QTY

This is a wine that elegantly balances the fruit, lees, ferment and oak character with its natural Tasmanian acidity. Our grapes are hand-picked for this single vineyard wine when flavours achieve ripeness and the acid is still taut. Elegant, oak derived aromas combine with lees to provide a maritime oak character. Apple, stone and tropical fruit show the complexity of harvesting of several occasions. Perfumed spices; anise and clove add beauty. The wine has the texture of silk and will benefit from matching with food when young.

Vintage Description
Technical Details

The level of integration and austerity that I think best shows the Tasmanian terroir is again shown in this wine. Taut acidity and tannins give the wine great minerality that's kept fresh via the lack of malo-lactic fermentation. The result is an expression of fruit and wild fermentation characters with a solid backbone. This wine will drink very well in its youth but will also soften and improve with maturation. Look for integrated oak and the chalky minerality balanced between fruit weight, acidity and roundness from battonage. Fruit was sourced from the Moorilla owned and operated St. Matthias vineyard which is north-east facing on the West Bank of the Tamar River. Picking was again organised around a desire to achieve a range of ripeness and flavour profiles in the finished wine.
