One of our favourite Tassie Pinots. This is one to grab.
Sensational Tassie Pinot from an excellent year.
This is a blend of several blocks from Ghost Rock’s Port Sorell vineyards in Tasmania’s north west. This is Tasmania’s coolest wine growing region producing pinot noirs of elegance and persistence.
Fruit was picked based on clonal ripeness and majority destemmed prior to a 7-14 day cold soak. Fermentation was a combination of cultured and wild yeast, with maturation taking place over 11 months in first-grade French oak, 30% new.
Elegant red and black cherry with subtle tannins and well integrated oak. this is great drinking now or will cellar well.

Quite simply one of the finest examples of Australian Pinot Noir we have come across. The dry grown grapes lay within the Piccadilly Valley region of the Adelaide Hills below the top of Mount Lofty. Resulting in the perfect cool climate environment for Pinot Noir to thrive. Add to this the mastery of Adelaide Hills pioneering head winemaker Stephen George and we are left with what legendary Australian wine writer James Halliday refers to as “the one Grand Cru of the state”.
This is the 3rd release of the prize winning Brockenchack Eden Valley Pinot Noir. Grown at the highest point of the vineyard (480M), this is an elegant Pinot from the cooler climate of the Eden Valley
Classic, smooth, yet intense Barossa shiraz. Very bright black and red fruits along with dark chocolate and plums on what is a lush and inviting nose. There’s richness on the palate, depth of flavour and spice too.
Another remarkable bargain made by former maker of Grange and 2 time Jimmy Watson Winner Mike Farmilo.
