Tasting Notes

Vintage Notes: Winter of 2009 broke Tasmania’s four year drought with welcome rains rehydrating our parched vineyard blocks. A great spring and early summer followed with balanced vine canopy growth and moderate bunch set. Dry, sunny and warm days followed. A late summer turned into autumn and our vineyard recorded 100 days straight with a daily maximum above 17 degrees Celcius. Harvest of sparkling fruit began on March 15 and vintage finished with picking of Bordeaux varietals in early May. The long ripening period resulted in softer acids in our whites and rich, ripe tannins in our Pinot.

Vinification: All bunch pressed, free run juice selected only.

Maturation: Tiraged in bottle in October 2010. Disgorging 2016.

Aroma: Aged complexity with nutty and toasted aromas

Palate: Elegant and full of flavour.

Grapes/Blend: 88% Pinot Noir, 12% Chardonnay

pH: 2.9
