Tulloch Hunter Valley Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Unusually, both components come from the Hunter Valley. The ripe fruits on the fore-palate is attractive enough, but it is the finish that defines the wine, with its urgent drive of unsweetened lemon and lime juice. Full of interest, and good value.

A handy twist in the straight-laced semillon category, this has an added layer of blackcurrant-tinged fruits, some basil leaf and then a good measure of semillon's lemon citrus. The palate's soft: melon flavours and easygoing texture make for approachable early drinking.

Sauvignon blanc from WA introduces some passionfruit, the drive and energy provided by the semillon, with lemony acidity on the finish, the mark of a top vintage.

There's restraint in this Hunter Valley blend, gently herbal, a hint of lanolin, pure flavours, subtle, delicate and dry. It's interestingly different from much of the style

With 114 years of experience, Tulloch is one of the pioneering names in Australian wine and continue to produce a solid and dependable range. Combining semillon from the Hunter Valley with sauvignon blanc from the cool of Canberra, the third instalment of this equal-parts blend is a dangerously drinkable wine where a rich and aromatic nose of passionfruit, granny smith apple, and lemon gives way to a delicate and crunchy mouthful of wine. The finish is snappy, dry, and beautifully executed.

Attractive wine at the price; the main contribution of the WA sauvignon blanc is to fill out the palate, but it also adds to the overall flavour, without diminishing the precision and focus of the wine.

Hunter semillon with a twist of gooseberry and citrus; a bright, lively and fresh wine.

This Hunter Valley white has easy drinkability, a good mouthfeel and a decent aftertaste.
