2020 silk purse verdelho
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 2020 vintage was stinking hot. For whatever reason Verdelho just loves this sort of weather. It seems to love basking in the sun.
This year we went to a different vineyard, towards Mt. View. The resulting wine is very full bodied, with rich tropical fruit flavour and a touch of sweetness on the finish to tie it together. Drink now with a fuller flavoured seafood dish, chilli prawns would work a treat.
