Single Vineyard Range
2018 Latara Vineyard Semillon
Variety: 100% Semillon
Vineyard: Keith Tulloch Latara Vineyard
Region: Pokolbin, Hunter Valley
Vine age: Vines planted in 1978
This single vineyard on Deasys Road, Pokolbin was established in 1978 on volcanic, clay and limestone soils. The site has a gentle rise with a Western aspect, providing plentiful sunlight for consistently outstanding fruit. This vineyard was purchased by Keith Tulloch Wine in 2017, and the first vintage of Latara Semillon was hand-picked, destemmed and then pressed in late January of 2018, before fermentation in a stainless steel tank.
Aromatically the wine has signature Semillon perfumes of lemongrass, lime and wet stone. On the palate, chalky, zesty intensity is layered with the bold flavour of lemon, green apple and sherbert, finishing with a softness and length of white melon and lime.
The vineyard has natural grace and power, a site simply demanding a single vineyard release such as this wine.
Drink: Now - 2030.
