Tasting Notes

Pale straw in colour with green edges, the nose shows orange rind, musk and ginger aromatics. The palate has volume and generosity yet finishes tight, sapid and long, framed by typical Tasmanian talcy acidity and positive phenolics. - Sam Connew

Winery Note:

The first case of wine that I ever bought was from Tasmania; a dozen bottles of Tamar Ridge Riesling. And my first vintage was in Oregon, where I, like so many other winemakers, became captivated by Pinot Noir. So it seems only fitting that after an intervening period of over fifteen years I end up in Tasmania making Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnay. In the interim period, after vintages throughout Australia and in Italy, Spain and in Oregon, I spent ten years as the Senior Winemaker at McLaren Vale's Wirra Wirra Vineyards, followed by a couple of years at Tower Estate in the Hunter Valley. My current position is working for the Australian Wine Research Institute. None of this was really on the radar after finishing a law and arts degree in Christchurch, New Zealand which I subsidised with part time work at a wonderful wine bar in the Arts Centre. It was here that I discovered wine and food, an epiphany fuelled by overseas travel and then confirmed with further study in winemaking and viticulture at Lincoln University. I'm passionate about the Australian wine industry as well as wine, and am actively involved as a wine show judge, and have recently been appointed Deputy Chair of the Sydney Royal Wine Show. I also sit on the board of the Australian Society of Viticulture and Oenology.
