    Pinot Gris (88%) 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. The vibrant elements, though, come from Vermentino (12%), contributing a bright 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, such that the final length is purely Vermentino in nature, fading with soft, crunchy minerality.

  • 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.
