Keith Tulloch - Five generations of Wine Making

Since 1997, Keith Tulloch has been producing handmade wines of distinction at his family estate, nestled amidst Pokolbin’s rolling hills.

As a fourth-generation winemaker of the Tulloch dynasty, Keith adds his unique stamp to create wines that blend personality, style, and flair while showcasing the best characteristics of Hunter Valley Wine.

We’ve selected Keith’s 'The Kester' Shiraz, handmade using grapes from 85-year old vines and matured for 20 months in a mixture of fine French oak barriques. This beautiful wine expresses a dense, blood-plum colour and racy flavour energy, greeting the palate with a finely woven tapestry of gentle black fruits, dry spice, and deluxe French oak.

Shiraz Grapes

85 years old vines

The grapes are grown on a single vineyard for the past 85 years, giving the wine that extra level of fruit power. The fruit has a classic degree of ripeness and flavour with bright balance of natural acidity. The stable sunny conditions of Hunter valley give these red grapes full ripeness, with very rich colour and tannin development.

The Kester

20 year cellaring

‘The Kester’ has dense, blood-plum colour, racy flavor energy and seamless French oak integration. You are greeted by aromas of inky aniseed, cassis and dark spiced chocolate along with The Kester's rich, silken tannin character supporting superb balance and length. The quality of fruit from these 85-year old vines is obvious and commands cellaring - 20 years if you can resist the instant charm.

Keith & The Kester
