About This Wine
This wine spent ten months in 100% French oak - 30% new with the remainder in seasoned French oak barriques and puncheons. Part of the wine (53%) remained on lees for its entirety in oak. This is a very different proposition, already with an intricate display of flavours ranging through dark berry, spice, bramble and (controlled) oak, likewise all promising much for the future. A true vin de garde style years a conservative minimum.
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.
