Tasmania's Avant-Garde. Domaine Simha has changed the landscape of Tasmanian wine. The avant-garde wines of Nav Singh and Louise Radman are shaped ‘au naturel’ to reflect epic Tasmanian terroir. At heart, they capture the rare beauty of Tasmania’s pristine natural environment, sparkling air and ancient soil. Each year, just 2-3 barrels of each Domaine Simha wine is crafted to harness the provenance of a single vineyard season. An artisan approach embraces harvesting by lunar cycle on fruit and flower days, wild fermentation with traditional pigeage, maturation in custom demi-muid oak and clay amphorae, basket pressing, bottling unfined and unfiltered with perfect natural balance. The house of Singh originates from ancient Sanskrit for lion, Simha.
