Keith Tulloch Semillon

£18.38
These thoughtful, hand-crafted wines hail from the Hunter Valley with a nod in part to the great Rhône Valley wines of Hermitage and Cote Rôtie. 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.

Latara 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 optimal ripening. This is a classic Hunter Valley Semillon with pale colour - green straw purity flecked with lemon-tinged hints.The aromas of a young Semillon are often subtle, however this wine has an enticing tropical bouquet of lime juice, lemonade zest and distinctive hints of guava. The palate of the wine has the fine and delicate structure that Semillon purists will revel in, showcasing ripe lime juice flavours which run with terrific focus and length. The finish of the flavour is long and fresh, lasting with tangy lemon-zest and hints of pink grapefruit.
