David Hook Wines

New South Wales | Hunter Valley

Our Review

David Hook planted the Pothana vineyard in the mid-'80s, and the wines made from it are given the ‘Old Vines’ banner. This vineyard is planted on the Belford Dome, an ancient geological formation that provides red clay soils over limestone on the slopes and sandy loams along the creek flats; the former for red wines, the latter for white, which has proved an ideal site for the addition and development of Italian varieties pinot grigio, vermentino and pecorino. -JAMES HALLIDAY
