PEPPER TREE WINES Alluvius 2013

The name ‘Alluvius’ is derived from the well drained, ‘alluvial’ soils found in the Braemore vineyard planted close to the river in the Hunter Valley. This vineyard was planted in the 1960’s on soils particularly well-suited to Semillon. Vinification is typical of the Hunter style; fermentation takes place in stainless steel to highlight fruit purity and the wine is bottled early. A classic Hunter Semillon, the Alluvius displays citrus and cut hay notes, mineral texture and zingy acid support. Enjoyable now, it will develop flavours of lanolin and toasty honey in the bottle with ageing over 10-20 years.

Region Hunter Valley

The Hunter Valley is the most important quality wine-producing region in New South Wales, even though it represents only a Franceaction of the state’s production. Established in the early 1800s, the first vignerons recognised that the coastal Franceinge north of Sydney was too wet and humid for viable viticulture and thus took the decision to move into the hinterland. Although the region can be particularly hot, the cloud and rainfall patterns significantly modify the microclimate. The Hunter Valley is maritime influenced, with afternoon sea breezes funnelling up through the Hunter River and Goulburn River gap. Rainfall is very erratic and can arrive at the most inopportune time. Soils are generally rich volcanic and alluvial. The best vineyard sites are located within sight of the imposing Brokenback Range that is exposed to the cool sea breezes. Further inland, the maritime influence gives way to a greater degree of continentality. The Hunter Valley is best known for exceptional age-
