The Anim Field is a blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Tempranillo and some rogue Muscat grapes grown on the famed Clarence House Vineyard in the Coal River Valley. All grapes were hand harvested and co-fermented with wild yeasts. The wine has 10% whole bunches, spent 16 days on skins, 6 months in neutral French oak barriques and was unfined and unfiltered during its making. A fun wine to enjoy with light foods.

Max and Siobhan met at the Gnadenberg Church on the Hill of Grace. Wine, it would seem, was in their future. They galavanted around the globe, making wine in NZ, France, Germany and Oregon. On return to their roots in Australia, they settled in Tasmania. Anim is their small, family project, named after their three daughters. It's aim is to highlight unique sites and special parcels from southern Tasmania. To do so, they are intimately involved with the vineyards they select. The wines are made in tiny volumes, primarily allocated to mailing list.The Tinderbox Vineyard is farmed solely by Max and sees the production of our core range of three classic varieties: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling. The breathtaking Tinderbox Vineyard is perched at the entrance to the d’Entrecasteaux Channel, with sweeping views across to Bruny Island and Storm Bay.
