The grapes were harvested during the second week of February from our Western Ridge Semillon off the historic Audrey Wilkinson Vineyard. The grapes were pressed, cold settled and the juice was concentrated by reverse osmosis to increase the sugar to 18 Baume, with 1/2 of the blend fermented and matured in new French oak for a 6 months the other 1/2 in tank to retain fruit freshness. The wine was then carefully blended, lightly fined with skim milk, filtered and bottled.
The 2014 vintage is already regarded as one of the Hunter Valley’s great vintages. With ideal warm and very dry summer conditions, we had the luxury of determining exact picking times which allowed tannin and flavour profiles to fully mature. The 2014 white and red wines will be highly sought after gems, enjoy!
