Vintage Brut

Expressing the multiplicity of lutruwita Tasmania’s terroir, the Vintage Brut is blended from small parcels of fruit from vineyards, tended by sustainability-minded growers, across the island. These wines express the complex identity of each declared vintage. A snapshot of Tasmania lutruwita, if you will.

Made to retain their freshness, these wines spend a minimum of six years on yeast lees with further aging under cork. Each release is limited to 2500 individually numbered bottles (plus magnums).

2014 Vintage Brut

Blanc de Blanc

Literally, a white wine made from a white grape variety or varieties. The singular is quite deliberate. These wines celebrate Chardonnay.

D2 2014 Blanc de Blanc

Traditional method: Chardonnay.
Single vineyard: W Tamar Valley.

900 bottles produced. Gold medal, 96 points Huon Hooke, The Real Review
Second disgorgement (D2): Almost eight years on yeast lees.
Tasting note: Palest green-gold in hue. Clean and fresh like an alpine meadow with integrated aromas of toasted almonds, lime blossom, lemon curd, pretty, white florals, crunchy green apples and wet stones. Delicate, with loads of finesse the palate is long, and satisfying with a dry, savoury, almost saline finish.

Rosés

There are many ways to make pink rosé wines and thus, numerous styles. We choose to present two takes on the pink theme: one, a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and the second a delicate pure Pinot Noir.

2016 Brut Rosé

2016 Brut Rosé

Our first multi-regional (Coal Rivier Valley, Pipers River, 3.5% six-year old reserve wines in primary blend) and Chardonnay dominant rosé (69% Chardonnay, 31% Pinot Noir).

450 bottles produced. New release, unreviewed.
With almost eight years on yeast-lees, expect to see more bakery and hazelnut aromas and flavours as the wine ages.
Tasting note: Pale rosy, salmon in hue with delicate bubbles and scents of cranberries, freshly crushed, ripe raspberries, creme anglaise and almond croissants. Those red fruits show up on the palate too with a hint of crunchy red-apple and fizzy-strawberry sherbert over juicy white stone fruit and a lovely creamy texture on the mid-palate, giving way to a characteristically long, lingering mineral, almost savoury finish.
