2018 Field of Mars Shiraz B1

FIELD OF MARS - Single Vineyard Range                            

Field of Mars Shiraz Block 1 2018

Variety:     100% Shiraz

Region:      Pokolbin Hunter Valley

Vineyard:   Keith Tulloch Field of Mars Vineyard

Vine Age:   Vines planted in 1968

Soils:         Dark cracking clay

Tasting note

Complex aromas show the best of old-vine intensity, combining concentrated blackcurrant and blueberry, dark aniseed and black peppercorn. Swirling in the glass reveals earthy spice and clove below the fresh perfumed floral charm of juniper and rosemary.

The palate shows tightly woven Syrah fruit power, mouth-filling richness, black-cherry, inky anise and cola, black pepper, black olive, and black chocolate. Fine French oak wood-spice flavours of cedar, bramble, and fine black tea sit in the background. The combination is so well reinforced and prolonged: dense, solid black fruit intensity with tongue-staining, firmly imbedded tannins. The complete package.

This is a wine of magnitude for the long haul.

Decant before pouring until it is 10 years from Vintage.

Tasting Notes

There is a beautifully natural harmony in this 2021 Semillon – perfectly ripe and perfectly fresh – the result of cool Summer weather with mild conditions through to harvest. Bright green-straw colour, glints of emerald with light pastel-yellow flecks. The aromas are vibrant ripe lemon through to scented lemon-myrtle, subtle fragrances of zesty kaffir-lime and hints of tropical zest. The palate is pure and precise, with core flavors of freshly squeezed lemon and lime. True to style, these golden lemony flavors have an elegant length and a fine tangy lift. The sensation is light yet effortlessly long, lemonade-like with ripe fruit sweetness upheld by a bright and vital freshness.

The 2019 Shiraz Viognier shows wonderful black fruit perfumes of super-ripe black-cherry with background hints of pretty white-flower jasmine.

Co-fermenting has gifted an extra degree of lift and length to the palate, combining the flavours for a great young drinking style.

This wine is handmade for my wife Amanda, who loves aromatic and gentle reds.          

Tasting Notes  

Bright crimson-red with deep inky density, plus fresh purple and indigo-blue at the rim

Signature aromas reveal layer-upon-layer of floral expression –jasmine and honeysuckle, with deeper damask perfumes of rose-musk and pink rose-petal, black and red fruits twine together in a mix of sweet Kirsch black-cherry and briar-raspberry. Black berry shiraz flavours are super ripe, rich and satiny, deliciously long and lavishly coated with a black-chocolatey smoothness.

Deluxe oak-spices are generous on both the bouquet and palate: cinnamon and fine sandalwood contribute gentle silken tannins with spicy lift. The palate has luxurious texture and elegant softness, a refined power that delivers undeniable quality with sophisticated grace and finesse.

2018 Field of Mars Semillon B2a

FIELD OF MARS - Single Vineyard Range                            

Field of Mars Semillon Block 2a 2018

Variety:   100% Semillon

Region:    Pokolbin, Hunter Valley

Vineyard: Keith Tulloch Field of Mars Vineyard

Vine age: Vines planted in 1968

Soil:         Fine, sandy alluvial 

Tasting Note 

The minerality of the Block 2A terroir generate tightly coiled aromas of pure juicy meyer-lemon with flecks of pith and zest, terrific fresh focus and energy. As the aromas open up, scents of fresh lemon-grass and enticing hints of spearmint are revealed.

The flavours are concentrated with zesty power: green and yellow citrus in a focussed beam of fresh juiciness and bright pithy tang. These citrus fruits fill the mouth with vibrant energy, yet the palate is light and fine, like freshly squeezed lime and lemon juice, showing transparently fine texture and poise. The finish is extraordinarily long, a swallowtail of minerality. This brightness, energy, line and length is crucial, giving perfect youthful balance now and true potential for great cellaring.
