This is likely to change in the future, as there are considerable climatic and terroir dissimilarities between Pipers River and the Tamar Valley in the north; the Derwent Valley, the Huon Valley and the Coal River Valley with Richmond in the south, and Bicheno on the east coast. It is a common fallacy to imagine that all Tasmanian wines are similar, or have similar backgrounds. Nothing could be further from the truth. If there is a common link, it comes most clearly through Pinot Noir and Riesling, with Chardonnay not far behind, particularly when the latter is teamed up with Pinot Noir in the production of sparkling wine. The warmest areas, and those most likely to permit the satisfactory ripening of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, are the Tamar Valley, the Coal River and Bicheno. Even here, site selection of the sunniest, most sheltered, north and north-east facing slopes is crucial, as is meticulous viticulture and canopy control. At the other end of the spectrum is the Pipers River area, made doubly challenging by the rich red soils that predominate and, in the far south, the beautiful Huon Valley.

  • Ninth Island Pinot Noir 2010

    Snoothrank:

    It was the worst Pinot Noir I've ever had. And please, do not compare this one with California Pinots, specially from Russin River, they are the best! Read More

  • Ninth Island Pinot Noir 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This is a very strong fruit based Pinot Noir. Not as overwhelming as many of the Californian Pinots. There is no after taste and even hints at a more complex orgin in the mouth. I serve this to my wifes friends mostly. For the more serious wine drinker, if you like a more earthy cab for instance then this may not be the drink for you. If you lik... Read More
