  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • The 2017 Pinot Noir is a blend from two mature vineyards in the Coal River Valley (88%) and the Tasman Peninsula (12%) from D2V6, MV6, and D2V5 clones. Hand harvested fruit was handled using a variety of  methods including cold soaking, wild fermentation and whole bunch inclusion with one small parcel being 100% whole bunch inclusion. This was carefully foot stomped at stages during the ferment. Other ferments were gently hand plunged twice per day. Post fermentation maceration of up to 4 weeks to build the required structure and complexity occurred before basket pressing. Maturation in large format french oak on lees for 16 months prior to blending and bottling.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • After working with Tasmanian fruit for nearly two decades, Glenn James with his wife, Jo Marsh, have released a range of truly unique wines from some of Tasmania’s most exciting vineyards. Glenn's role as Chief Winemaker for Winemaking Tasmania comes with some pretty good perks, not least of which is the ability to year-on-year, see which vineyards are producing the best fruit. This access has given Glenn and Jo the ability to pick and choose from the 'best of the best', and attack the Shy Susan project with a no-compromise approach. Select small parcels of fruit are crafted to reflect variety, vineyard and the stylistic approach forged from Glenn’s skill and experience.

    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    88% Coal River Valley, 12% Tasmanian Peninsula, hand-picked, various vinification techniques including cold soaking, wild fermentation with a whole bunch inclusion, foot-stomped, lengthy post-ferment maceration. The perfumed bouquet of fruit and forest floor leads into a most attractive palate with a cherry-all-sorts wave of flavours. Pity only 80 dozen made.

    CAMPBELL MATTINSON - THE WINE FRONT


    Silken pinot noir. Sweet fruit with an undergrowthy core. Not too heavy, not too light, quite pretty but with gravitas. Feels bunchy at first but then sweet fruit takes over. Feels simultaneously wild and squeaky clean. Stalky tannin. On its way to wonderland.

    JAMES SUCKLING


    Lots of ripe fruit with dried flowers and stems. Medium to full body. Firm and silky tannins.
