Keith Tulloch Wine Hunter Valley
An experienced Hunter Valley winemaker with stints at LINDEMANS and Rothbury Estate under hisbelt, Keith Tulloch now makes wine under his own name. Production is very small with only a few hundred cases of each wine in the first vintages but the wines are undoubtedly a fine distillation of Tulloch’s experience. They seem handmade in the best sense, very Hunter Valley with super Hunter fruit and intensity, excellent weight, texture and length of flavour. Above all, they are classy and complex. Unquestionably they will age impressively too (though a touch of barrel ferment makes the Sémillon broachable relatively early, though it will benefit from ageing); certainly they get better every time you taste them. The stylish fruit in the Forres Blend is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon but also from Merlot and Petit Verdot. The excellent Shiraz is now joined by a Shiraz Viognier. While not cheap the wines are very well-priced; the splendid Chardonnay and Sémillon are great value for money. Perdiem is for emerging varieties/wine styles and differs from year to year. An exotic, very richly botrytised sweet Sémillon is also ade.
