The Wine Front – Plum and dark cherry, rose oil, sap, spice and a sort of boot polish reduction. Medium bodied, slight hardness but also powerful and flavoursome, bursting through the mouth with perfume, red and black cherry, some sap and dried herb, and a pretty long finish with firm acidity and a lick of tannin. Bold but good.
James Halliday – Powerful, complex and long in the mouth, red and black cherries and wild raspberries; exemplary tannin and oak management.
About This Wine
A bold and powerful Pinot Noir, made in the Bream Creek style. There are lovely and intense notes of black and red cherries, plus a hint of wild raspberry, on the nose. The palate is smooth and deep, rich with dark plums, black cherries and blueberry. Finishing with balanced fine tannins, and featuring excellent balance and length, this wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for 7-10 years with confidence.
The Tasmanian wine region is a cool climate region, the most southerly of all wine regions in Australia. Due to the lower temperatures, the area grows primarily Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, with smaller plantings of Riesling, Pinot Gris and Cabernet Sauvignon.
“Having been to many wine tastings over the years, I can definitely say from a personal standpoint that Tasmanian Chardonnay and Pinot noir are always ones I look forward to trying if they are on the menu. They are almost always high calibre wines that can easily compete against what the rest of the world has to offer in these varietals.” Jason C. – World Wine.
While Tasmania makes great still wines, the exceptional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir also make for excellent sparkling wines.
More recent vintages since 2005 have been positively impacted by the effects of global warming. With slightly higher temperatures the grapes are ensured to ripen fully and produce more vibrant wine.
