New Releases

The 2012 chardonnay has sold out.


The 2010 Pinot is a return to the style of the 2008. The even years seem to have average crop levels unlike the 2009 with a small crop resulting in the blockbuster style.
The 2010 has elegance and finesse, but still with the rich fruit backbone. The ripe fruit is obvious on the nose and the palate along with that complexity and funkiness that comes from the wild yeast. 35% new French oak ties the fruit, the funkiness, and the fine tannins nicely together.
We recommend decanting this wine. 

The 2012 chardonnay is a worryingly addictive wine. If its possible this is the Tasmanian version of a cross between Meursault and Chablis. There is the usual ripe East Coast fruit, but with complexity rarely seen in Australian chardonnay. Firm natural acid underlying the fruit and subtle oak make for a textured and balanced wine leading into a beautiful finish.
