Hand-picked, 50% whole bunch fermented, wild yeast, unfined and unfiltered. Low crops from silica quartz soil produce intense dark cherry and wild red fruit aromas, with spice and herb characters coming from the whole bunch fermentation. Intricate red fruit and spice flavours flourish in a rich palate with savoury finish and fine, grainy tannins. Powerful yet subtle, evocative, generous, layered and structured.
Haddow + Dineen
Haddow + Dineen is a collaborative winemaking project from cheesemaker Nick Haddow and winemaker Jeremy Dineen with the aim to make small batches of intensely Tasmanian wines. Our grapes are sourced exclusively from a tiny single vineyard in Yorktown near the mouth of the Tamar River in northern Tasmania where vines grow in white quartz gravel. Our core belief is that great fruit, from special places, guided by the right hands is what makes great wine. We value ‘maximum consideration’ over ‘minimal intervention’ – for every wine we produce, there are a thousand choices to be made about whether to impose ourselves or simply employ vigilant inaction.
