Taste of freedom…   

Without having the luxury (or limitation!) of a pre-ordained family history in wine, we relish the freedom and opportunity to cast our net far from the more established white wine regions closer to our home. Looking to embody the frontier spirit of Tasmania, deeply cool and remote, this wine came together on the edge of the world achieving a freshness and vibrancy that we rarely see at home…

Composition

A pure and tightly wound wine showing the muscle and intensity of the low yielding East Coast site, and the fragile acid line synonymous with fine Tasmanian Chardonnay. A shy and somewhat restrained nose exuding white flowers, peach, nectarine characters, and subtle hints of nougat and wood spice. On the palate, a bedrock of chalky minerality supports a core of intense stone fruit, framing its lingering acidity.

Consumption

Ideal serving temperature is 12°C, and we love this wine with our homemade Japanese inspired Salmon Carpaccio garnished with avocado, nori, enoki mushrooms, sesame and a perky yuzu, citrus peel and soy dressing. Drink up to 5 years for a more complex expression...
