Expert Reviews

Based on the '06 vintage, this spent an astonishing 9 years on lees. The bouquet and palate sing with all the joy of bready, nutty complexity and waves of mouthfilling texture. For all this jubilation, it upholds its pinot-led substance and its acid line and lemon and apple fruit.Rating 95 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2016

Viticulture

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.

Winemaking

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.
