Waterton Hall

Waterton Hall is situated on the west bank of the Tamar River at Rowella, in Tasmania. Originally built in the 1850s as a simple blue stone farmhouse, it was extensively renovated in 1910 by the neo-gothic architect Alexander North, under instruction from the owner at that time, Charles Brady. Between 1949 and 1996 it was owned by the Catholic Church and operated variously as a girl's school, boy's home and retreat. In 1961 a second building was opened as a local school. The main building retains its structural integrity but requires some rehabilitation from the 1950s institutional modifications undertaken by the church. 

Vines were planted in the late 1990s, and currently there is one hectare of Riesling and one hectare of Shiraz. High quality Riesling fruit has been sold since 2004, and in 2006 two tonnes were reserved for the new Waterton Vineyards label. In addition to a similar quantity for the 2007 vintage, 2.5 tonnes have also been made into a Dessert Riesling. For the first time, a commercial Shiraz will be produced from the 2007 vintage.

  • Fruit  was late harvested early in May for full flavour development; it was whole bunch pressed directly to barrel and wild fermented. The wine was then left on lees to build texture and complexity until just prior to bottling. A delicious example of cool climate Viognier; rich and delicate, a feast for the senses with a beautiful perfume. Silky texture...
