Pure delicate fruits, supported by subtle oak use and carried by a fine acid line. The lack of malic acid allows the round fullness of lactic acid to fill out the back palate.


Grown on a north -facing bank of the Derwent River this 22-year-old cool-climate vineyard is widely recognised for producing some of the best chardonnay fruit in Australia including supplying the famous Penfolds Yattarna 10 years in a row. The soils are permeable loams over limestone imparting intensity and aromatic delicacy to the fruit. Clones: I10V1, I10V5 and Penfolds.

Details

Winery Note:

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.
