Red Blends and Other Varieties

Customer requests for red wine other than Pinot plus our own curiosity led us down the alternative to Pinot Noir road some years ago.  We’ve trialled in small plots a number of varieties and have fashioned a Bordeaux blend of a mix of these; Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet and we call this blend Chicane.  Recently we’ve planted a small plot of Syrah as we personally enjoy Rhone style wines.  Steve travelled to Austria and was inspired to plant a few rows of Blaufrankisch. It is exciting to show the world what else Tasmania is capable of.  Whilst Pinot Noir is our focus these other reds are equal in standing and quality and an opportunity to enjoy something diverse.

 

Our 100% Tasmanian grown and made 2021 Syrah biodynamic is an ode to the wines of the Northern Rhone Valley.

A cool-climate Syrah, that trades brashness for elegance because of its bounty of naturally fine tannins. A lovely bouquet that has notes of violets, lilacs, blackcurrants and mulberry set over a backdrop of spicy oak and cedar as well as tobacco, these balance the wine's pretty first impressions. The palate is voluptuous and savoury without withholding flavour, texture or satisfaction given its cool-climate origin.
