Light alluvial soil on yellow clay creates wines from the Semillon variety of lean citrus austerity. Our Aged Release Semillon has been made in a very pure style to reflect the traditions of the area. Strength of acid and line and length are the keys to the ageing style and this wine has been specifically made to have this covered. 5 years of bottle maturation allows both the young wine and the older wine to be seen in the one glass.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Beltree
Winemaker Notes
The Beltree Vineyard was planted in the 1930’s by the Elliot family and is a typical example of a dryland Belford Semillon vineyard. Light alluvial soil on yellow clay creates wines from the Semillon variety of lean citrus austerity. The grapes for this semillon were handpicked in the cool of the morning from vines yielding less than one tonne to the acre. The wine has been made in the traditional low sugar manner that produces wines with great ageing potential. The juice was fermented under temperature controlled conditions to maintain all of its fruit characters. True to Hunter tradition, no oak is used.
