Overview

The vines in the HVD vineyard were planted in 1908 and form the ‘Sign Post Block. The wine is floral fruit in youth, which moves towards biscuity characters with age. The palate is generally softer bodied with smoother acids than the Vat 1 and Belford Semillons.

THE STORY OF THE SINGLE VINEYARD RANGE

The same soil, same rainfall and same temperatures of a single vineyard produce a consistency of flavour throughout the wine. Our Single Vineyard wines are only made in years when nature contrives to produce fruit of such outstanding quality that our winemakers will set parcels aside to be separately bottled.

Situated between two small creek beds, the HVD (Hunter Valley Distillery) vineyard was planted in 1908 and forms the “Sign Post Block”. The vines are rarely stressed and their roots are almost continuously in water.

Winery Tasting Notes

Vineyard

Situated between two dry creek beds, the HVD (Hunter Valley Distillery) vineyard has ideal soils for Semillon - light, sandy and well draining. The vines are dry grown and were planted in 1908.

Vintage Conditions

2014 was another strong Semillon vintage in the Hunter Valley. Dry, warm conditions that were similar to 2003 meant cropping levels were much smaller than average and produced wines with robust flavours and softer acids.

Winemaker’s Notes

After a relatively cool fermentation, the wine spent a minimal time on yeast lees before being bottled early to maintain its freshness. No oak fermentation or maturation.

Tasting Notes

A fuller, softer incarnation of HVD Semillon showing lifted white flower and citrus aromatics. The palate shows good length a great balance with it’s clean, soft acid structure.
