We’re very pleased to announce the arrival of the following new vintage wines:
- 2012 vintage Cuvée Sparkling – with six years on lees, this is a richly flavoured wine with lemon and almond, yet finishing clean and crisp. It went down fantastically well with patrons at the recent Taste of Tasmania and is perfect with oysters.
- 2017 Riesling – drawing on fruit from our (now!) 45 year old “Old Vine” block, this wine a little drier than the 2016 version, with lovely citrus and green apple flavours. It has already been awarded 1 gold and 3 silver medals, as well as 95 points from James Halliday, 92 points from Huon Hooke and 4.5 stars from Winestate Magazine.
- 2017 Chardonnay – released on the 1 of January at the Taste of Tasmania, this is a richer Chardonnay that usual, reflective of a warmer 2017 vintage. Think citrus, grapefruit as well as stone fruit and spicy French oak. While drinking well now – it has already been awarded a double gold medal just last month at the San Francisco International Wine Competition, as well as another gold medal at the 2018 Asia Wine & Spirit Awards – we think this premium wine would also benefit from cellar time.
- 2017 Cabernet Merlot – a rare wine in the Pinot Noir dominated wine scene of Tasmania, this is our nod to the Bordeaux wines of France. Cassis/blackcurrant and dark plums, herbal hints too, with evident tannins and good acidity. It will evolve into something special with time in the cellar, although it pairs very well with rich meat dishes and strong cheeses now.
