Lovely bright ruby hues. The nose is already complex with dark fruit notes mixed with hints of dried summer grass and earthy aromas. The palette has a lingering resonance and is of cherry and summer pudding. The wine is soft with well-integrated oaks and tannins.
Supply River Mill Vineyard
Supply River Mill Vineyard is situated on the western slope of the Tamar River in northern Tasmania. We have been a family operation for two generations and produce a single-site Pinot Noir, always selecting the best fruit in limited quantities from hand-tended vines that are now reaching maturity. Our symbol is adapted from the seal of the revolutionary Jorgen Jorgensen who sailed in these waters in 1804 and five years later seized control of Iceland, overthrowing Danish colonial rule and instituting a short-lived republic. He returned to Tasmania as a convict, becoming one of the mythical figures of early Van Diemen’s Land.
John Sumner planted the 2,500 Pinot Noir vines on a hillside paddock overlooking the Tamar River in 2004 at close intervals of roughly 1.5 by 1.5 m. Today the viticulture is the handwork of his daughter and son-in-law. We collaborate with young winemaker, Ricky Evans, of Two Tonne Tasmania. Each year we release a single-site, premium Pinot Noir, which balances fruit resonance and complexity.
