Tyrrell's Pokolbin Semillon is made from grapes grown in the very same vineyard as the Classified ‘Outstanding’ Tyrrell’s Vat 1 Semillon. Vat 1 originates from three distinctive blocks with the potential for limitless possibility. Instead of harvesting the fruit from the Vat 1 vineyard all at once, winemakers Andrew Spinaze and Chris Tyrrell picked the third block at a different time, fermenting it separately. Once bottled, it was cellared in secret, and the team watched it evolve. The Pokolbin Semillon was born.
Of a different style to the legendary Vat 1, this aged Semillon has plenty of life left in it–at least 10, in fact. Langton’s Brokerage Head of Sales Pierre Durand describes it as, ’What premium Semillon should taste like.’ It drinks like a baby brother to Vat 1—the flagship Semillon of Tyrrell’s stable—at less than half the RRP.
