100% Single vineyard (Chardonnay 46 %, Pinot Noir 47%, P.Meunier 7 %) Alc. 12.5%. A cool season, with above average rainfall.  and a dry finish during grape ripening has delivered beautifully restrained sparkling wines with excellent acidity and freshness. Harvest date 31 March 2020. Tiraged November 2020, and now disgorged with 31 months on lees. “Pale green gold hue, the bouquet has vanilla brioche overtones, and the palate shows pinot noir mid-palate fullness followed by a long finish.”

                                                Pair with Oysters, Sicilian Green Olives, Parmesan cheese

 Apogee Deluxe Vintage Rosé 2020

100% Single vineyard. Alc.12.9% (Pinot Noir 75% (Clones 115,521) Chardonnay 17%, Pinot Meunier 8%). Harvest date 1 April 2020, slightly later than normal, is a result of a cooler and wetter summer than average often leading to excellent white wine and sparklings; delicate copper pink, a deep, complex bouquet of raspberry, strawberry preserve with summer flowers, minerals. A very delicate but intense palate with lingering berry fruits. Mid-body after the full 2019 with excellent freshness on finish. “ Beautiful perfume, wonderful array of complex flavours, great energy and overall a class act. Apogee continues to make a strong case for being at the Apex of Australian sparkling wines". Mike Bennie. Wine Business Monthly. 95 Points.

Alc. 13.7 %.  100% Pinot Gris Clone D1V7.  A cool La Niña season, with a GST of 14.5˚C (average for Lebrina) and with many small berries in the bunch. “Late” harvest by Australian standards on 14 April 2023. “Thirty percent old oak ferments, 30% malolactic fermentation. Youthful and light yellow. Crushed flower petal and pome fruit aromas with totally integrated oak, some lusciousness and tropical flavours on the palate. Rounded acidity and a small lick of tannin for texture. Andrew Pirie, August 2023.
Pair with Green Thai Curry Chicken, fresh Asparagus Hollandaise

                                                Pair with roast chicken, Charcuterie platter. Thai green curry.

Apogee Alto Pinot Noir 2023

A warm summer and relatively dry autumn have driven the full-bodied style of this wine but despite the extra weight it is still round and delicate from the humid regional influence or terroir. A mild water stress was imposed on vines during the ripening period and it has endowed this wine with rich colour and tannins. Pinot Noir clones 777 and115 were harvested 13 April 2023. 100% French oak. A dark full-bodied red wine, with velvety roundness from silky tannins and luscious fruit viscosity and flavours. ebullient rich fruit bursts through.  For current drinking but the tannin framework will permit extended aging for 10-20 years. Alc.vol 14.0%

                                                                Pair with Brillat Savarin cheese. Mushroom risotto.




"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." Matt Kramer, Wine Spectator, USA.
