About This Wine
92 POINTS - Huon Hooke The Real Review
"Very good depth of colour with a strong purple tint, the bouquet is all dark cherries and Chinese five spice, a hint of smoked meats, some balanced oak evident, the palate medium weighted and there are plenty of soft, fine tannins completing the picture. Slight alcohol heat on the aftertaste. Very attractive wine, and has a future if cellared a few years."
100% hand picked fruit from our Frogmore Creek Vineyards in Southern Tasmania. A bright red in colour, cedary oak and vibrant dark cherry and plum fruits dominate the aromas. The palate is rich and full; abundant meaty notes are supported by some delicate silky tannins and concentrated jammy fruits; beautifully balanced. Well structured and great potential to cellar for a long time.
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.
