Enjoy some of Tasmania's most delicate wines, from a collection of vineyards across the state.

Tasmanian wines are recognised worldwide for their premium quality, and often, it's their delicate personalities that bring them to the top. Here are four pinot noirs, and a refreshing blanc de blancs, all of world-class quality.

2017 Cooinda Vale Pinot Noir

2018 Cooinda Vale Pinot Noir

Anna Pooley says: Ripe red fruit, vanilla and rhubarb, with light fennel notes lingering. The palate has added complexities of orange peel and violet notes. Overall, combining into a long, soft and textural mouth feel.

Clover Hill Cuvee

2012 Clover Hill Blanc de Blancs

Robert Heywood says: Aromas of fresh melon underpinned by toasty notes and sweet cinnamon. The palate is bold and rich, with flavours of fresh citric fruit, with a soft minerality that lingers.

Freycinet Pinot Noir

2017 Freycinet Pinot Noir

Claudio Radenti says: The bouquet reveals an intriguing amalgam of black cherry and plum fruits, with subtle forest floor perfume. The velvety smooth and even palate is rich in spicy, ripe berry and plum flavours, with savoury French oak and fine tannins. 

RRP $70 | 2032 | Freycinet Vineyard


Pipers Brook Pinot Noir

2018 Pipers Brook Pinot Noir

Luke Whittle says: Showcasing a vibrant ruby red colour, and aromas of intense mixed berry compote, with fragrant spice and floral notes. The palate reveals red and black fruit purity, supported by fine tannins and structure, providing a wonderfully textured and long finish.

RRP $50 | 2028 | Pipers Brook

  Holm Oak Pinot Noir

2017 Holm Oak The Wizard Pinot Noir

Bec Duffy says: This is a beautiful, more structured style of pinot noir. The complex and fragrant nose shows dark cherry and plum fruit characters, with some attractive spice and earthy characters. The palate is firm and savoury, as a result of the whole-bunch fermentation and new oak, but has lovely dark fruit characters which will continue to open up over time.

RRP $65 | 2030 | Holm Oak
