Bright mid straw in colour. Ripe tropical fruits like pineapple and fresh apple contend nicely with the restrained white peaches and nectarines; allowing for a complex amalgam of fruit flavours to meld together. The full textured palate displays all the fruits from the aromas and a crisp long finish is courtesy of the fine acid spine this wine possesses.

The Glen Shian Vineyard, although boutique in stature, shares the terroir, climate and idyllic growing conditions of this special part of the valley with some of the most prestigious wine producers in the country. Bill Hodgson the producer of Glen Shian has adopted a policy of not forsaking quality for quantity. He offers the vintage selection in the sure knowledge which comes from his personalised attention to every facet of the winemaking process; that every glass of Glen Shian wine will deliver exceptional rewards to those few who have the good fortune to share a bottle or two. The finest cool climate fruit grown in iron stone and clay based soils has been allowed to develop to it’s peak during the mild summers of Northern Tasmania and combined with the hands on management of the vine canopies and hand harvesting, has produced the very best quality wines for you to savour and enjoy.
