From the De Iuliis “Estate” range, this young Verdelho combines careful Hunter Valley winemaking with an excellent vintage to punch well above its weight.

About the Winery
A James Halliday 5-star winery for ten years now, De Iuliis (think “Julius”, minus the “J”) is a third- generation family-run business.
While the family began their business with most fruit sold to other winemakers, son Michael De Iuliis has overseen a 20-year shift towards full wine production for the De Iuliis label, with a handsome architect-designed winery and cellar door building now standing on the 30ha Pokolbin property.
