In my opinion Semillon and Verdelho are the two great grapes of the Hunter. I reckon we can mount an argument that we do the best examples of these styles in the world.
The 2018 vintage was stinking hot and dry. For whatever reason Verdelho just loves this sort of weather. It seems to love basking in the sun.
As a result, the 2018 Silk Purse is one of the best we have seen. Its got huge tropical fruit flavours and a dry finish. One to try with a fuller flavoured seafood dish.
