This is right up there with the best recent vintages of Vat 47 for me (2009, 2013). I suspect it will be quite a thing with a few more years in bottle, and I’d suggest that the sweet spot is generally around five to ten years from vintage. Lime and melon, vanilla and spicy biscuit, kinda delivers that classic Vat 47 flavour profile, along with some cashew and a minor smokiness. Medium bodied, a little toast and nuts, but a fluid and glycerol feel with flinty texture, delightful mouth-perfume, and a fine long finish. Beautiful. Wait a few years, mind you. Wrote a score of 95+ or 96. Either or.

Light yellow colour. The bouquet is very fruit-driven creamy leesy, a bit unformed as yet, almost a little grapy. The wine is very delicate, subdued, attenuated and subtle. A very pared-back style, seemingly. This is a surprise: it's quite unready and latent. It shows that the wine needs the time in bottle before release that Tyrrells give it. (Will possibly be scored higher when it's more ready).

This is very deep and composed with layers of ripe-apple, cream, coconut and pie-crust character. Full body. Lightly velvety texture and a flavorful finish. Intense but in reserve. Gorgeous white.
