A generous Pinot Noir from southern Tasmania's Derwent River. Classic cherry bouquet and elements of forrest floor, but the fruit is the real star here. Soft and easy drinking. - Chris L
Derwent Estate is a family owned and operated wine business situated just 20 minutes North of Hobart - the largest city in Tasmania. Located at 42 degrees south latitude this is genuine Cool climate Viticulture. Tasmania is rapidly gaining a reputation as Australias premier Pinot Noir, Riesling and Sparkling wine producing area.
When we say family operated - thats exactly what we mean, with 3 generations of family members currently involved in the business. Planted on the historic Mt Nassau property which has been in the current owners family since 1913, Derwent Estate Wines was part of the diversification program.
The property has seen a vast array of ventures over the last 100 years or so including Sheep, Cattle, Vegetable production, seed crops, poppies, quarrying and the production of lime. Viticulture is the next exciting phase in the history of Mt Nassau.
