About The Wine
In search of his own finest possible version of the famous Hunter Valley Semillon, Mike De Iuliis has bottled a series of single vineyard Semillons from the great 2017 vintage.
This is from the 'Garden Vineyard', on the sandy flats that spread through central Pokolbin. Sandy soils are the holy grail for Semillon production and Mike nails this release.
This received 94 points from Gary Walsh and will look brilliant in the cellar for a decade or more.
About De Iuliis
De Iuliis - pronounced [de uli ~ iss] - are one of the brightest stars from the Hunter Valley.
Owners Joss and Anna De luliis first planted vines on their estate in the famous Lovedale sub-region back in 1990, but it wasn’t until their son Mike got involved after graduating from the world-renowned Roseworthy campus (Adelaide University) in 1999 that things really took off.
Today Mike crafts an excellent array of site-specific wines that are a very good modern representation of what the Hunter Valley has to offer.
