2014 Museum Semillon

2014 Hunter Valley Museum Semillon

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

Vineyard : Keith Tulloch Estate

Tasting Notes

Colour is bright green straw with subtle flecks of fresh opalescent yellow, almost unchanged from when it was put to glass.

Aromas are vibrant too : lemon and lime are the central focus, with enticing hints of fresh-cut yellow apple.

Flavours are just as compelling: ripe lime and juicy Meyer-lemon mix equally, with delicious light-satin finesse and vivid citrus detail.

Yellow apple-like characters chime in across the mid-palate, with riper honeyed-fruit roundness and crunchy freshness.

The structure is terrifically tense and energetic, with a fine brightness of acidity unifying and elevating all flavours into a crisp, tangy, slightly pithy finish. 

At 7 years of age this Museum Semillon displays superb primary fruits, a natural brightness, inherent strength and elemental purity, a classic example of Hunter Semillon timelessness.

It’s delicious drinking now, but what you see now will only get better. Another 3 or 4 years in the cellar would be perfect.

2016 Fortified Viognier

2016 Fortified Viognier

Variety: 100% Viognier

Style: A Rare Barrel Aged Fortified

Tasting Note

Rich apricot, tangerine, treacle tart and complex spice aromas .

 Powerful orange fruits weave throughout – super-ripe apricot to the fore plus mandarin and cumquat – delivering glossy, mouth-filling sweetness with tangy freshness. This Viognier has been fortified using premium brandy spirit and this essential detail dove-tails into the mix, generating palate spiciness and lift that is totally unified.

 This fortified Viognier has aged for 5 years in one set of French oak barrels, evolving luscious mid-palate elements of Crème Brûlée, and fresh hints of almond nougat onto the long satin-soft finish. Lingering wisps of brandy-snap and ginger remain on the palate, showing evolution of richness to come.

2018 Field of Mars Chardonnay B6 and 4

FIELD OF MARS - Single Vineyard Range                            

Field of Mars Chardonnay Block 6 & 4 2018

Variety:   100% Chardonnay

Region:     Pokolbin, Hunter Valley

Vineyard:  Keith Tulloch Field of Mars Vineyard

Vine Age:  Vines planted Block 6 in 1968, Block 4 in 2014

Soils:        Fine, sandy alluvial

Tasting Note                                              

The FOM 2018 Chardonnay is a great ‘transitional’ story, being from two blocks of Chardonnay, only 50m apart.

  • Block 6 is a tiny section of Chardonnay clone P58 planted in 1968, which has been the source block of all FOM Chardonnays since 2009. Very low yield, lovely expressive fruits with finesse and length.
  • In 2014 we planted another, Block 4 which is close planted Chardonnay Clone 548 on Paulson rootstock. This block has twice the vine number per hectare, using a Burgundy principle of single guyot pruning. This clone is new in Australia with powerful and complex fruit expression, ultra-low yielding.

Elegant fruit aromas of fully-ripe white peach, nectarine plus tangy scents of pineapple. Wild ferment gives a gentle wash of nougat, oyster-shell and flint. Fine French oak lifts with understated notes of vanilla and hazelnut.

The striking palate feature of this wine is the elaborate fruit expression, energy, and complexity with length. This primary focus is bold and juicy, fresh peach, creamy soft-fig and crunchy-yellow-apple bond with long-lasting subtle finesse. Elaborate highlights of lemon yoghurt and pistachio nougat – from wild-ferment in barrel –build in the glass. Soft French oak completes with a satin-soft mouthfeel. These opulent flavours all unite along a vibrant line of acidity, giving that unwavering zest and freshness, designed for a long future.

Not yet in full reveal, the complex elemental nature of this wine will amplify over the next 7 to 10 years.

2018 Field of Mars Semillon Block 2a

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.

2019 MRV

MRV 2019

Variety: 47% Marsanne | 43%  Roussanne  | 10% Viognier
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.

2021 Field of Mars Viognier B1

FIELD OF MARS - Single Vineyard Range                            

Field of Mars Viognier Block 1 2021

Variety:   100% Viognier

Region:     Pokolbin, Hunter Valley

Vineyard:  Keith Tulloch Field of Mars Vineyard

Soils:       Transitionary from rich clay, through to pebbly rocks and onto sandy alluvium

Tasting Note                                              

Viognier delivers generous blossoms of fruit and flower, usually described as apricot, orange blossom, and musk, yet this is just the starting point. Exotic perfumes of tangerine, jasmine, and banksia honey, and finer spicy hints of ginger and vanilla complete the full-spectrum of Viognier’s hedonistic expression.

Opulent flavours, lush and powerful, yellow-peach and amber-apricot with terrific sweet-beeswax persistence – a literal flavour honeycomb of luxuriant softness. French oak has integrated seamlessly into the mid-palate, giving more mouthfeel with delicate hints of Assam-tea and fine buttered pastry. Fresh acidity lifts these deliciously long flavours with an elegant tang, persisting with light savoury wisps of fresh ginger-bread and almond-meal.

The FOM Viognier is powerful yet elegant, silky and complete, with nothing out of place.

2021 Hunter Valley Chardonnay

Variety:     100% Chardonnay
Region:     Hunter Valley
Vine Age:  20+ years old

Tasting Notes

Colour is fine straw green with flecks of pastel lemon-yellow.

This Chardonnay shows aromatic hints of golden pineapple and banana over the finer perfumes of nectarine and peach. Wild-ferment esters deliver elegant scents of oyster-shell, flint, and mineral. Subtle French oak adds to the mix with spicy hints of brioche and vanilla. The palate flavours combine juicy nectarine and tangy peach, yellow melon and fig fruits with a yoghurt-like creaminess onto a long soft finish.
This wine is already great drinking.

2021 Hunter Valley Semillon

Variety:     100% Semillon
Region:     Pokolbin, Hunter Valley
Vine Age:  Planted in 1969

Vineyard : Keith Tulloch Hermitage Road 

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.

2021 PERDIEM Sitio Semillon

2021 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.
