2018 Latara Vineyard Semillon

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

Tasting Notes

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.

2018 Hunter Valley Semillon

2018 Hunter Valley Semillon

Variety:  100% Semillon
Region:  Hunter Valley
Vine Age:  Planted in 1968

Vineyard : Keith Tulloch Estate

Tasting Notes

A classic Semillon pure and fine, with bright green straw colour highlights. Aromas are zesty and intense, brimming with lemonade, lemongrass, ripe lime and soft orange grapefruit. Delicate floral hints of green-clover flower build nuanced complexity. The flavours are precise and detailed, showing primary juicy lemon brightness with satiny length, finishing with a slight pithy tang and crunchy, energetically fresh persistence.

There is a great cellaring future ahead. Beautiful harmony will begin to develop within 1-2 years, while 5 to 10 years will elevate this regal youngster into a classic Hunter Semillon.

Drink: Now to 2028.
Food Match: Fresh oysters, and prawns.

2017 McKelvey Vineyard Shiraz

Single Vineyard Range

2017 McKelvey Vineyard Shiraz

Variety:     100% Shiraz

Region:     Pokolbin, Hunter Valley

Vineyard:  McKelvey Vineyard 

Vine Age:  Vines planted in 1998

Tasting Note

A single vineyard Hunter Valley Shiraz identified by the combination of vine site and clone. Soils are rich red-brown clay loam overlying a base of powdery limestone, on a gentle hillside with a north to north-west aspect on Deasys Road, Pokolbin. Shiraz clone SA1658 was planted here in 1998 – notably identified and isolated originally by my father, Dr Harry Tulloch in the 1960’s.

The aromas of this wine match the impressive colour; dark and laden with black fruit richness, paired to the subtle spice and creaminess of the oak bouquet. The length and intensity of black cherry, spiced plum and dark chocolate flavours prove the quality of this vineyard. The fresh lift, balance and tension of the finish points to many years of cellaring potential.

Single Vineyard Range

2017 Bainton Vineyard Shiraz    

Varieties: 100% Shiraz      

Vineyard: Bainton Vineyard

Region:    Fordwich, Hunter Valley

Vine age: Vines planted in 1923, 1942 and 1955

Tasting Note                                       

The vineyard blocks are situated at the base of the Brokenback Range in Broke Fordwich. Tony and Judy Bainton have grown the fruit for our wines from this heritage-listed vineyard for almost twenty years.

This single outstanding dry-grown vineyard has an East-West row orientation on colluvial soil: deep, dark gravel fringing on rocky sandstone hills. The Shiraz from this vineyard shows native garrigue and eucalypt aromas, flavours of dark raspberry, red liquorice, coconut and dark chocolate with considerable colour and structure, emphasized by extended skin contact and 18 months of French oak barrel maturations in 225L barriques. 

Drink: Now – 2030.

2018 PERDIEM 'Pario' Pinot Gris

Variety:   100% Pinot Gris
Region:   Premium vineyard areas in New South Wales Australia

Tasting Notes

Pario ( Verb - Latin): ‘Bring forth’

The true varietal characters of musk and green apple offer bright, refreshing aromas lifting out of the glass. Nutty spice and the waxy textures of macadamia and barley carry through on the palate with the fruit flavours of white peach, pear and lime zest. A lovely balance of fruit and exotic spice that complements a wide variety of foods and appeals instantly. 

Pop it in the fridge or ice bucket immediately, and serve chilled.
