Estate grown field of Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay Musqué, Riesling and Grüner Veltliner. Destemmed, crushed and wild fermented on skins for 12 days. This wine was matured in a Pozvek foudré where it spent 9 months on full lees and underwent 100% malolactic fermentation. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. An aromatic extrovert, a wine that feels like it’s only barely contained by glass. Heady, musky scents of lychee and custard apple, guava and honeydew, coriander seed and candle wax. Clear eyed complexity, every element neatly etched. The slightest phenolic squeeze, beautifully fine acid line.
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.
