VINEYARD / SOIL
Our Alluvius Semillon comes from the Braemore vineyard on Hermitage Road in the lower Hunter Valley. This famous vineyard, under the charge of Ken Bray, was planted in the late 60's and consistently produces benchmark Hunter Semillon. The well drained, 'alluvial' soils lead to a unique expression of what is considered to be Australia's greatest white wine style

NOTES
Vibrant aromas of lemongrass and lime dominate this Hunter Semillon on the nose. The palate is crisp & intense yet elegant, displaying mineral texture delivering wonderful line and length. A classic wine of great drive, coupled with extraordinary finesse and definition. Enjoy now or confidently cellar for the next 10 - 20 years.
