Field of Mars Chardonnay by Keith Tulloch

Field of Mars Chardonnay by Keith Tulloch

Intense and intensely focused proof of truly great Aussie Chardonnay. Australia is so good at doing this properly great wine. Everything is in balance. It smells leesy with a bright, freshly toasted almond nuttiness, ‘Premier Cru’… even ‘Grand Cru’ nose from well used oak married with slightly sweet natural tones. The continuity is superb as the nose follows through onto the palate. This is a really young wine that’s lemony, citrus, bright, and beautifully crafted. Still a baby today but it all comes together so well. Definitely one to lay down. It ‘pops’ of new wood on the back palate. As they’d say ‘back home’, this is a bloody brilliant and awesome wine… absolutely delicious! This Hunter Chardonnay puts many a fine Burgundy at double the cost to shame.
FOOD MATCH
Lemon sole cooked in butter with shrimps. Very rare steak, even steak tartare

New South Wales

The Hunter Region is the premium wine region of New South Wales and one of Australia’s most well-known, and historically important wine regions. Distinctive styles of Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz are the hallmark of this region. James Busby the man credited with bringing the vine to Australia was associated with the Hunter Valley through his brother-in-law William Kelman. Kelman is thought to be the first to plant vines in the Hunter. George Wyndham planted grapes in 1832. Penfolds bought the property in 1904 naming it Wyndham Estate. Dr Henry Lindeman purchased land around Raymond Terrace in the 1830s. So too did James King whose legacy passed onto Maurice O’Shea who came to the forefront of Hunter Valley winemaking in the 1920s. The area fell into depression for many years, but gradually made a comeback in the early 1960s. Today the region is booming. The climate is regarded as warm to hot. The main wine styles: White – Semillon (regarded as one Australia’s greatest and unique wines, with great aging potential), Chardonnay; Red – Shiraz.

Chardonnay

Australia’s most widely planted white grape variety. The heavily oaked styles of the earlier nineties are now being replaced with styles emphasising the regional fruit and greater complexity. The cooler climate regions producing styles of great elegance and finesse.
