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.
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.
5 generations of wine making
Keith and Amanda founded Keith Tulloch wine in 1997, with miniscule production of only 250 dozen. Keith himself is a fourth-generation Hunter Valley winemaker of the Tulloch dynasty, a family that can trace winemaking heritage across three centuries. Keith attended Roseworthy Collage’s prestigious school of winemaking in South Australia before returning to hone his craft locally at Mount View Estate, Hungerford Hill, Lindeman’s and Rothbury Estate.
