'The wine has a quiet dignity calming you until the game seems over, and you find a wall of minerally, textured power on the aftertaste.'
94 Points - James Halliday

  • Proprietor, Robert Hill-Smith and winemaker Louisa Rose, intrinsically linked with Eden Valley Riesling, had tasted and talked about Tasmanian Riesling on many occasions, over many years. Enthralled by the bracing steely backbone of these wines, reflecting and reminding them of the cold and wild climate of the Tasmanian Coast. Just 30kms north east of Hobart in the Coal River Valley they discovered this unique site. And the rest just happened.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The 2016 vintage was preceded by a dry winter and spring. Relatively calm, warm and dry conditions continued through to mid May, well after harvest was complete. These conditions were perfect for setting and ripening flavourful grapes that have made a classic wine.

    TASTING NOTES

    2016 is the fourth vintage of this wine. It is defined by a long taut spine of slaty acidity, but balanced by textured complexity, flavours of a slightly wild cottage garden - feijoa, camomile, lavender, jasmine and grapefruit with aromas of tea rose, cumquat and sea spray. It’s hard to see past the perfect food match of freshly shucked Tasmanian oysters, although fried haloumi or fish and chips with tartar sauce are pretty good matches too! For something a little different try with a salad of ancient grains, salt bush and pomegranate.

    'The wine has a quiet dignity calming you until the game seems over, and you find a wall of minerally, textured power on the aftertaste. Retasting (with the wisdom of hindsight) you can see the signs of the nature of the wine, but the relentless grip on the finish (grip in a positive sense) makes you bend at the knee.
