VINEYARD / SOIL
Our 2017 Alluvius Semillon comes from the Travena vineyard on Hermitage Road in the lower Hunter Valley. This famous vineyard, under the charge of Trudy Travena, was planted in 1920 by Trudy's grandfather 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
