A typical expression of Hunter Valley Semillon, with modest alcohol and crisp acids. Struck flint and lime custard mark the nose, while the flavors suggest the dust of crushed stones and citrus. Drink now–2017.
This is a mature example of Hunter Shiraz, showing the leathery notes that made the region famous, combined with hints of cinnamon, clove and dried cherries. It’s soft, velvety and ready to drink, whereas the 2005 appears to have greater potential ahead of it.
Clean, fruity and fresh, Keith Tulloch’s regular Chardonnay offers peach, pear and green plum fruit along with scents of struck flint and a plump, slightly creamy texture. Drink it over the next few years.
