Tulloch Vineyard Selection Hunter Valley Semillon

Cracka Review

The fruit for this wine is sourced from the established award-winning Inglewood vineyard on the banks of the Hunter River. It is a crisp, fresh flavoured Semillon, with lifted citrus aromas and exceptional length. This wine is made to enjoy in its youth, but will reward medium term cellaring.

Appearance: Pale green straw

Nose: Lime zest and fresh spice.

Palate: Intense citrus notes harmonise with zesty sherbet and a citrus finish. Delicate notes of passionfruit give a rounded textural palate structured over a talc and mineral acid finish.

Food: Fresh seafood, oysters, prawns, bugs and crabs.

Cellaring: 5 – 10 years

Alcohol: 11.1%




Reviews and Accolades


The wine is light gold and has orange blossom scents. The front of the palate opens with ruby grapefruit flavour and the middle palate brings in lime zest, mineral and nascent honey characters. The finish shows flinty acid.
4.5 Stars - Newcastle Herald - John Lewis - 22.02.14.


A typical Hunter semillon with a pale colour; crisp, clean, youthful straw-like aromas and a crisp, high-acid, fresh palate of good length and some ageing potential.
90 Points - Sydney Morning Herald - Huon Hooke - 21.01.14.


The Hunter Valley is lauded internationally for its semillon but sadly too few Australians drink it. This is as crisp, refreshing and thrilling as the variety can be, wafting of cut hay to begin then zinging with lip smacking granny smith apple bite.
- Daily Telegraph - Tony Love - 07.12.13.


Delightfully lemony so have it with sour-puss; it’s bound to lighten them up. None of the pretence of sav blanc and pinot grigio.
8.5/10 - Daily Examiner - Max Cruz.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2013 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; simply underlines the quality of the vintage for Hunter Valley semillon; has all the hallmarks, simply needing a few years to open up all that is within the wine.

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Pale quartz; a strikingly vibrant and juicy palate, with lemon drop and green apple flavours, the acidity like a spear running through the wine, guaranteeing a long and prosperous life.
