Promises florals and sweet fruity notes of nectarine and peach wrapped in a parcel of delicate old oak greet the nose. Opening is all sweetness and juicy fruit elements but across the palate the magic begins and a transformation occurs with exotic spices and sherbet notes coming in late to create a complex and beguiling mix of sweet and savoury. The finish is dramatic and elegant with late dryness from the old oak tannins complimenting the spices and sweet floral elements in a perfect crescendo.
Old Kempton Distillery
The grand coaching inn, built in 1842 by convict embezzler turned-innkeeper, William Ellis, was one of the finest inns on the road from Hobart to Launceston where weary travellers and their horses could rest overnight. The convict brick stables, once home to 22 horses, now houses Old Kempton’s Tasmanian-made copper still.
