2016 Silk Purse Verdelho

In my opinion Semillon and Verdelho are the two best grapes in the Hunter Valley.

The two are counter points to one another.

Verdelho is a big, ripe, rich tropical style of wine while Semillon is a lighter, leaner style.

We have a lovely creek side vineyard in Broke which is ideally suited to growing this variety. In wet years the water runs off into the creek and in dry years we pump out of the creek to provide water.

Its like a big hydroponic set up!

Anyhow, this is a lovely tropical style of wine with great flavours and generosity.

Enjoy it as a young wine or age it for 5-8 years.
