The Bay of Fires wines were born of a desire to showcase the best possible cool climate varietal wines Tasmania can offer, combining fruit intensity, refinement and persistence of flavour. Fruit for our Pinot Gris is sourced from the Upper and lower Derwent Valley plus the Coal River Valley in Tasmania. Taking advantage of diverse viticultural conditions, we select the most premium parcels from each region with the 2011 vintage showing refined wines of incredible intensity.

Winery Tasting Notes


Pale straw with a green hue.


This wine has an enticing aroma of sweet pear and delicate spice, complemented by a lively palate featuring characters of orange and quince.


The generous texture of this wine comes from allowing certain parcels of fruit to undergo full wild yeast fermentation before being blended with the controlled ferments. The resultant wine is full and complex with a structured backbone of fresh acidity.

Winemaking Notes

As Pinot Gris increases in popularity with consumers we are also seeing notable advances in quality, particularly in Tasmania. Working with this variety in the cool climate style is both exciting and rewarding. The 2011 vintage followed a wet winter with a cooler than average spring and summer. Surprisingly early onset of flavour during the ripening period ensured great fruit concentration with balanced natural acidity. In 2011 we sourced from three vineyards and fermented in five separate batches. A challenging yet exceptional vintage for this wine.

Out of extraordinary challenges, come exceptional results.

It's no easy task growing vines in Tasmania – it requires lots of passion, hard work, commitment and knowledge. But from the vineyards nurtured with these four qualities comes truly remarkable fruit and the Bay of Fires range of wines.

Our vines enjoy a cool, maritime climate that provides steadier ripening conditions, however, with it come the challenges of lower sunlight levels and a greater variation in terroir – the very complexities that spur on our determination.

All the vines are painstakingly pruned and trellised in the single cordon vertical shoot (Guyot) technique to protect them against the elements that are as fickle as the winds that carry them.

Just like the sub-regions of our island state, every vineyard has a unique and distinctive character forged out of its soil, its climate and of course its careful management. So we believe it is our job then to bring together an entire team, all of whom ensure the varietal characteristics are revealed, preserved and celebrated in every wine we create for you.


Find balance and beauty will follow.

When so much has gone into growing excellent fruit, it then falls on the winemaking team to capture that quality by creating exceptional wines.

Across the entire team we share our ideas, our knowledge and our curiosity to bring out the best in every parcel of fruit. We balance acidity against sweetness to create delicate Rieslings. In our Chardonnay we seek a harmony of mouthfeel and fruit, and of course then there’s the Pinot Noir – a challenging grape to grow but one which amplifies its terroir beautifully and delivers a wine of superb complexity, structure and romance.

In balance with the qualities of each variety, we strive to echo the terroir, and the essence of Tasmania. It's winemaking 'on the edge', but in the face of such challenges the rewards speak for themselves.
