The winery was founded upon the vision and spirit of our dedicated winemaking and viticultural team, who believed Tasmania would one day be the pre-eminent region in Australia to produce cool climate wines. To this end, we search for the individual ‘personalities’ in every variety and vineyard, to craft wines which are unique, alluring and distinctively Tasmanian but never compromise on consistency or quality. 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. 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.
Brilliant purple in colour, this wine displays sweet, ripe strawberry aromas, coupled with complex Chinese five spice and cinnamon nuances. The palate is elegant and supple, with remarkable power, intensity and length. Framed by ripe, moderate tannin the graceful, sweet strawberry fruit is complemented, yet not dominated, by spice. Overall, the wine has wonderful poise and balance.
