Hunter Valley, Rutherglen

Internationally, Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s two most well known wine regions, alongside Barossa Valley in South Australia. Located about a two hour drive north of Sydney, the region is very popular for weekend escapes from the city of Sydney.

Hunter Valley’s climate includes regular droughts or floods, seemingly less than desirable conditions to grow grapes, with the hot, humid summers and cool winters. Nevertheless, the region has been under cultivation since the 1800’s and is responsible for putting Australian wine, in particular Sémillon and to a lesser extent Shiraz, on the world wine map. Winemaking pioneers such as Bruce Tyrrell (Tyrrell's Wines) and Len Evans helped the region gain worldwide recognition.

The famous Hunter valley Sémillon was for many years known as ‘Hunter Valley Riesling’ and is never matured in oak. It is however one of the most ageworthy whites in the country with bottles showing an inordinate ability to age gracefully. Bottle-aged Sémillons will often exhibit burnt toast and honey characteristics, slight nutty notes and supremely complex flavours on the palate. This palate complexity is coupled with soft acidity and the finish can be very long indeed.
Located within the North East Victoria zone in Victoria, Rutherglen is a wine region situated to the north of Beechworth and to the east of Glenrowan. This wine region is considered the most important fortified wine production area in Australia, producing Muscats and Tokays which are internationally renowned for their exceptional quality and style. Most of the vineyards are located within the northern half of the area, where it is separated by the Murray River from New South Wales. The first vines in Rutherglen were planted during the gold rush era in 1851 and boasts of some of the oldest wineries in the country. Combining old traditions and new technology, Rutherglen has come a long way from its beginnings. The area received official recognition in 1997 when it was accorded GI (Geographical Indication) status.

Today, the wine region uses a variety of grapes for their wines including their famous Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains and Tokay which is used to make the famous fortified wines that Rutherglen is known for. The wines made from Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains are incomparable in depth and complexity. The wine is made by a particular winemaking process which involves a slow and oxidate barrel-ageing procedure that gives out a wide range of flavours including butterscotch, toffee, caramel, sweet spices and tea liquor.
