Our Lime Kiln Pinot Noir is a lovely fruit driven style possessing all the hallmark elegant Tasmanian attributes. The aroma is vibrant and fresh with raspberry, cherry and asorted red fruits. Texturally the palate is rich with cherry, berry fruits and supportive powdery tannins. The fresh primary fruits dominate with underlying tannins and acidity providing great support for this excellent example of early release café style Pinot Noir.
Our family owned and operated wine business is situated just 20 minutes North of Hobart; the largest city in Tasmania. Located at 42 degrees south latitude this is genuine Cool climate Viticulture. Tasmania is rapidly gaining a reputation as Australia’s premier Pinot Noir, Riesling and Sparkling wine producing area. When we say family operated; that’s exactly what we mean with 3 generations of family members currently involved in the business. Planted on the historic Mt Nassau property which has been in the current owner’s family since 1913, Derwent Estate Wines was part of the diversification program. The property has seen a vast array of ventures over the last 100 years or so including Sheep, Cattle, Vegetable production, seed crops, poppies, quarrying and the production of lime. Viticulture is the next exciting phase in the history of Mt Nassau.
