The grapes were harvested at the beginning of February, and pressed gently to a stainless steel tank. A cool ferment was used to ensure aromatic characters were retained. Post fermentation the wine was sulfured and racked off yeast lees, with a light fining of skim milk. This Verdelho was then heat and cold stabilized, filtered and bottled under screw cap to retain its youthful freshness.
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!
Pale straw with green hues.
Lifted aromas of melon, guava and other tropical fruits.
A fruit driven palate of honey dew melon and pineapple with a hint of white spice. Crisp acidity gives this wine a fresh and balanced finish.
