We’re very pleased to announce the arrival of the following new vintage wines:
2017 Estate Pinot Noir – Late last year, this wine was awarded the Trophy for “Best Tasmanian Wine” and also the Trophy for “Best Tasmanian Red Wine” at the 2018 Royal Hobart Wine Show! To back up this dual Trophy success, this wine has also received gold medals both in Australia (2018 Royal Hobart Wine Show and 2019 Sydney International Wine Competition) and overseas (2019 Berliner Wein Trophy Competition, 2019 China “Best Value” Wine & Spirits Awards and 2018 San Francisco International Wine Competition). This cool climate Pinot Noir has a little more palate weight than the 2016 version (reflective of the warm vintage), and has a complex cherry and spice nose. The palate has spicy dark cherries and plums, as well as hints of dark earth and minerals, supported by excellent fine grained tannins. This wine may be enjoyed now or confidently cellared – a great food match would be game dishes. More details of this wine (including other accolades) can be found here.
2018 Pinot Grigio – Pinot Grigio wines are made from the Pinot Gris grape. The reason they are called “Pinot Grigio” is a reference to the style in which the wine is made – usually crisp, fresh and delicious, designed to be chilled and enjoyed young. Our premium cool climate Pinot Grigio reveals a complex nose of apples, pears and mixed spices. The palate is dry and crisp, showcasing a combination of spiced pear and apple flavours. This wine may be enjoyed now or cellared for a few years, when it will gain increased palate richness. Food matches would include spicy Indian and Thai foods, especially those with a touch of sweetness – or even with simple fish and chips! More details of this wine can be found here.
2018 Pinot Rosé – Made from 100% Pinot Noir, this easy drinking style of wine shows enticing flavours of red currants, cranberries and strawberries on the nose and finishes crisp and dry. Best served chilled, it is ideal for informal entertaining and would suit a wide range of foods – such as barbequed Tasmanian seafood. More details of this wine can be found here.
