Matured in large-format French oak for ten months, with a touch of new oak barrels too. Fruit from Tamar Valley, Coal River Valley and the Tasman Peninsula. The nose is waxy but really sensual. Framed by notes of white blossom and hints of chipped shell and a flintiness that reminds you of a chalkduster clap. Grapefruit, cashew, toast. The slew of Tasmanian winemakers making wines that are hauntingly reminiscent of fine Burgundy grows steadily on and Lowescroft, are leading the standard. Lowestoft homestead and their adjoining vineyard near Hobart – overlooks David Walsh’s Mona museum and Moorilla Winery and Lowestoft Bay on the Derwent River - prime real estate in terms of views, but also growing conditions. Due to the small size of the Lowestoft vineyard, they are progressively sourcing the best parcels of fruit from select growers spread across different subregions, including the Huon Valley, Derwent Valley, Coal River Valley and Tamar Valley.
