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 41 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.
Now THIS is a Hunter Valley Semillon!! or 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.
Ideal with Antipasto, fresh oysters and prawns.
