Protecting the Naming of Tasmanian Sparkling Wine

18th May 2018



Matt Kramer writing in the Wine Spectator 26 October 2016

"Try to find sparkling wines from Australia's Tasmania Island. You'll be impressed, I promise. Maybe even astonished at the degree of refinement and sheer—dare I say it?—Champagne-like elegance of Tasmania sparkling wine."



$66 rrp approx | TASMANIA | DIAM | 12.6% ALCOHOL | DRINK 2019-2024 

45% pinot, 49% chardonnay, 6% meunier;  aged 42 months on lees; 8.5g/L dosage; currently disgorged 27 June 2019

Huon Hooke

Huon Hooke

Light to medium yellow colour, with a bouquet showing considerable age development: lots of sherry aldehydes and complex, mellow, straw, hay and toasted bread nuances, a little nuttiness. The aldehydes are surprising. It's a very good wine, although I wonder if bottle variation explains the aldehydes. Bollinger comes to Tasmania! The finish is soft, dry, refined and beautifully-balanced. 24 MAY 2019.


$ 75 RRP approx.| TASMANIA | DIAM | 12.3% ALCOHOL | DRINK 2018-2025  76% Pinot noir; 12% Chardonnay 12% Pinot Meunier-25% fermented in old oak casks; aged 30 months on lees;  currently disgorged 27 March 2018

"Piper's River pinot noir is the secret to many of Australia's most refined sparkling rosés and Andrew Pirie knows this as well as anyone.
