About This Wine
With a diverse range of concentrated berry flavours, It could only be Tasmanian; sweet vibrant berry fruits, floral and spice with game meats; distinctive of its cool maritime climate. The aroma profile is seamless and well Interwoven, sweet cranberry, elderberries, pepper berry and cherries all tantalize, whilst within its depth are the more complex spice and aromas which open in the glass to show its true gamey rich and savoury richness, whilst finishing with hints of toasted almond, all spice and chocolate truffles from maturation in fine French oak barriques.
The palate is finely stated, concentrated with depth and weight, dark fruit cake, sweet fleshy cranberries and cherries, the long delicate flavours explore your palate with excitement, only to display all the fine maritime hallmarks of cool climate Tasmanian Pinot Noir with its diversity of berry fruits, hints of marzipan and the secondary appeal of game meats, leather and liquorice, all elegantly packaged on the palate with subtle textural dryness from the long structured tannins providing just the right balance, whilst the continuation of berry fruits and spice linger beyond the finish.
Pinot Noir is so versatile it will match with a wide array of foods, its only limitation being your imagination and willingness to explore your own food match experience and style. It goes well with barbecued quail with blackcurrant jus, baked veal wrapped in prosciutto and topped with mozzarella cheese, fig-stuffed pigeon, braised rabbit with pancetta and tomatoes, Chinese style roast duck. The food options are endless and worthy to explore and enjoy.
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.
