Pepper Tree Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc

Terroir

Pepper Tree’s Hunter Valley vineyard is in the Mount View area of the Lower Hunter Valley in the sheltered foothills of the Brokenback Range and covers 38.5 ha of plantings. The area boasts highly favourable soils influenced by the large proportion of limestone in the underlying rocks. Alluvial loams along the vineyard’s creek flats are ideal soils for Semillon and Verdelho.

Vinification

The individual parcels were machine harvested in the cool of the night and then crushed and pressed on arrival into the winery. Once settled, the clear juices were racked off and inoculated with aromatic yeast strains. Once finished ferment, the resulting wines were blended together and prepared for bottling.

Features

An expressive blend combining passionfruit and gooseberry fruit notes of Orange Sauvignon Blanc with the crisp lemonade and lime cordial of Hunter Valley Semillon. The palate is vibrant and lively with subtle nettle, guava and lemon flavour. Well balanced acidity with a crisp, dry finish.
