Hunter Valley Wine Tours - The 2013 Harvest of Semillon Started Today in the Hunter Valley


Today I hosted Diane & Andy from Sydney around the vineyards on a Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tour during the harvest.

 



Up close & personal in one of Australia's & so the World's oldest & best Semillon vineyards.

 



These small bunches (about 10 cm or 4" long) of Semillon grapes off 104 year old vines are in perfect condition, with green-gold skins & with about 18" Brix in sugar, with low pH & high acidity - the hallmarks of a great long ageing wine.

 



1908 planted Semillon vines on sandy soils & not irrigated - ideal for this grape variety, with low yields of pure expression.
