MATURATION
Hand picked and delivered to the winery, the fruit was then pressed and into tank for cold settling. The clear juice was racked off and inoculated with a chosen yeast strain and fermented cool. Once dry, the wine was left on yeast lees for one month before being prepared for bottling.

VINEYARD / SOIL
Pepper Tree's Hunter Valley vineyard is in the Mount View area of the Lower Hunter Valley in the sheltered foothills of the Brokenback Range and covers 38.5 ha of plantings. The area boasts highly favourable soils influenced by the large proportion of limestone in the underlying rocks. Alluvial loams along the vineyard's creek flats are ideal soils for Semillon and Verdelho.
