Winery Tasting Notes

An icily refreshing showcase of pristine, cool-climate fruit with incredible elegance and persistence. The flavours of Pinot Noir are supported by the intense structure of Chardonnay to produce a wine of incredible elegance and length. Aromatic notes of briney sea spray, camomile and delicate apple blossom are followed by earthy undertones of smokey sandalwood and fresh brioche. On the palate, the racy acidity and pithy phenolics give the wine an added dimension and texture and lead through to a pristine finish.

Winery Profile

heemskerk is an established, premium Tasmanian wine producer celebrating new world winemaking techniques and old-world influences that capture the integrity, purity and elegance of Tasmania's cool climate.

In the vast wilderness areas of Tasmania little has changed since Abel Tasman sighted the west coast in 1642, aboard his flagship the Heemskerk. Centuries later, this land would become the premier region in Australia for producing cool climate wines.

The original Heemskerk vineyard was developed by Graham Wiltshire in 1975 with partners Bill Fesq, a Sydney wine merchant and Colin Haselgrove from Reynella Wines. The trio recognised the potential of the Tasmanian wine industry early in the piece.

Since its inception in the seventies, Heemskerk has had a number of ownership changes. It was Tasmanian native, Anna Pooley, who became our winemaker between 2009 to 2012 and whose passion and vision for her island home saw the potential of Heemskerk realised and the return to its former glory.

Heemskerk continues to capture the integrity and purity of Tasmanian terroir. Our viticulturist Jamie Hewet works tirelessly to ensure we capture the best Tasmanian fruit and the winemaking team employs new world winemaking techniques with old-world influences to produce outstanding examples of the varieties that fare best in this region.
