JULY 2019 RELEASES - 2013 HVG Pinot Noir & 2016 Winstead Lot 7 Pinot Noir

2013 HVG Pinot Noir

This wine is a collaboration between wine judge Tim Goddard owner of Cool Wine in Hobart and winemaker Rick Burge from Burge Family Winemakers in the Barossa Valley. The wine was made from a select parcel of fruit sourced from Meadowbank Vineyard in the Derwent Valley and was vinified at Kate Hill Wines in the Huon Valley.


2016 Winstead Lot 7 Pinot Noir

The Lot 7 comes from our original plantings in 1990, on the home block. It is a robust wine, with dark chocolate, plum, tobacco and cinnamon characters. 

This month we have two outstanding Tasmanian Pinot Noirs. The fruit for these wines comes from some of the oldest Pinot Noir vines planted in southern Tasmania. The fruit for the HVG Pinot Noir was sourced from Meadowbank Vineyard in the Derwent Valley, planted in 1988. The Winstead Lot 7 fruit comes from the original “home block” vines planted in 1990. These wines showcase the depth of flavour derived from the combination of mature vines producing high quality fruit in the vineyard and skillful vinification in the winery. 2013 HVG Pinot Noir – This wine is a collaboration between wine judge Tim Goddard owner of Cool Wine in Hobart and winemaker Rick Burge from Burge Family Winemakers in the Barossa Valley. The wine was made from a select parcel of fruit sourced from Meadowbank Vineyard in the Derwent Valley and was vinified at Kate Hill Wines in the Huon Valley. 2016 WINSTEAD LOT 7 Pinot Noir – Neil Snare – owner, viticulturist and winemaker at Winstead vineyards in Bagdad (Southern Midlands) – is an early participant in the Tasmanian wine scene, planting his first vines in 1989. Neil produces 2 distinct Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs. The “Lot 7” from our original plantings on the home block is a robust wine, with dark chocolate, plum, tobacco and cinnamon characters. The 2016 Winstead Lot 7 Pinot Noir has a dark red colour with a touch of blue around the rim. This wine is still well in its youth. The nose displays dark fruits of the forest and spicy oak showing the influence of the new Suary French barriques. The palate is deep and rich, with sweet dark cherry, raspberry, plum and some spicy oak influences. The structure of this wine is immediately evident showing both weight and length. This wine is one for the cellar as it has been built for the long haul. Venison or wallaby accompany this wine beautifully.
