Awards and Reviews

96 points -  Ned Goodwin  (Halliday Wine Companion)

A pinot built around twine of whole-cluster clove and cardamom-clad tannin racing along a verdant undercarriage of cool-climate acidity and biodynamic energy.  Spikey and refreshing. Shins and elbows, but boy will this grow. Just give it time! This is the Pinot for those who appreciate texture, while dwelling on intrigue. Lots of stuffing poise and immerse potential.

Wine Details 

We have spent the last 30 years working on identifying specialized sites on our Granton Estate for the development of an iconic Pinot Noir. This Single Block range has been selected for their specific terrior or soil type to truly express the uniqueness and individual personality of the Pinot Noir variety. 

Il Giardino translates to ‘the garden’ in Italian. This block was originally a market garden planted to brassicas when we first arrived in Tasmania in 1990. The heavy, silty black clay topsoil over clay base helps water retention in the block, resulting in vines that have more vigour and wines that have more structure with higher acid and tannin profiles.
