Priory Ridge is a boutique  6 hectare vineyard, with ideal north facing slopes which maximise sunlight. The soil is Devonian granite, rich in mineral content, transferring a unique “terroir” to the wine. Formally known as Tarpot Farm, the property has been in the ownership of Julie Llewellyn’s family (Reid/Clifford) for over 120 years. Julie’s Great Grandparents settled at Priory in 1889 after migrating from England in 1880. Before its conversion to grapes the property was mainly used to graze sheep as an adjunct to a much larger property, grazing sheep, cattle and some cropping. Priory Ridge has the George River as its Northern boundary and the vineyard draws its water from a small dam on the property. The 2017 Priory Ridge Pinot Noir has a typical Burgundian nose, with plum and dark fruit flavours, balanced by velvety tannins and oak complexity. It delivers textures & structure on the long persisting palate. Priory Ridge Pinot Noir is made by Brian Franklin at Apsley Gorge winery in Bicheno. Following 18 months in French Oak barrels this wine has been bottled without fining or filtration. The slight peppery/spicy finish adds to the character of the wine.
