2016 Field of Mars Semillon B2a

FIELD OF MARS - Single Vineyard Range                            

Field of Mars Semillon Block 2a 2016

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 real treasure - year-on -year these 50 year old Semillon vines produce exceptional varietal expression. The deep alluvial sand is key to preserving the grape's elegance and intensity, also enabling the juice to hold a natural core freshness, low pH and bright acidity.

Vintage: Cooler ripening weather with showers of rain in January 2016 leading into harvest. The very fine and pure Semillon fruit retained grape acidity for longer than normal, generating a notable degree of elegance in structure and balance.

Colour: fresh straw green flecked with a lime hue.

Aroma: Pure, centring on a focal point of scented Meyer lemon with hints of green apple. Intensity grows, with Tahitian-lime and white pineapple adding heightened steps of attractive perfume and tropical zest, with sweeter lemon still maintaining the flavour nucleus. A beautiful bouquet with timeless freshness.

Palate: The palate is similarly bright with pure yellow-citrus, shifting between lemon / lemon-curd and sweet lime, with finer sweet and pithy hints of pomelo and grapefruit giving delicious length and zesty persistence.The acidity is amazing, beautifully soft and yet showing sublime mineral-like crunchy focus, eventually fading to hints of white fig and a soft dusting of chalk.                                                                                                                                                                                                                Cellaring: Very enjoyable now 4 years of age, yet will easily age for another 15 years.

Region: Hunter Valley

Tasting Notes

This wine was previously known as Epogée

The boldness of this wine is obvious even in how it presents in the glass, with a strong lemon-yellow colour with flecks of green.

Aromatically, this wine is really in a class of its own. All three varieties contribute differently to the bouquet: Marsanne (47%) gifts the highlights of fresh citrus and pear, sweet lemon and fig. Roussanne (43%) fills out the fruit accents of ripe apple, honey, and fine herb tea. 

Finally, a dash of Viognier (10%) brings bright and floral distinction, with clear notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom plus hints of jasmine. 

The characteristics of each variety add a different character to the aroma and this complexity carries on throughout the palate of the wine. The Marsanne and Roussanne combine perfectly for pear, fig and macadamia flavours that are lush, layered and textured whilst viognier confers a nectarine tang with fine cardamom-like spiciness. These three varieties were fermented individually in French oak barrels before blending, which supports these layers of texure with subtle spice and creaminess onto the finish.

2020 PERDIEM 'Sitio' Semillon

2020 PERDIEM 'Sitio' Semillon

Variety:       100% Semillon
Region:       Hunter Valley
Vine Age:    Planted in 1968

Vineyard :   Keith Tulloch Estate

Tasting Note

Sitio ( Verb - Latin): 'I'm thirsty'

                        

This snappy, bright Semillon is the perfect refreshment. We make this wine in a way that emphasises Semillon's most tantalising aromas and flavours. On the nose, its a melange of crushed pear, pineapple, lime and meringue. The palate springs out of the glass with tang and flavour, just a hint of Campari-like sherbert with lemon-lime, guava, green apple and lychee.

Pop it in the fridge or ice bucket immediately, and serve chilled.

Drink: Now.
Food Match: Spicy Asian dishes, semi soft cheese with a fresh fruit plate.
