Two demi-muid (1500 bottles) were produced; this is Pinot Noir shaped by terroir and season. Sheer, elemental nature. A story of terroir; five clones from across a single Derwent Valley vineyard make this a complex, aromatic, spicy style. Raspberry, spice, bushland perfume, riberry, musk. Unbridled and fresh with fine, rounded tannins. This wine was handpicked on a fruit day after the harvest moon. Whole bunch wild ferment with gentle pigeage with two months on skins then matured twelve months in old demi-muid. It was then basket pressed, bottled unfined and unfiltered with perfect natural balance.
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.
