The wine displays vivid colour and an aroma of exotic spices, forest floor, strawberries and black cherries. The palate is rich and spicy with balanced stalkyness and oak providing complexity and structure. Fine acidity confers length and a creamy succulent finish. - Winery Note
Peter Dawson and Tim James are winemakers who have always been driven by quality and innovation. The two friends met in Adelaide in 1976: Peter Dawson was a 21-year-old science student from Geelong whose first job in the wine sector was as a cellar hand with Thomas Hardy & Sons, working at their Mile End winery, where Tim James was the Production Winemaker. They struck up a remarkable friendship that has spanned three decades, working together for 20 years at Hardys before moving on to new horizons. With a collective winemaking experience of more than 70 years, their interest in wine is much more than purely professional, and it was inevitable that at some point down the track, the two would work in collaboration.
Our grapes are grown on the Meadowbank vineyard, approximately 60 kms northwest of Hobart. Its rugged topography is bounded by the fast flowing, pristine waters of the Derwent River.
