Rare parcel of top rank mature Hunter Semillon, drinking beautifully now but many years left.

Now THIS is a Hunter Valley Semillon!! For a wine that's so dry and with such low alcohol, this is incredibly rich. Classically poised with lemon blossom aromas, lime juice, sweet lemon purity and hints of spice, this wine sparkles with a quartzy / minerally brightness. These citrus oil intensity signatures burst out with vividness and clarity, giving an intense zest and mouthwatering acidity on the finish and an amazing total palate length.

This is the “purest” example of our semillon vineyard, from a small 0.25ha block planted in the lightest sandy drifts of soil, surrounded by the meandering gravelly streambeds on three sides. This is an elite, 51 year old, dry farmed, single vineyard, called Field of Mars, on Hermitage Road. Hand crafted by the talented Mr Tulloch. Only 120 dozen produced and individually numbered on each bottle.

“I cannot remember being more impressed with an initial release of wines than those”, said James Halliday when he first tasted Keith Tulloch’s wines.

These thoughtful, hand-crafted wines hail from the Hunter Valley with a nod in part to the great Rhône Valley wines of Hermitage and Cote Rôtie. For those who may have tasted any legendary Hunter Shiraz wines of the 40s, 50s and 60s, tasting many of the modern Hunter wines can be a depressing experience but Keith Tulloch is very different, adding to that great legacy with a series of wines that uniquely capture the exotic spice and hedonistic pleasure of dense and rich Shiraz fruit. These are sensuous, subtle wines with the velvety texture of fine burgundy.

Ideal with Antipasto, fresh oysters and prawns.
