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.
Very good colour, bright and clear crimson-purple; the stellar vintage shines through - this may only be an entry point wine, but it encapsulates the region, vintage and variety in its medium-bodied frame. Apart from the plum and blackberry fruit, gently savoury tannins fill the gaps. Drink by: 2032; Price: $25.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2018; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 93 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
