Audrey Wilkinson Vineyard and Cellar Door is one of the oldest wineries in the Hunter Valley wine region. Perched atop a foothill of the Brokenback Mountain Ranges, they produced the award-winning wines loved by many Australians and visitors from around the world.
Origin The Pokolbin subregion provides most of the grapes known as “Lower Hunter Valley.” Much of the rolling countryside around Pokolbin is under the vine with the traditional varieties Shiraz and Sémillon still dominating, but extensive plantings of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and the occasional plot of Pinot noir can be seen. The area is a thriving wine-growing region thanks to mountains that encircle three sides of the valley, the cloud cover, and afternoon easterly sea breezes, which help mitigate the blazing sunshine during summer and keep humidity moderated on the valley floor. Soil types vary from rich red volcanic soil from the long-extinct volcano of Mount View and sandy loam, which benefits the grapes to exhibit more complexity, delicacy, and fruit-driven characters.
