Keith Tulloch “McKelvey Vineyard” Shiraz, Hunter Valley (6 BOTTLE CASE DEAL)
This product is currently sold out.
A signature Aussie wine from one of the great producers.
A single vineyard Hunter Valley Shiraz identified by the combination of vine site and clone. Soils are rich red-brown clay loam overlying a base of powdery limestone, on a gentle hillside with a north to north-west aspect on Deasys Road, Pokolbin. Shiraz clone SA1658 was planted here in 1998 – notably identified and isolated originally by Keith's father, Dr Harry Tulloch in the 1960’s. The vineyard soils are rich red-brown clay loam overlaying a base of powdery limestone, on a gentle hillside wi th a north to northwest aspect on Deasys Road, Pokolbin. The fruit was hand picked with optimal ripeness, whole-bunches added to the vats to contribute velvety texture and a bright f loral perfume. Post ferment the vats were sealed for a further 4 weeks before pressing. The finished wine was matured for 12 months in fine French oak barriques, adding subtle elements of spice and complexity.
The aromas of this wine match the impressive colour; dark and laden with black fruit richness, paired to the subtle spice and creaminess of the oak bouquet. The length and intensity of black cherry, spiced plum and dark chocolate flavours prove the quality of this vineyard. The fresh lift, balance and tension of the finish points to many years of cellaring potential.
Filet mignon, aged cheddar.
