Keith Tulloch Hunter Valley Chardonnay 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

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. Ken Tulloch's aim with this chardonnay is to generate a powerful style with long concentrated flavours, while retaining vibrant freshness and a good potential for cellaring. For this Chardonnay, fully ripe fruit is sourced from old and low yielding vines, expressing concentrated citrus, pear, and pineapple characters, with elements of minerally complexity. Sophisticated barrel-fermentation in new French oak adds fine vanilla richness and spice to the bouquet and flavour. The Chardonnay receives minimal malo-ferment. The texture and flavour complexity is derived from solids-in-ferment, producing a fruit richness that persists well on to the finish. The result is a tight, bright, focussed wine: a concentrated nucleus of ripe fruit power, balanced with fine oak, and finishing with a clean racy acid.

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. These wines are hand-made with meticulous care, and epitomise the best qualities of Hunter Valley wine. All wines released have the style, balance, structure and integrity necessary for graceful maturation and cellaring. Winery production is very limited, with a combined output of only 12000 dozen per year. For Keith the greatest reward has been found - making his own wines with a unique stamp of personality, power and integrity - away from the mainstream, and with a individual style and flair.
