ColourBright green hues
AromaAn aromatic and complex mix of citrus, stone fruits & savoury elements, with a perfumed spice and nutty lift.
PalateA textural and complex medium bodied palate of very good depth & length, characterised by intense stone fruits, citrus and amazing texture.
Growing ConditionsA tough vintage for certain areas of the valley. Rainfall was high, typical of what the Hunter can deliver, but the amazing ability of the vines to withstand these rain events truly astounds. The lead up to harvest was great, cool conditions, dry and lovely fruit set led to great crops at an average yield. The rainfall throughout vintage tested winemakers, with careful selective picking required to ensure the highest quality was achieved.
Vinification/MaturationOnce at the winery the Semillon and Verdelho were destemmed and crushed to a stainless steel tank where the must sat for two days. The must was then allowed to warm naturally, and ferment happened spontaneously. The ferment was brisk, lasting 7 days, where the resulting wine was topped and left on skins. Seven months later the wine was pressed off the skins in September, and was bottled with no finings or stabilisation.
