Keith Tulloch Chardonnay

Keith Tulloch Chardonnay

Keith Tulloch Chardonnay – This is a tight, bright, focused wine with a finer nucleus of fruit than usual, and this texture, balance and fine oak will therefore take longer in the bottle to integrate and develop. These characters open out with breathing to reveal the typical barrel ferment funkiness – peach, melon and passionfruit plus hints of smoky vanilla oak – combining in a harmonious Burgundy-like balance.

Keith Tulloch Chardonnay has 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: Delicious now to 2026.
Food Match: Shellfish, poultry dishes, and soft cheeses.

New South Wales

The Hunter Region is the premium wine region of New South Wales and one of Australia’s most well-known, and historically important wine regions. Distinctive styles of Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz are the hallmark of this region. James Busby the man credited with bringing the vine to Australia was associated with the Hunter Valley through his brother-in-law William Kelman. Kelman is thought to be the first to plant vines in the Hunter. George Wyndham planted grapes in 1832. Penfolds bought the property in 1904 naming it Wyndham Estate. Dr Henry Lindeman purchased land around Raymond Terrace in the 1830s. So too did James King whose legacy passed onto Maurice O’Shea who came to the forefront of Hunter Valley winemaking in the 1920s. The area fell into depression for many years, but gradually made a comeback in the early 1960s. Today the region is booming. The climate is regarded as warm to hot. The main wine styles: White – Semillon (regarded as one Australia’s greatest and unique wines, with great aging potential), Chardonnay; Red – Shiraz.
