The wine opens with an intensely perfumed nose, showing wild strawberry and redcurrants with hints of violets and wild fennel. Medium bodied, the palate is sweet’n’silky, full of juicy red fruits, with fine/chalky tannins. This wine has great length and persistence, with a wonderful fine spice and lively acidity to finish.
Sinapius (sin-ay-pi-us) is located in the heart of the Pipers Brook wine region in Northern Tasmania and above the banks of the Pipers Brook. The original 2-hectare vineyard was purchased by Vaughn Dell & Linda Morice in 2005. Both of us were born and raised in Tasmania and have a deep-seated love of this beautiful island paradise. Having spent time living, studying and working in the Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and Margaret River, we always knew that one day we would return home to what we believe is the most exciting location in the New World for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay; one which speaks clearly of its place and variety in its purest form. We are involved in every step of the business from hand tending the vines through to crafting the wines in our onsite winery, and ultimately assisting in distributing the finished product, through our cellar door.
