2021 Field of Mars Semillon B2

FIELD OF MARS - Single Vineyard Range                            

Field of Mars  Block 2 Semillon  2021

Variety:   100% Semillon

Region:    Pokolbin, Hunter Valley

Vineyard: Field of Mars Vineyard

Vine age: Vines planted in 1968

Soil:         Fine, sandy alluvial 

Tasting Note 

Planted in 1968 the fine white sand of this vineyard generates lovely purity of fruit, very direct and positive, zesty and bright. Fine fruit-weight, elegant varietal character, and crisp acidity were natural hallmarks of the Vintage.

Dominant aromatic characters of Meyer lemon show yellow citrus juiciness and zest, hints of ripe orange-grapefruit and finer notes of apple and lime. These fill the glass with added notes of sweet floral frangipani and jasmine. Everything amplifies as the wine breathes, building and opening to show more energy and flair.

Citrus fruits expand onto the palate with bright vibrant energy, like freshly squeezed lime and lemon, a delicate extension of the fruit with the crunchiness of natural acids. There is a finer, satin-soft juiciness plus the sustained, powder-soft texture of mineral and chalk, almost transparent yet tangy. Finer notes of red-apple stay onto the finish with a gentle receding softness, sustaining a greater flavour length than usual.

2022 Norlana Shiraz

Single Vineyard Range

2022 Norlana Vineyard Shiraz

Variety:     100% Shiraz

Region:     Upper Hunter Valley

Vineyard:  Norlana Vineyard  

Tasting Note

This special bottling is dedicated to the vineyard owner and grape grower Geoff Oldman, who supplied great quality Shiraz to us from 2015 - 2023, but sadly passed away in September 2023, aged 82.

Norlana is an outstanding vineyard just outside Denman in the Upper Hunter Valley, on a gentle hillside overlooking the confluence of the Goulburn and Hunter Rivers. The soil is a rich black clay flecked with iron-stone and red gravel, generating a perfumed and elegant style of Hunter Shiraz.

The sweet red-cherry, raspberry perfumes with a fine touch of cranberry, deliver freshness and elegance. Smooth and finely floral, with powdery fragrances of violet and lavender, beautifully fresh, lithe and light in expression, yet opulent.

Soft-fruits run along the palate, showing powder-soft flavours of raspberry and strawberry sherbet. This remarkably glossy texture continues with delicious velvety persistence, juicy red plum and red apple, finishing with hints of white pepper and nutmeg. Tannins are soft and creamy due to the whole-bunch nature of the fermentation, and the large format 1500litre oak foudre used for 12 months of aging.

2022 Latara Semillon

Single Vineyard Range

2022 Latara Vineyard Semillon                                           

Variety:      100% Semillon 

Vineyard:    Keith Tulloch Latara Vineyard

Region:       Pokolbin, Hunter Valley

Vine age:    Vines planted in 1978

Tasting Notes

In comparison to our other Semillon vineyards, this site has by far the darkest, richest clay soils. This results in a wine that has more body and power than our typical style but is truly expressive of the old vines on this unique site. Oriented East-West on a gently sloping block, these long rows of vines have plentiful sunlight, whilst the volcanic clay and limestone soils have good water-holding capacity that supports moderate shoot vigour. Therefore, the vines require minimal input for excellent quality and have consistently produced this single-vineyard wine since 2018.

The 2022 vintage was a cool year that delivered classically balanced and pure white wines, particularly for Semillon. The aromas of the wine are wonderfully primary and lifted, featuring lemonade-like ripe citrus fruit with complex traces of frangipani, chamomile and nashi pear. The palate is vivid and intense, umami roundness enveloping the central core of green apple, white pineapple and citrus. The extremely long persistence carries the flavour of grapefruit zest with a chalky, river-stone savouriness.

2021 Eagles Rest Chardonnay

Single Vineyard Range

2021 Eagles Rest Vineyard Chardonnay

Variety:   Chardonnay 100%

Vineyard: Eagles Rest Vineyard

Region:    Pokolbin, Hunter Valley

Vine Age:  Vines planted in 1970's by Don Maxwell

Tasting Note

The Eagles Rest Vineyard is sited in central Pokolbin, nestled on the high slopes of the Pokolbin Mountain foothills and enjoys the benefits of cooler sea breeze air flow during Summer. It is also a protected site from both rainfall and the hot mid-Summer sun, close up under the shoulder of the Brokenback Mountain Range.

The Chardonnay vines growing here relish the deep red volcanic-basalt and decomposed sandstone soils. Rows are steeply terraced facing South in this section, with the unique steepness of the vineyard contributing to wonderfully intense flavours and consistent quality.

 The mild weather of 2021 has given this wine a special reserve, with crystal-clear fruit detail, poise and balance. Fruit aromas are nectarine, yellow apple and golden pear, quite highly focussed and tense, with soft notes of quince and vanilla yoghurt. Flavours show classy reserve too, yellow to gold stone fruits with linear brightness, plus a subtle cashew-like roundness from wild-ferment.
