Winery Tasting Notes

Subtle lime and floral aromas with lively citrus and mineral flavours. Juicy cool-climate acid adds complexity and length.

Food Matching

Went well with tuna sashimi.

2010 Vintage Condition

Winter of 2009 broke Southern Tasmania’s 4-year drought, with welcome rains re-hydrating our parched vineyard blocks. A great Spring and early summer followed with balanced vine canopy growth and moderate bunch set. Dry, sunny and warm days followed late Summer into Autumn and our vineyard recorded 100 days straight with a daily maximum above 17??C. Harvest of sparkling fruit began on March 15 and vintage finished with the picking of Bordeaux varietals in early May. The long ripening period resulted in softer acids in our whites and rich, ripe tannins in our pinot.

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.

Alain Rousseau - Senior Winemaker

Alain Rousseau hails from an old vigneron family in Vallet of the Loire Valley region of France. He was formally trained at the prestigious Dijon University of Burgundy, before returning to the Loire to work at Château du Cléray.

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.
