Expert Reviews

Bright, clear magenta-red; cold-soaked for six days before transfer to open fermenters and matured for eight months in 30% new French oak. While not flamboyant, has purity and excellent varietal expression, with a haunting aftertaste.

Rating 93 - Drink by 2015 -James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (DEC/2011)

Winery Profile

Last Horizon is a culmination of Adrian’s passion for cool climate viticulture. Last Horizon comprises single vineyard wines from Tasmania, illustrating the unique micro climates of each region. The Tamar Valley wines are fruit driven and relatively approachable in their youth whilst the cooler climate o wines are tightly structured and elegant, built for long term cellaring.

VINEYARDS

Each Last Horizon wine is sourced from a single vineyard chosen for its individual character and regional suitability. The vines are primarily organically grown, low yielding and 15 – 20 years of age. “High maintenance” viticulture is vital in Tasmania – from vigilance during the growing season to hand pruning, picking and sorting.

WINEMAKING PHILOSOPHY

The Last Horizon white wines are made with the ambition of maximum fruit purity and length. Small batches are transported quickly and given a fast and precise vinification with cool fermentation and maturation on lees in stainless steel. The Pinot Noirs are treated almost the opposite – small open fermenters with minimal sulphur addition during fermentation and maturation before bottling without fining or filtration.
