2013 was a vintage of two parts in the Hunter Valley, with ideal conditions in the lead up to Australia Day, followed by torrential rain for a sustained period thereafter. Early white varieties such as Semillon were tucked safely away in the winery and are delivering immense drinking pleasure 5 years later. A classic white vintage.
