About This Wine
This remarkable wine is at once juicy and plush yet incredibly focused. Bright with loads of red cherry, floral notes, aromatic spices with great drive and length.

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.
The Wine Front – Certainly for the set that likes pinot with some grunt. Hearty, swarthy red of concentration, ripeness and depth. Rich scents of stewed berries and cherries, touch of kirsch, sniff of pepper, sweet spice dusted and a whiff of clove. The palate teeters towards dry reddish with clove oak, red currant, dried cranberry characters, some plushness and a corduroy textured finish. A pinot of gusto.
