James' Review

This vineyard is situated on a 4000ha sheep station, with the sixth, seventh and eighth generations - headed by Robert and Patricia (nee Amos) Greenhill - custodians of the land granted to James Amos in 1821. It is recognised as the second-oldest family business in Tasmania. The 11ha vineyard is heavily skewed to pinot noir (7ha), the remainder planted (in descending order of area) to chardonnay, pinot gris, riesling, shiraz and sauvignon blanc. The main risk is spring frost, and overhead spray irrigation serves two purposes: it provides adequate moisture for early season growth and frost protection at the end of the growing season.

About

Our Family have been living and loving this land for 200 years. We breathe the world’s cleanest air and are surrounded by four wild rivers and five private forest reserves. This pristine environment and our connection to the land allows us to consistently make some of Tasmania’s finest pinot noir. We are the 5th, 6th and 7th generation of Amos descendants still living and working this original land grant. We are recognised as the second oldest family business in Tasmania.

Specialities

Pinot noir, chardonnay, riesling, pinot gris, shiraz.
