Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Australian Wine Companion 2014 Edition 2013
Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
A pure and focused vintage for Keith Tulloch, with excellent fruit profile of taut lime, kaffir lime leaf, granny smith apples and fine, crunchy acid structure.
Wine100, December Edition 2012
James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
A pure, fresh and tightly wound bouquet of lemon, lemongrass and ginger; the palate is taut and racy with linear acidity, mineral complexity and a little generosity to make early drinking a fair proposition, cellaring more so.

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
An 'A team' Hunter semillon vineyard in the hands of one of its most intellectual makers has produced a wine from a warmer season with more poise, texture and longevity than most. It's at once soft and structured, gentle and mineral, approachable and age worthy.
James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
The same colour as Field of Mars; one of the more powerful Hunter semillons with its highly focused palate; ripe lemon flavours drive through the long palate, underpinned by acidity. However good it is now, it will be in another league in 5 years time, as it really starts its life.

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.

Delicate crisp and very drinkable in youth these wines grow with age.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Vibrant colour; green nettle, lemon and straw bouquet; lemon and green apple palate; tightly wound and needs time to gain generosity and weight; will richly repay cellaring as the '07 and '03 prove.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Pure Hunter, with good concentration and an abundance of tightly wound lemon fruit; will go the distance.
Australian Wine Companion 2009 2008
James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Ultra-classic and ultra-refined; the quality now is in the marvellously long finish and aftertaste, which will build on the mid-palate with age.
Australian Wine Companion 2008 2007
James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Museum Release. Brilliant green-quartz; as fresh as a daisy, its lemon citrus flavours enhanced by bottle age, but still to develop the honey and toast that will come in the future. Only 950 dozen were produced, this release being a small fraction of that total.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
The Hunter Valley Wine Show is the ultimate testing ground for semillon. Repeated success here for production minnow Keith Tulloch is especially significant. Sophisticated crafting results in a silken web of complexity and an alluring future.
Australian Wine Companion 2006 2005
James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Herb, spice and lanolin aromas with much more flavour and texture (a touch is barrel-fermented) than usual. Lemon, lemongrass and crunchy acidity to close. Trophy 2003 Hunter Valley Wine Show Best Current Vintage Dry White Wine.
Australian Wine Companion 2005 2004
James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; a complex and intense bouquet shows herb and mineral, with just the barest hint of oak. The long palate builds intensity progressively, the oak contributing to the texture rather than the flavour. Every bit as impressive as the 2000. Only 400 cases made.
