It’s a very fine wine, and forgive me for saying it, has a distinct echo of Burgundy, albeit many thousands of miles south of that neck of the woods. Dried flowers, almost chamomile, a whiff of soil and spice, red fruits and almond. Medium bodied, deft and sure, with pitch-perfect acidity married to perfectly ripe red fruits, tannin is nutty and saturating, and the finish is cool and long, all that ‘mineral’ stuff, orange peel and perfume playing out to marvellous effect. It may, perhaps, be too subtle for some, but those who seek elegance and poise will be well rewarded. Drink: 2020-2037 (Jun18)

Established in 1985, the Cooinda Vale vineyard is ideally positioned facing northeast overlooking the Coal River in southern Tasmania. On the 43.5 Latitude line, the vineyard is planted on northeast facing slopes at 130m above sea level. This is a unique microclimatic location, being well protected from prevailing winds but still highly influenced by maritime conditions. The long growing season, which can extend into May, with high sunshine hours, predominately winter rainfall and the occasional frost and snow, combine to provide an excellent condition for cool climate grape varieties, such as Pinot Noir.
