Stefano Lubiana has a reputation for great Pinot - and it's easy to see why. Coming off his family-owned, biodynamic vineyard on the Derwent River, this wine is a wonderful expression of Tasmanian Pinot. An enticingly complex and savoury nose of gamey, earthy notes highlighted with classic cherry and red fruit characters. The palate delivers everything the nose promises with big, bold flavours of bright fruit over a dark, meaty, forest floor core - and a finish that goes on forever! A big, powerful Pinot - not for the faint-hearted!!
Born in Melbourne, brought up in the Riverland then settling in Tasmania, Steve Lubiana's life has always been surrounded by vines or wines. With over 20 years of winemaking in Granton he has developed the enviable reputation as one of the most innovative and progressive winemakers in Tasmania.
There is an artistic wildness in his wines balanced with a sense of time and place. His driving professionalism with a fastidious attention to detail (bordering on OCD) is somewhat tempered by his devotion to biodynamic practices in the vineyard and winery.
As a fifth generation winemaker he makes some blisteringly good wines, always beautifully drinkable with balance and his signature savouriness.
"We are focused entirely upon producing small quantities of handcrafted wines from grape to glass in the island state's cool maritime climate.
We started our vineyard with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir back in 1991 and through the years have added Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot to name a few.
We have established a modern, well equipped, gravity fed winery. Our state-of-the-art onsite facilities enable us to ensure the highest quality is retained at each stage of the process, from grape sorting to bottling and packaging".
