    • Some sort of chatter explain me the folio and what I offer. :)
    • Grey Sands Vineyard Tamar Valley: Winemaker: Fran Austinn Viticulture: Bob & Rita Richter Gravelly sandy loam over hardpan mottled clay. Grey Sands Pinot Gris 2008 review Nick Stock The Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2010. "Certainly a category leader, this little Tasmanian vineyard is making a big Impression with this stunning pinot gris. With deeper colour and convincing complexity on the nose, this delivers plenty of ripe fruit and richness, a steely edge as well there’s honeyed melon and ginger, almost viognier like. The palate has a smooth, creamy middle palate texture, with flavours of poached pear and apple tarte tatin, some grilled nuts too. Very long spiced custard flavour at the finish and some fresh shortcrust pastry. Truly complex and engaging wine works a charm!" Score:96. The only entry in the ‘Best of the Best’ Pinot Gris & Pinot Grigio Category". Wine Year L.U.C. Glen Grey Merlot 2004 19.90 Pinot Gris 2008 39.90 Romaneque Red 2005 39.90 Pinot Noir 2007 49.90 The most powerful in folio. Merlot 2005 39.90 Classic Roast Lamb wine! Kelvedon Vineyard East Coast: Viticulturalist: Jack Cotton Winemaker: Julian Alcorso. Brown soil over dolerite. East Coast Tasmiania is our most consistent region, producing luscious, forward and deeply perfumed Pinot Noir. The bulk of this fruit is contracted to Hardies for the Bay of Fires and Arras wines. Every year Jack produces a few hundred cases of 100% estate fruit just to show off. To Quote James Halliday: "Pinots averaging 95+ its a superstar in the making" Wine Year L.U.C. Pinot Noir 2008 39.90 Sauvignon Blanc 2009 26.90 Perect with a beetroot salad
    • Winstead Vineyard Bagdad: Viticulturalist: Neil Snare Winemaker: Neil Snare. Carboniferous Shales. "The good news about Winstead is the outstanding quality of its extremely generous and rich Pinot Noirs, rivalling those of Freycinet for the abundance of their fruit flavour without any sacrifice of varietal character. The bad news is that production is so limited, with only 0.8 ha of pinot noir and 0.4 ha riesling being tended by fly fishing devotee Neil Snare and wife Julieanne" James Halliday Neil Snare has really got his ducks in a row. Young vines and some declassified oldvine fruit combine to deliver one of the great value Pinot Noir wines of the moment. Raspberry and dark cherry fruits here with a warmth and roundness amid bright upbeat acidity and silky smooth texture. Reviewed by: Nick Stock 93 points Focusing on elegance, structure and perfume while he turns his back on the jammy Grenache styles so many producers are attempting to create. These are wines of great complexity and massive ageworthiness. These are must have wines. Wine Year L.U.C. Blanc de Noirs 2004 39.90 Aperitif Style Oysters Gewurtztraminer 2008 22.90 Asian Pork Riesling 2007 22.90 Instead Pinot Noir 2008 27.90 Pinot Noir Estate 2006 39.90 Pinot Noir Reserve 2005 54.00 The most comlex of wines!
    • Goaty Hill Tamar Valley: Viticulturalist: Markus Maislinger Winemaker: Fran Austinn Sandy loam over limestone An emerging superstar of the Tamar Valley, showing amazing consistency over the last 5 vintages in bottle and an enviable book of customers for their fruit. Now with fully mature vines, they’are now making a serious crack at the premium wine market. The Pinot and Riesling are consistent show and Trophy winners. Wine Year L.U.C. Sauvignon Blanc 2009 26.90 Riesling 2008 26.90 Multi Trophy winner Chardonnay 2008 29.90 No splinters here! Pinot Noir 2008 34.90 Elegant delicate & etheral Metcalfe Valley Macedon Ranges, Vic: Viticulturalist: Matt Pattison Winemaker: Matt Pattison Decomposing granetic over heavy clay Ok I know I specialise in Tasmanian wines, but surely an indulgence is allowed? I love cold climate, spicy, intense, food loving Shiraz. On this assesment this is one of the best quality Shiraz around. Using knowledge gained while working for Sergio Carlei at Green Vineyards, Matt has guided the Metcalfe Valley Vineyards and Chookshed through a biodynamic conversion. We are going to see a great vineyard, with already great wines, truly announce itself as a benchmark wine in an already crowded Australian Shiraz scene. Mr Halliday again: "A beautiful young wine; a mix of red and black fruit; perfect balance and texture. Trophy winner Macedon Ranges Wine Exhibition. Rating 94 Drink 2013" Wine Year L.U.C. Sauvignon 2008 22.90 Barrel Fermented: whacky! Shiraz 2006 27.90
    • Delamere Pipers River Winemaker/ Viticuluturalist: Shane Holloway Deep red Ferrosol New owner and winemaker Shane Holloway reflects, One of the greatest feelings as a young winemaker is to have the opportunity to be so close and connected to the winemaking process from the vineyard to the bottle. Delamere is one of the original vineyards planted in the Pipers Brook region. The fertile soils on the property had previously lent themselves to the successful establishment of a wonderfully diverse fruit orchard and market garden. It was the pioneering vision of Richard and Dallas Richardson that in 1981 saw the more elevated areas of the property planted out to the classic cool climate cultivars of pinot noir and chardonnay. Over the last 25 years Delamere has forged a reputation as one of T asmania’s premium wine producers of both table and sparkling wines. Wine Year L.U.C. Blanc de Blancs 2005 35.90 Yeasty (croissants & fruit) Sparkling Rose NV 25.90" Christmas day (all day!) Rose 2008 18.90 Chardonnay 2008 25.90 almost sold out Pinot Noir 2008 39.90 for the cellar amazing!
    • Want to know more about Tasmanian Wine or Wine in General? "A Taste of Tasmania" • A selection of 5 wines (bubbles to big red) • Full notes • Entertaining, informative and yummy! • 35 per head (redeemable on every case purchase) • Catering available (from cocktail to full 5 courses) • Your place/ office/ mates house or we can organise a venue You like cheese? Here is an example below of a night I ran recently: • 6 wines • 6 handmade french Cheeses • A mix of T assie and French wine • 85 per head Will Studd Normandy Camembert & Manoir du Kinkiz: Cidre de Cornouailles A tradional cidre that shows a very "rustic" character. The producers do not use modern techniquies to "protect" the juice which allows for a bevvy of wild yeasts to run rampant during the fermentation proccess. This style of cidre production is the stuff of nightmares for modern industrial cideries. There is a massive variation from one batch to the next, something the french applaud as "terrior" with its etheral combination of soil, climate and vintage variation. Rouzaire Calendar Billat Savarin Winstead Blanc de Noirs 2004 A "white of blacks" sparkling which is 100% Pinot Noir from the bitterly cold vintage in 2004. A bad year for Red wine but perfect for Bubbles as it yielded grapes with low sugar levels and high acid levels. This low sugar/ high acid combination is what make’s a great sparking wine and a perfect cleanser when paired with a cheese as rich as this one. Jacquin Traditional Berry Cendre Goaty Hill Pinot Noir 2008 I’ll let James Halliday do the talking on this one: "Brilliant clarity to the colour; spice and red fruit aromas, then a palate quivering with life and intensity; a long, fine finish with gossamer tannins." 94 points, drink to 2015
