Overview

The Hunter Ridge vineyard is one of the cooler vineyards in the Hunter Valley, due to a prevailing onshore breeze that sends a cooling layer of air over the vineyard each afternoon. The old vines producing the grapes for this wine were grown on a duplex loam that consistently produces the same yield from vintage to vintage, ensuring the wine consistently delivers high flavour concentration. Hunter Semillons produce a style being unusual for the fact that the wines have full flavor and have low alcohol levels, which makes them excellent to drink in the Australian climate.

The fruit for this wine was sourced from our Hunter Ridge vineyard in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales. The grapes were harvested in the cool of the night and transported to our winery where they were immediately crushed and chilled in a large airbag press. The juice was clarified and inoculated with an aromatic yeast strain and fermented at cool temperatures. Post fermentation the wine was clarified, fined and cold stabilised prior to bottling.
