Keith Tulloch Field of Mars Block 2A Hunter Valley Semillon

Keith Tulloch’s vineyard forms a grand cru strip of the Hunter Valley, continuing the fine white sand that defines the great neighbouring vineyards of Braemore and HVD. From a single block on the edge of the creek, with soils so fine he compares them with pulverised talc, this wine articulates the epitome of this great site. It’s desperately pure and fresh more than a year after harvest, with breathtaking fragrance of lemon blossom, kaffir lime and granny smith apple. The palate is backward and primary, a vector of pure lemon of relentless freshness and seamless line. Profound chalk mineral texture speaks of the personality of its soils. With brilliant energy and linear focus, this will be an exceedingly long lived semillon and one of the highlights of the vintage. Best price direct.
