2018 McKelvey Vineyard Chardonnay

Single Vineyard Range

2018 McKelvey Vineyard Chardonnay

Variety:     100% Chardonnay       

Vineyard:  McKelvey Vineyard

Region:     Pokolbin, Hunter Valley               

Vine age:  Vines planted in 1998                                                 

Tasting Note

The soils are rich red-brown clay loam overlying a base of powdery limestone, on a gentle hillside with a north to north-west aspect.

Chardonnay clone I10V5 consistently produces ultra-bright ripe fruit showing strong aromas of white flowers, vanilla wafer and ripe peach through to the core flavours of white chocolate and peaches, cashew butter and honeydew melon with a vibrant citrus acidity.

This Chardonnay fruit was hand-harvested, whole-bunch pressed and then barrel fermented in deluxe oak giving creamy softness, building layers of class and style throughout. The wine was left sur-lees for 7 months, retaining the pure primary fruit expression.

Drink: Now - 2026. 

180 dozen made.

Food Match: Classic slow roast chicken, soft cheeses.

2018 Hunter Valley Chardonnay

2018 Hunter Valley Chardonnay

Variety:  100% Chardonnay
Region:  Hunter Valley
Vine Age:  20+ years old

Vineyard : 688 Vineyard

Tasting Notes

A fine bright colour showing exceptional green hue and freshness. Aromatically, the notes are vibrant with great fruit drive, white fig perfumes mix with nectarine, pineapple and yellow melon. Beautiful elements of deluxe French oak support and deepen the bouquet, with delicate vanilla spiciness adding warmth and softness.

The palate glides with the wonderful harmony of primary and malolactic barrel fermentation; the mouth feel is yoghurt-like and glossy, with superb texture and persistence. Melon and fig flavours predominate, yet nectarine and pineapple brightness provides lift and focus onto a long finish.
Drink: Now to 2026.
Food Match: Shellfish, poultry dishes, and soft cheeses.

2018 PERDIEM 'Recolo' Rosé

2018 PERDIEM 'Recolo' Rose

Variety:   100% Shiraz
Region:   Hunter Valley

Tasting Notes

Recolo ( Verb - latin) : 'I remember'

               

This fresh, inviting Rosé is worth remembering. First, there are the aromas, like crushed raspberries and rosewater; the flavours that follow are racy blood orange zest, cherry, pomegranate and watermelon. To finish there's a bead of red-grape texture and crunchy pink lady apple, enough to remind you that you're drinking a crisp, dry Rosé. 

Pop in the fridge or ice bucket immediately and serve chilled. Drink tonight with good food and company.

Food Match: Chicken, pork belly, and salads.

Pario ( Verb - Latin): ‘Bring forth’

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. 

Drink: Now - 2030.
