The Dunbabin Family Reserve - with 40% whole bunch in the pressings and longer, selected barrel time. Made from parcels of premium fruit from the oldest vines on the property, this wine is more complex, richer, and structured with the ability to age for a decade or more. Smooth and savoury with rich plum and dark cherry fruit, soft spice and earthiness, a firm personality and soft seamless silkiness in the mouth with a density of flavours. Very seductive and sophisticated
Milton Vineyard was first farmed in 1826 initially for fine Tasmanian wool but is now producing fine cool climate wines. We are located at 42 Degrees South on the dry sunny Freycinet Coast of Tasmania. The grapes are grown on free draining red loam liberally sprinkled with dolerite rocks. Tasmania lends itself to boutique vineyards. Our vineyard has a unique micro-climate that suits the ancient grape Pinot Noir. Also in our 13 hectare vineyard are plantings of the aromatics Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer. Our focus is on producing small quantities of handmade wine. Close attention is paid to every detail in the vineyard and the wines represent this exacting work.
