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 this range is sourced from the Lower Derwent Valley and Coal River Valleys in Tasmania. We take advantage of the diverse viticultural conditions and select only the most premium parcels from each region.

Winery Tasting Notes


Very pale green in colour.


This wine displays fragrant musk and floral aromas with undertones of lime zest.


The palate is initially delicate but soon gives way to luscious citrus-lime with crisp, mineral acidity. This wine shows exemplary varietal expression and the unique terroir of the Coal River Valley and Derwent Valley vineyards.

Winemaking Note

The quality of the 2011 fruit was exceptional, a delight to work with. Harvest came later than average following a wet winter with a cooler than average spring and summer. Flavour concentration was high, as was natural acidity. Careful attention is always paid to the balance of natural acidity with sugars to exemplify the trademark citrus-lime characters of Tasmanian Riesling. This wine can be enjoyed now however it displays enormous potential for ageing, akin to the great Tasmanian Riesling vintages of 2002 and 2005.

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.
