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 2020 vintage began in the Hunter Valley with a very dry winter and almost no rainfall at all. Budburst began in mid-August and it wasn't until mid-September that we received some decent rainfall. Over the summer period, the dry conditions continued and it resulted in the earliest harvest in history. The dry conditions meant that crop levels were down across the Hunter Valley but the grapes we harvested were in great condition and had lots of concentration of flavour.
