What the Critics say
'There’s no doubt this chardonnay from the Huon Valley in Tasmania ‘sails’ close to the “underdone” flag. Flirting with danger comes with the territory when your aim is high.
It’s like a photograph taken in cool early light. The tips of everything are brightly but lightly exposed. It tastes of saline and white peach, lemon curd and sweet spice, crackles of woodsmoke and mineral firing through the finish. At once it’s sharp, taut, nervy and beautiful. Maybe you have to be of a certain mind, but personally I think this is stunning. Drink: 2019 -2026.' (Mar18)
This tiny vineyard is one of Australia’s most southerly located in the Huon valley in southern Tasmania. Paul and Gilli Lipscombe own the vineyard and make the wines and both have considerable vineyard and winemaking experience behind them. From working together in the Languedoc to New Zealand, Oregon and Margaret River they spent a lot of time researching and considering the best possible vineyard site with the aim to produce Australia’s best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay finally settling on this ideal north facing vineyard which is sheltered from the prevailing south-westerly winds.
