Sourced from our newest high-density block planted to 7 clones of Pinot Noir planted on ironstone-rich, silty duplex soils. Natural fermentation, 100% whole berry and matured in French oak barriques for 18 months prior to bottling unfined and unfiltered. Red/magenta in colour, intermingling wild raspberries, blackberries, red cherry and blueberries on the nose, with cured meats, sage and minerals. The palate is round and silky with red forest fruits, bouquet garni and a very long finish.
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.
