Overview

Hunter Valley Semillons produce a unusual style of wine in that they are full flavoured and very low in alcohol levels and this alone makes them excellent to drink in the Australian climate.
The fruit for this wine was harvested from in our Hunter Ridge vineyard and transported to our winery where they were immediately crushed and chilled in a large airbag press pressed into a stainless steel tank. The juice was clarified and inoculated with the aromatic yeast strain and fermented at lower temperatures to maintain maximum fruit character. Post fermentation the wine was clarified, lightly fined and cold stabilised prior to bottling.
