Keith Tulloch is a fourth generation Hunter Valley Winemaker, so the soils of Pokolbin and the wines of the Hunter Valley run deep in his blood. Keith is a qualified Winemaker, a Wine Judge, and Wine Consultant. In 1997 Keith began his own company, and produces wines under his own label focussing only on the traditional Hunter Valley varieties - Semillon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Shiraz, and more recently. Cabernet Sauvignon - sourcing grapes from only the best vineyard sites.
"This young Semillon already beams with bright and powerful lemon and lime/kafir - lime aromas along with exotic notes of tropical guava and green melon. This pure fruit zesty core is crowned by ethereal light hints of fennel and fresh herb. The flavours are silken and very long, dominated by a mix of ripe juicy lemon and gooseberry/kiwifruit, with subtle white-peach texture from start to finish, kept in tight focus with bright acidity." Keith Tulloch, Winemaker.
Delightful on its own or with seafood, prawns and/or oysters.
