Description

Winemaker’s comments

The Jessica is a refreshing, vibrant, fruity wine made from 100% Verdelho. A wine full of flavour but with optimal acidity to give a zesty finish. Cold fermented in stainless steel, settled and fined and bottled early to retain freshness.

 

Vintage notes

The Hunter 2014 was an excellent vintage for whites and reds. There was good rain in November when rain is needed, followed by well below average rainfalls between September and February. All our white grapes were harvested by the 28th of January.
 

Vineyard notes

Terroir: The soil and conditions in the Hunter Valley produce a Verdelho that is unique to this area. A zesty, rich wine with typical tropical fruit flavours and good acid. This Singleton vineyard has older vines running east west which help to avoid harsh direct summer heat on the fruit. The volcanic clay soil also adds some mineral structure to the wine.
