Verdelho Chambourcin / Hunter Valley / NewSouthWales
Tulloch decided to add a Moscato to their cellar door range. Unfortunately the weather gods had other ideas and Muscat grapes were off the agenda. Not to be deterred, Tulloch set about to make a style of wine in the same vein as Moscato from Verdelho. Verscato is Tulloch's slightly pink and slightly sparkling take on the more traditional Moscato style. Verscato is less than 8% alcohol, the perfect accompaniment for brunch, and positively lovely as an aperitif or dessert wine. Versatile and pretty, what more could you ask for?.

Verdelho / Hunter Valley / NewSouthWales
One of Hunter Valley's great winemaking estates, home to the nation's best known Verdelho. Originating from Portugal, traditionally used to make fortified wines such as Madeira, Verdelho has always enjoyed popularity in Australia, the Hunter Valley examples in particular are a class of their own. Tulloch sources the best grapes from good vineyards on the fertile river plains of Upper Hunter, to be assembled alongside smaller parcels from the Tulloch property at Pokolbin. A course of barrel ferments and oak treatments add a measure of richness and complexity.
 
The Tulloch story began in 1843 when James Tulloch arrived in Australia from his homeland of Scotland

In 1895, Jame's grandson, John Younie Tulloch (J.Y. Tulloch) owned the Branxton General Store and accepted an unusual settlement for a debt owed to him - a 43 acre property in nearby Pokolbin. Tulloch took an immediate liking to the property and the five acres of neglected Shiraz vines it contained and undertook his first foray into viticulture and winemaking, which began the family tradition.

 Tulloch

By the 1920's J.Y. Tulloch had established himself as the largest vigneron in the Hunter Valley and began a tradition of quality and excellence that is now synonymous with the Tulloch name. Hector Tulloch took over the reins of the family company, and was integral in bringing the family name to prominence throughout the 1950's when he developed the famous Pokolbin Dry Red and Hunter River White labels. Hector's legacy lives on in the Australian wine industry as a pioneering Hunter Valley winemaker.

In 1969 J.Y. Tulloch & Sons P/L was sold outside of the family for the first time to Reed Consolidated Publishing. In 1973 Jay Tulloch became General Manager and 50% of the company was sold from Reeds to Gilbey's Australia. From this point on mutliple ownerships changes occured as the company passed from Gilbey's to Castlemaine Tooheys to Penfolds, which was eventually sold to SA Brewing in 1992 and renamed Southcorp Wines.

By 1996 Jay Tulloch remained as General Manager of Southcorp's Hunter Valley operations, which included Hungerford Hill and another old Hunter name, Lindeman's Wines, as well as Tulloch. Jay retired form Southcorp in 1996 and in 1997 he and his wife, Julia Tulloch, started their own boutique operation, the JYT Wine Company. Under the direction of Jay and Julia Tulloch, the JYT Wine Company was founded in 1997 and gave Jay the opportunity to produce premium quality wines from his own small vineyard in the approachable style that had become his trademark.

 Tulloch

In 2001 the opportunity arose to buy back the old family company, J.Y. Tulloch & Sons P/L from Southcorp Wines. Unable to resist and with interest from long term friends and business associates Inglewood Vineyards the new era of J.Y. Tulloch & Sons began, with a Tulloch once again at it's helm and its commitment to quality Hunter Valley wines renewed.

A respected member of the Australian wine industry, Jay Tulloch has continued his family's proud tradition of viticulture and has contributed enormously to the shaping of the Hunter region along the way. Now his youngest daughter Christina joins him as the Operations Manager of the new cellar door which opened in December 2003.

Distribution through Angove's Wines, also a family owned business, ensures the unique historical tradition of the brand is preserved while allowing commercial viability to be explored. One of the Hunter's great winemaking names lives on with Tulloch and the job of producing approachable wines for all generations of wine drinkers continues.

Still located in Pokolbin's viticultural heartland where the story began in 1895, Tulloch remains as the true heritage of the Hunter Valley. Now in its 110th year the Tulloch name lives on as a founding wine producer of the Hunter region, continuing to strive for excellence in the production of premium Hunter varietals and styles. The current Tulloch range, which also features new labels, spans a broad varietal base and completes a portfolio produced from premium Hunter varietals, while mainaining a modest price base and approachable style.
