The Full Tasting Booklet from our 120 Years Retrospective Tasting.

Long before the wines were dusted off and the corks were popped, there was a great deal of digging and researching undertaken to secure the wines and information necessary to put this tasting into perspective.

Without knowing the vintage conditions and the historical milestones of how technology changed wine production throughout the years, the full experience of how well these wines were drinking after 6o odd years could never have been fully appreciated.

I give you the result below, our Retrospective Tasting Booklet.

Retrospective Tasting Booklet

The information you will find in this booklet includes:

JYT’s welcome to the Retrospective Tasting, the tasting program, parish map, rainfall data from 1905 – 2015, a summary of vintage conditions 1952 – 2015, a full list of all the wines tasted on the day, a detailed history of the Private Bin Pokolbin Dry Red Shiraz label and a timeline of Tulloch’s 120 year history.

I have also included some separate links below to some of the items which may be viewed more easily as separate documents:

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.
