2011 Tulloch Semillon CrackaWines Tyson Stelzer 91 Nick Stock 91
  • The Tulloch family have been making wine in the Hunter Valley since Adam was a boy. Okay, not quite that long but if anyone knows how to make great Hunter Valley Semillon then they are the ones to ask. And at less that 11% alcohol this juicy, fresh Semillon is the kind of wine you can sip a glass or two without pulling out the Panadol. Fish and chips special although go easy on the tartare.

  • Appearance: Pale straw with a green hue.

    Nose: Lifted notes of citrus, sweet pea and mineral aromas.

    Palate: Zesty citrus and flinty characters are balanced with a well structured acid backbone.

    Food: Oysters and seafood.
  • Tyson Stelzer says:

    An early drinking vintage for Tulloch semillon, with tropical fruits and mandarins, pulling into a fresh, zesty finish with nicely defined acidity.

    Nick Stock says:

    A bright, crisp and whisper-clean young semillon that offers plenty of lemon balm and lanolin on the nose; some faintly estery notes here too. The palate's juicy and not too aggressively pitched: solid waxy, musky melon-fruit flavours; some lemon sherbet too. Nice balance.

    Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says:

    Wow, are there some bargains to be found in the Hunter this year! Excellent purity of lemon, lime and spice with a long, seamless finish underlined by lovely minerality and focused drive.

    James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says:

    Bright, light straw-green; the bouquet is slightly less floral and more citrussy/grassy than Field of Mars; it has very good focus and length, with more mouthfeel than most, reflecting its marginally higher alcohol.

    Best Drinking: 2024

    James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says:

    A lively, crisp wine made from an Upper Hunter vineyard; mineral, grass and herbs lurk in the background, a touch of lemon in the foreground. Plenty to come.

    James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says:

    An extra dimension of flavour without sacrificing elegance, varietal character or regional character; that said, almost strays into young riesling territory, so delicious is the fruit. Gold medal Hunter Valley Wine Show '06.

    James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says:

    Light straw-green; spotlessly clean; fine, bright lemon/slate/herb/mineral flavours; vibrant mouthfeel; perfect fruit ripeness for the long haul.

    James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says:

    Very fleshy and full style, suggesting higher alcohol than 11°; best now, rather than later.

    Australian Wine Companion 2007 2006

    James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says:

    Classic fresh, young Semillon; sweet lemon/lemon rind; good balance and soft acidity.
