Keith Tulloch, Hunter Valley Semillon 2017
New South Wales
The Estate Semillon is sourced exclusively from Keith's own 50 year old unirrigated vines in his Hunter Valley vineyard at Hermitage Road in Pokolbin. It beams with sensational intensity of zesty lemon and lime-fruit plus fine dlicate perfumes and flavours of fresh cut lemongrass, white-flower, guava and fejoa. This gives the wine a citrus-zing energy, refined flavours, powder-like silkiness and wonderful length - all the hallmarks of this classic Hunter style and qualities that define its pedigree and potential.
Our Semillon is harvested from old vines planted on their own roots in 1968 at Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley. It is this deep and fine alluvial sandiness that makes the vineyard resource so significant � the vines consistently produce the purest and brightest signatures of Hunter Semillon. The Semillon was harvested then crushed, chilled and pressed immediately. Fermentation occurred using a selected pure yeast culture in stainless steel tanks, at cool to cold temperatures to maximise and retain varietal freshness.
�I cannot remember being more impressed with an initial release of wines than those�, said James Halliday when he first tasted Keith Tulloch�s wines. These thoughtful, hand-crafted wines hail from the Hunter Valley with a nod in part to the great Rh�ne Valley wines of Hermitage and Cote R�tie. For those who may have tasted any legendary Hunter Shiraz wines of the 40s, 50s and 60s, tasting many of the modern Hunter wines can be a depressing experience but Keith Tulloch is very different, adding to that great legacy with a series of wines that uniquely capture the exotic spice and hedonistic pleasure of dense and rich Shiraz fruit. These are sensuous, subtle wines with the velvety texture of fine burgundy.
