Field of Mars Block 2A Semillon 2015

Variety:      100% Semillon 

Vineyard:    Keith Tulloch Latara Vineyard

Region:       Pokolbin, Hunter Valley

Vine age:    Vines planted in 1978

Tasting Notes

This single vineyard on Deasys Road, Pokolbin was established in 1978 on volcanic, clay and limestone soils. The site has a gentle rise with a Western aspect, providing plentiful sunlight for consistently outstanding fruit. This vineyard was purchased by Keith Tulloch Wine in 2017, and the first vintage of Latara Semillon was hand-picked, destemmed and then pressed in late January of 2018, before fermentation in a stainless steel tank.

Aromatically the wine has signature Semillon perfumes of lemongrass, lime and wet stone. On the palate, chalky, zesty intensity is layered with the bold flavour of lemon, green apple and sherbert, finishing with a softness and length of white melon and lime.

The vineyard has natural grace and power, a site simply demanding a single vineyard release such as this wine. 

Drink: Now - 2030.

2015 Field of Mars Semillon Block 2a

FIELD OF MARS - Single Vineyard Range                            

Field of Mars Semillon Block 2a 2015

Variety:   100% Semillon

Region:    Pokolbin, Hunter Valley

Vineyard: Keith Tulloch Field of Mars Vineyard

Vine age: Vines planted in 1968

Tasting Note 

The tiny 0.25 hectare Block 2a vineyard planted in 1968, is a special site with the deepest drifts of fine white river-sand, which inherently generates the purest expression of Semillon. This little “island of vines” – surrounded on three sides by meandering dry-stream-beds – consistently produces the finest elements of classic structure and balance, and that magical combination of delicacy and extreme length. The Vintage 2015 generated very special whites with exceptional finesse, combining a striking clarity of fruit energy with fine, delicate litheness.

Colour: Pale, crystal clear straw green.

Aroma: The white-sand of the Field of Mars Block 2a delivers Semillon fruit with extraordinary focus, centred on the hallmark aromatic intensity of lime juice and lemon zest, and here it is wonderfully supported by ripples of crunchy grapefruit and lime-shred marmalade.

Palate: On the palate, the yellow-citrus purity is sovereign, and it bestows sublime lustrous quality with effortless grace, pushing out to a long fine finish which persists with the precise tangy freshness. Delicious hints of mineral and chalk stay on the palate along with an exquisite lift of white fig and pineapple.

Cellaring potential: The 2015 Field of Mars Semillon is flawless, showing the pedigreed line with all of the traits for great cellaring beyond 15 years.

Variety: 40% Roussanne | 30% Viognier |30% Marsanne  
Region: Hunter Valley 

Vineyard : Keith Tulloch Estate, 688 Vineyard

Vine Age : 15 - 50 years

Epogee is a 100% Hunter blend; the titan in our white wine line-up. The colour shows bright straw green, with a deeper core of yellow. Bold aromatic signatures: powerful golden peach and ripe nectarine at its core, with musk, yellow jasmine, white honey and pear all combining with a rich perfumed harmony.

The palate is all about plushness, velvet depth and texture; Viognier (30%) delivers a luxurious layer of golden fruit silkiness.

Tasting Note

The soils are rich red-brown clay loam overlying a base of powdery limestone, on a gentle hillside with a north to north-west aspect.

Chardonnay clone I10V5 consistently produces ultra-bright ripe fruit showing strong aromas of white flowers, vanilla wafer and ripe peach through to the core flavours of white chocolate and peaches, cashew butter and honeydew melon with a vibrant citrus acidity.

2015 Field of Mars Chardonnay Block 6

FIELD OF MARS - Single Vineyard Range                            

Field of Mars Chardonnay Block 6 2015

Variety:   100% Chardonnay

Region:     Pokolbin, Hunter Valley

Vineyard:  Keith Tulloch Field of Mars Vineyard

Vine Age:  Vines planted in 1968

Tasting Note                                              

Close planted in 1968, this dry farmed Chardonnay vineyard is a rarity, particularly planted with ‘Busby clone P58’, recognised amongst the strongest Chardonnay clones. This small 0.25 hectare plot is a very special resource, as it produces incredibly intense fruit character each vintage whilst retaining a lithe, delicate balance. Our vines are grown in the same deep sand as the Semillon 2a, and I’m sure that is key to this wine’s inherent quality. This wine proves again that country that is perfect of growing exceptional Hunter Semillon is also perfect for outstanding Chardonnay. The fine sands of Block 6 are ideal for both, generating beautiful fruit balance with the key chemistry for world-class greatness.                                                    

Colour: Positive hue, bright straw green and yellow.

Aroma: Fine fruit perfumes reveal crunchy white-peach and nectarine with vibrant brightness. This 2015 Chardonnay was whole-bunch pressed to give pure elegant length.

Palate: The palate sits in wonderful fruit unison; ripe stone-fruit commanding throughout, threaded with the luxurious satiny softness of brown fig and canary / honeydew melon, all held in poise by youthful stalky astringency.

