What makes Hunter Semillon so appealing?
Hunter Valley Semillon is a very versatile white wine. It displays characters of lemon, lime, kaffir lime leaves and lemon curd alonside a salivating acidity which makes it the perfect partner for delicious seafood.
What new varietals are on the horizon?
We have recently seen the production of Fiano for Briar Ridge. It has been planted out front of our cellar door. A delicious, crisp wine characterised by honeysuckle and cumquat with a textural mid palate and fine finish.
