'Very pretty. Very seductive. Roses, sweet spice and raspberry the main things here, with perhaps a flicker of fresh mint. Light to medium bodied, supple and silky.'

Clarence House was built in 1830 at Clarence Plains, Mt Rumney, just north of Hobart in Southern Tasmania. The beautiful Georgian house built around 1830 remains and has been maintained in its original splendour surrounded by beautiful gardens, and in 1998 present owner David Kilpatrick began planting vines on an impressive and ideally positioned north-east sloping block opposite the house. Over 8ha of the total 12ha of plantings consists of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with the remainder including Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Tempranillo.
TASTING NOTESMedium garnet red colour. Lifted aromas of spicy red fruits with vibrancy depth and finesse with more of a Burgundian than new world feel. Seamless and vibrant with refreshing lift and just a hint of sappiness that keeps the wine fresh and very long. Very complete and long with beautiful balance.

'Here’s a nice wine. Comes from a vineyard in Cambridge, near Hobart, planted 1998. Made by Justin Bubb and Anna Pooley.
Very pretty. Very seductive. Roses, sweet spice and raspberry the main things here, with perhaps a flicker of fresh mint. Light to medium bodied, supple and silky, with fine grained emery board tannin, even acidity, and a little toasty oak adding a savoury dimension to an otherwise pure and fruit driven Pinot Noir. Length good. Drinking appeal high.'
