What does a wine from 1952 really taste like?

There really is no better person to ask this question than Huon Hooke, one of Australia’s most renowned wine critics.

Also as a veteran and pioneer of professional wine critiquing, he is probably one of few people in the world who has seen many of these wines before at various stages of development.  More so, he has seen Tulloch Wines from our finest years in the 50’s,  from our demise into corporate ownership in the 70’s and to now as we continue our rise from the ashes, delivering a perspective to make these reviews truly compelling.

So it seems only fitting to share with you his take on the long awaited last bracket of the day from our 120th Tasting (for more on the tasting click here), A Retrospective of Private Bin Pokolbin Dry Red Shiraz 1952 – 2014.

We’re just a wee bit excited!

It is really hard not to get excited about reviews like this from Huon Hooke and James Halliday, two of Australia’s (and the worlds)  most respected wine critics.

This is our current vintage release of our flagship red wine, Hector Limited Release Shiraz.  Named after my great grandfather who brought the Tulloch name to prominence and put the Hunter Valley on the map in the 1950’s and 60’s.

If he is looking down from above as we celebrate our 120th year at Tulloch wines in 2015, I think he would be very proud to see this wine bearing his name.
