Editors notes

This is a unique property that has seen consistent quality derive from the very soils that lay upon the banks, slopes, and flats of today. Whether this be in the quality of the livestock born from the lands, the quality of the pastures that fed the valley or to the now intense juices which flow from the grapes planted within the unique terroir; all contribute to exemplifying the pure expression of Tasmanian Pinot Noir, an expression one can now taste 200 years since the land was first cultivated.

This family owned winery produces exceptional cool climate fruit which create these outstanding wines. Every berry gets treated with the utmost care. 100% Estate grown and bottled.

Beautifully aromatic with vibrant red fruits and earthy notes. The palate is soft and delicate with red cherry and strawberry notes. Gentle tannins and balance acid work to give the wine an excellent structure. Food friendly and read for immediate enjoyment.

Critic Scores & reviews

  • Jeni Port - Wine Pilot

    "There is a strong sense of place here, of the Coal River Valley and a maritime-influenced cool climate where Pinot Noir thrives. Brilliant red-cerise hues. Vibrant red fruits to the fore in cherry, plum and cranberry aromas with vanilla and spice. A subtle, almost understated Pinot, gentle and unforced, but still waters . . . Builds slowly, gently on the palate, quite seamless, with a touch of aromatic herbals and earth, undergrowth that embellish together with a light dusting of woodsy spice against the red fruits. Tannins are fine, acidity tempts the tastebuds. Sinewy and succulent, finishing on a high, bright, clean Pinot note."

    "This wine comes from [redacted], Independent and stubborn apparently the discerning features. It is largely red fruited with pomegranate seed, redcurrants, and Morello cherries. A Szechwan pepper spice with tobacco leaf, rooibos tea and bayleaf. Bright and crunchy, it’s animated and youthful with tannins that are supple and silky. Medium weighted, this wine is in its prime and will cellar for 2-3 years. Best served with woodfire pizza and good friends."

Australia

Australia's wine industry is a thriving part of the country's economy, contributing significantly to employment, production, export, and tourism. In fact, the industry is the fourth-largest wine exporter in the world, shipping out 760 million liters of wine to countries including France, Italy, Spain, and the UK. One of the key factors contributing to Australia's success as a "New World" wine producer is the formal export and marketing of its wines through Wine Australia.

Australia's wine regions are scattered across the south and southeast, with almost every state boasting its own vineyards. Victoria, for example, is home to an impressive 21 wine regions. Some of the most famous wine regions in Australia include Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley, and local regions to New South Wales such as Cowra, Southern Highlands, and Mudgee.

Australian winemakers are known for producing a diverse range of grape varieties, with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir being among the most popular. They tend to focus on producing wines that are ripe, fruit-forward, and easy to drink, using modern winemaking techniques and equipment such as stainless steel tanks and temperature-controlled fermentation.

With its bold, fruit-driven flavors and reputation for quality and diversity, Australian wine has become a popular choice for wine lovers around the world. And with such a broad range of wine regions and grape varieties, there's something for every palate to enjoy.

Tasmania

Apart from being the most southerly wine region in Australia, Tasmania has among the coolest growing subregions with the potential to make distinctly different wines than in the rest of the country.

Most well known for cool-climate varietals like Pinot noir and Chardonnay (thus sparkling too), Sauvignon Blanc smaller plantings of Riesling, Cabernet and Pinot Gris (more commonly Pinot labelled Pinot Grigio)

Historically, Tasmania can lay claim to being the founder of both the Victorian and South Australian wine industries as William Henty sailed from Launceston to Portland (in Victoria) in 1834 and planted grape cuttings there. Though not conclusively proven, it's believed that John Hack planted vines in South Australia in 1837, closely followed in 1838 by John Reynell.

Warmer vintages (possibly attributable to global warming) has had positive effects on region's industry, allowing grapes in recent vintages to achieve full phenolic ripeness, making for vibrant wines that have been widely accepted as world class.

Coal River

The Coal River Valley wine region lies in the south of Tasmania, an easy 15 minutes drive outside of Hobart. It's the apple isle's fastest growing wine region, with almost a fifth of all Tasmanian wines grown there. The region is known for producing superior wines grown over some of the most fertile soil around.

The elements of rainfall, sunshine hours, number of rain days, temperature and overall humidity coalesce and culminate in cool climate conditions ideally suited to growing particular varietals. Predominantly in the reds, the region, as with much of Tasmania has an affinity for making top Pinot Noir however Cabernet, Merlot and some superb Shiraz have been known to emerge from the Coal River Valley too. In the whites, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc lead the charge with lesser amounts of Gewurztraminer grown there too. The dense, Pinot Noirs produced in the Coal River Valley region typically have more weight than their New Zealand counterparts with distinct savory notes not unlike the great red Burgundies. They've enamored many a visitor and will continue to do so as premium winemakers flock to the region.
