Gap Hill Verdelho

We find that the Stroud “Terroir” is just right for producing quality Verdelho. We continue to pay careful attention to soil, microclimate and vineyard management so that our artful winemaker receives quality hand-picked grapes each February.

Our winemaker is Rhys Eather who has a great reputation in the Hunter for making quality white wines.  His  combination of Australian and international winemaking experience makes a perfect fit with our drive for quality and distinctiveness. Our winemaker until 2013 was David Fatches.  Both our winemakers have utilised our preferred commitment to a slow and cool fermentation period to ensure that Gap Hill Verdelho retains maximum fruit flavour when fermented to dryness.

Our Hunter Region is known for its distinctive Verdelhos. Our northern Stroud Verdelho tends towards crispness compared to the fuller style of the more southerly Pokolbin Verdelhos.
