Our Review

The 0.9ha of cabernet sauvignon (apparently Tasmania's oldest) and 0.5ha of pinot noir of Tamar Valley's Legana Vineyard were planted in 1966 by Graham Wiltshire, one of the three great pioneers of the Tasmanian wine industry. Viticulturalist (and Olympic cyclist) Micheal Wilson and his wife Mary Wilson purchased the Legana Vineyard in 2011, painstakingly rehabilitating the almost 50-year-old vines. Shiraz, sauvignon blanc, riesling, pinot gris and chardonnay have since been planted. The estate changed hands again in 2017 and It's now under the ownership of trio Ken Hudson, Peter Bond and David Vaution.
