James' Review

This vineyard is situated on a 4000ha sheep station, with the sixth, seventh and eighth generations, headed by Robert and Patricia (Amos) Greenhill, custodians of the land granted to Adam 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.
