David and I love what we do. From pruning in the frigid Tasmanian winters, putting nets on, wire lifting and walking the vineyard looking at the fruit, to making our wine-making decisions based on gut feel once the fruit has arrived, tending patiently to topping, barrel selection and blending - we are a part of every step of the fruit and wines to your glass. Our approach is to let the fruit express itself like we would one of our beautiful children, and keep it inline if it gets too crazy. We utilise natural yeast from the vineyards and use minimal intervention in wine-making to not lose character that is already there. Fruit is precious and so too is its expression.
Beautiful Isle White Delicious 2016 | $24.00
This wine changes every year with what we have available, varieties and volumes which are small and need a home. Every year I am amazed at how different and textural the wines are and how I love that they are different every time. The main base is Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and MÜLLER THÜRGAU with some Muscat, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay added at times if it doesn't fit the parent blend!
Beautiful Isle Red Delicious 2016 | $25.00
Red Delicious is just that. Red. And Delicious. The base for this wine is Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir, with varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc added if they fall out of the estate wines. It is the perfect pizza wine, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday wine. The wine you don't need to think about because its just red, and delicious.
Beautiful Isle Pink Lady 2016 | $24.00
Rosè is perfect for an Australian summer. Our Pink Lady is a saigneè of Pinot Noir where we remove 12% of the Pinot Noir juice to concentrate the main ferment yielding lightly coloured juice which we then treat like a white wine. Pink Lady is dry, textural and lingering, with delicious red fruits.
Beautiful Isle Pinot Noir 2016 | $28.00
A luscious fruit driven style of wines which showcases Pinot Noir flavours such as cherries and spice. We are lucky to source fruit from the Tamar Valley which ripens beautifully every year and has hallmark characters of Pinot Noir including the supple silky tannins. This wines is for drinking.
Beautiful Isle Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 | $26.00
A rarity in a cool climate like Tassie, but when Cabernet finds a warm pocket coupled with some vine age you get delicious European inspired wines. Our Cabernet has great depth of flavour from slow growing seasons and small concentrated berries. Fruit is picked ripe so tannin structure is fine and tight. If you like your wines big, then this is your style at a young age, however, elegance awaits in time.
