Keith Tulloch Ephemera Vermentino Pinot Gris

Keith Tulloch Ephemera Vermentino Pinot Gris

Keith Tulloch Ephemera Vermentino Pinot Gris

Fantastically versatile offering from Keith Tulloch -this special blend always generates exciting synergy, bringing out the best of both varieties.

Pinot Gris exhibits the dominant power at first, suppling the richer aromas of pear, and an exotic slinky fruit presence that stays on the palate with hints of finely spun honey. Vermentino brings bright, vibrant elements, contributing a lift of tangy citrus to both aroma and palate, plus a finely balanced accent of celery and fennel. It tempers the flavours of Pinot Gris with a precise savoury dryness and gives a crisp, mineral finish

The Pinot Gris is sourced from Southern NSW where the climate is hot and dry. This variety holds its acidity well, achieving maximum ripeness with beautifully refreshing balance. Fully ripe at harvest, the fruit showed strong and fresh ‘Williams’ pear perfumes with exotic hints of musk. Post-ferment, the wine was kept on yeast-lees with occasional battonage to add extra textural creaminess. This has generated a honeyed, velvety softness under the principal characters of pear and apple. The Vermentino fruit is sourced from the upper reaches of the Hunter Valley. The hot and sunny continental climate is ideally suited to this late ripening variety, and low yielding vines generate a distinctive and lively fruit expression.Typical of this variety, it possesses bright characters of white peach plus lemon at the fore, plus elemental herb notes of fennel, and subtler textural notes of crushed
almond. This variety’s savouriness and length are key elements to Ephemera’s blend magic.

Hunter

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.
