Grown on a steep dolerite gravel hillside at 200m elevation overlooking the picturesque Ouse Valley on the Rotherwood property in central Tasmania, this cold to ultra-cold climate vineyard overlooks the mountains of the South West wilderness. It produced full-bodied wines of great palate length, with fruit from this vineyard used in some of Australia’s best chardonnay, pinot noir and sparkling wines.
WINEMAKER – ALAIN ROUSSEAU
Bright, clear crimson; a lively mix of fragrant red fruits and bramble on the bouquet; the palate has real elegance, with very good length and finish – James Halliday, Wine Companion 2016
Highly Recommended. Wines of great quality, style and character; worthy of a place in any cellar – James Halliday Wine Companion 2016
