Both parcels of wine were made separately to retain each wine’s aromatics and freshness. The wine was carefully blended after fermentation to have 70% Hunter Valley Semillon and 30% Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc. The fresh citrus, lime and lemon characteristics come from the Hunter Valley Semillon, which provides structure, elegance and acid line to the wine. The Sauvignon Blanc provides lifted aromas of passionfruit, guava and stone fruit. The final blend was lightly fined, filtered and bottled under screw cap
The 2019 vintage will be regarded as a great vintage in the Hunter Valley. A dry winter was followed by good rainfall in spring and summer which set the vines up with healthy canopies. The ripening period was consistently warm and dry which resulted in yields that were slightly down but quality was very high. The white and red wines are full of flavour and will be highly sought after.
