Originating from Italy the De Iuliis family have made the Hunter region their home since 1960. After a long successful career in the Hunter mining industry, Joss and Anna De Iuliis were inspired to follow their family passion for wine and chose a property in the Lovedale Road region of the Lower Hunter Valley, converting a grazing property into a 20ha vineyard with the first vines planted in 1990. For the first decade they provided fruit for some of the Hunter Valley’s biggest names.
Today, De Iuliis wines are known for their trademark Hunter regionality and commitment to showcasing the very best the Hunter Valley has to offer. The Australian Wine Companion by James Halliday has been rating De Iuliis Wines a 5 star winery since 2010. The family’s vision is to continue producing wines of excellence and outstanding quality from individual paddocks, wines of distinction which they are proud to have their name on.
The Hunter Valley is renowned for producing some of the best Semillon in the world. This wine displays fresh, lifted citrus characters, a light palate, and crisp, zesty acids. It's the perfect match for seafood or any delicately flavoured dishes.
Is already settling into a sound drinking place. It's all strung on a taut line of acidity but the lemon, apple, hay and spice notes give something to enjoy now. That said, it shows all the signs that, over the medium term at least, it will mature deliciously. Screwcap. Drink: To 2024; Price: $18.00; Alcohol: 10.5%.

Great value in Hunter semillon, with immediate appeal in its fragrant lemon, pure grapefruit and zesty lime, and plenty of potential thanks to well-defined acidity, long, clean purity and soft texture. Best Drinking: 2013-2023; Rating: 93 Points; Tyson Stelzer; Wine Taste Weekly
