This wine is tightly crafted and combines power with elegance. The delicate aroma features citrus and melon fruits with soft oak nuances. The palate is pristine, fresh and vibrant, revealing ripe melon, white peach and grapefruit flavours subtly supported by spicy oak and creamy textures. The finish is crisp long and seamless.
Geoff and Susan Bull were early viticultural pioneers on the East Coast of Tasmania, establishing Freycinet Vineyard in 1979. It is situated adjacent to the picturesque Freycinet Peninsula, (latitude 42 degrees), which is named in honour of the French explorer Louis de Freycinet, who chartered the region in 1802. The 15 hectare vineyard is proudly family owned and the wines are 100% grown, produced and bottled on our estate. The site is a warm sheltered one within the truly cool Tasmanian climate. The vineyards are meticulously hand tended to grow moderate yields of fully ripe healthy fruit. The rustic winery houses 'state of the art' equipment to ensure wine quality is not lost. The wines are produced with great care, dedication and passion - they are a delicious liquid expression of our unique place on earth, the varieties and the season.

Estate-grown, fermented and matured in French oak. A complex array of white peach, melon and grapefruit, and a consistent undertow of Tasmanian acidity. Needs time.