                                                    

The best of deluxe French oak is intricately woven into the aroma too, with fine vanilla perfumes melding into the fruit, recurring on the palate with such sheer softness that it could be fresh fruits flecked with honey.

Cellaring potential: Keep it if you can, best drinking between 7 – 12 years.

2017 Botrytis Semillon

2017 Hunter Valley Botrytis Semillon

Variety:  100% Semillon
Region:  Hunter Valley
Vine Age:  40+ years old

Vineyard:  Bainton Vineyard

Tasting Notes

Showing sumptuous colour in the glass, with bright golden-yellow plus flashes of luminous green.

Aromatically, this delicious dessert style wine reveals pure waves of tropical fruit, lifted with zesty freshness of cumquat and orange peel, its candied richness mixing with warmer, deeper scents of honeysuckle and nectare.

Flavours are intense, coating the tongue with the lush super-ripe sweetness of pineapple, tangerine, apricot, orange, and golden nectarine, all drizzled with macadamia, honey and vanilla. French oak has contributed extra elements of silky flavour softness and sweeter oak mouth feel, accentuating the beautiful hints of creme brulee and toffee onto the finish.

At this young stage the palate finishes with bright zest and acidity, giving the wine's lusciousness an elegance and refined freshness. Over time, the palate will develop depth and richness, building to an incredibly complex fruit-and-toffee power over 5 - 9 years.

Drink: Delicious now to 2026.

Tasting Notes

Recolo ( Verb - latin) : 'I remember'

               

This fresh, inviting Rosé is worth remembering. First, there are the aromas, like crushed raspberries and rosewater; the flavours that follow are racy blood orange zest, cherry, pomegranate and watermelon. To finish there's a bead of red-grape texture and crunchy pink lady apple, enough to remind you that you're drinking a crisp, dry Rosé.

2017 Hunter Valley Shiraz Viognier

2017 Hunter Valley Shiraz Viognier

Variety:  Shiraz (95%) | Viognier (5%)
Region:  Hunter Valley
Vine Age:  40+ years old

Tasting Notes

Impressively deep colour, dense red/black, showing a vibrant crimson rim.

The nose is powerful with the commanding authority of black cherry Shiraz aromas (95%), as well as honeysuckle and floral perfumes of Viognier ( 5%). Deluxe French oak simmers softly in the background, contributing spicier accents of vanilla, cinnamon, and fine, bergamont-tinged black tea. Flavours are dense and smooth, with the magic of  Shiraz and Viognier co-fermentation; the black cherry and black raspberry core flavours are sublimely softened be chocolatey roundness, generating a plush unity of fruit and tannin. Fine oak provides gentle support throughout, a tightly packed foundation with lovely balance and depth.

This will be a vintage to remember, with stellar harvesting conditions and fruit condition, this Shiraz-Viognier already shows delightfully fresh expression and charm, appealing for immediate drinking or medium term cellaring.

Variety:     100% Shiraz

Region:     Pokolbin, Hunter Valley

Vineyard:  McKelvey Vineyard 

Vine Age:  Vines planted in 1998

Tasting Note

A single vineyard Hunter Valley Shiraz identified by the combination of vine site and clone. Soils are rich red-brown clay loam overlying a base of powdery limestone, on a gentle hillside with a north to north-west aspect on Deasys Road, Pokolbin. Shiraz clone SA1658 was planted here in 1998 – notably identified and isolated originally by my father, Dr Harry Tulloch in the 1960’s.

The aromas of this wine match the impressive colour; dark and laden with black fruit richness, paired to the subtle spice and creaminess of the oak bouquet. The length and intensity of black cherry, spiced plum and dark chocolate flavours prove the quality of this vineyard. The fresh lift, balance and tension of the finish points to many years of cellaring potential.

Variety:       Shiraz (99%) | Viognier (1%)
Region:       Hunter Valley, single heritage listed vineyard
Vineyard:    Bainton Vineyard

Vine Age:    Planted on own roots in 1923

Tasting Notes

A beautiful example of our flagship wine, showing all of the concentration, power and structure expected from such ancient vines.

Colour is brilliant red/black with fine purple freshness at the rim. the aromas show a wealth of fruit - jammy blackberry and inky cherry, plum and hints of fresh red raspberry, underscored by the classic Kester savoury notes of garrigue/ crushed herb and black olive.

Flavours are bright and direct, showing muscular structure with taut focus. Pristine fruits are packed in with sustained intensity spanning the flavour spectrum, from red cherry through to blackberry to black olive, moderated by supple mocha, spice and oak tannin. As it sits in the glass, the 'terroir' savouriness becomes even richer, adding deeper velvety notes of liquorice, herb, coffee, smoke and game.

Cellaring for at least 3 years is essential to allow the Kester to bloom, with at least a decade of development capacity to follow. Keep it even longer if you can for the best rewards.
