The highly acclaimed Frogmore Creek wines are from the genuine cool-climateof southern Tasmania, where our sustainably grown grapes benefit from a long growing season. These slowly-ripened grapes develop pure fruit flavours, fresh natural acidity and are perfect for making seriously good wine.

Winery Tasting Notes


At release in June 2011 this wine had lifted aromas of dark cherries and fresh roasted coffee.


The palate is rich and lengthened with a silky tannin structure.

Food Matching

Great with sage and rabbit ravioli.

Vintage Condition

The 2008 vintage broke yield records across the state, partly due to the expanse of maturing vineyards and somewhat owing to the sustained stretch of perfect weather during the growing season. The long running drought continued, though clever irrigation following the infrequent rains permitted viticulturists to optimise their crop levels.

The dry and extended vintage period diminished any grapevine diseases and allowed the grapes to slowly ripen without stress. Harvest for grapes destined for sparkling wine began in the second week of March, one to two weeks earlier than average, though the vintage finished well into May for the late ripening varieties such as cabernet sauvignon and shiraz. Pinot Noir was generally hand-picked in first two weeks of April.

Whites from the 2008 Tasmanian vintage are fresh with great mineral acid structure, while the reds are showing elegant fruit and refined tannins.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Frogmore Creek is a Pacific Rim joint venture, the owners being Tony Scherer of Tasmania and Jack Kidwiler of California. The business has grown very substantially by first establishing its own organically managed vineyard, and thereafter by a series of acquisitions. First was the purchase of the Hood/Wellington Wines business previously owned by Andrew Hood; next was the purchase of the large Roslyn Vineyard near Campania; and finally (in October 2010) the acquisition of Meadowbank Estate, where the cellar door is now located.

In 1991 Alain and his wife moved to Tasmania, joining the local wine industry at its infancy. For a decade he worked with Domaine A and Moorilla Estate, gaining many accolades for his Tasmanian wines.

After four year sojourn at Sirromet winery in Southern Queensland, Alain returned to Tasmania in 2004 to work with Frogmore Creek, developing and refining their wine styles.
