we made to the producer and that’s how we secured the deal. You still get the real McCoy – no cleanskins, no knockoffs, just top shelf vino at up to 70% off. Trust us, you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
