Expert Reviews

95 Points - Nick Butler - The Real ReviewMedium-weight in the glass. An instantly charming nose of dark cherries, oak-spice and hint of wild strawberry. A soft, silken texture, dark cherries return, just a beautifully balanced young wine. Fruit given centre stage

How's it taste?

Great compilation of fruit and subtle savouriness. Ripe cherry and wild plum expression throughout the glass, with fine tannins to fill in before the next mouthful

How was it made?

This early release Pinot Noir has been created in a fresh style for drinking now or cellar for 3-5 years to enjoy its full potential. An extended growing period led to a full range of fruit characters backed by spice and complemented by fine tannins.

Who made it?

Cape Bernier Vineyard was awarded "Tasmanian Vineyard of the Year 2010" for excellence in viticulture and vineyard management. Awarded by Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania, it is judged by an expert panel comprising both leading viticulturists and researchers. The underlying Cape Bernier winemaking philosophy is that "great wines are made in the vineyard." Cape Bernier Vineyard has four hectares under vine and is situated at Bream Creek on Tasmania's east coast overlooking historic Marion Bay. The climate and location of the site largely determine the selection of varietals, with the emphasis on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The aim of Cape Bernier Vineyard is to produce wines of the very highest quality which reflect the unique terrroir of the site. The Cape Bernier wines are classic examples of what can be achieved when Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay are grown in a genuinely cool climate. Cape Bernier Pinot Noir is the flagship wine in the range of products, followed by a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and a Pinot Noir Rose. The Chardonnay is the more serious of the whites with the Pinot Gris being the first wine of each vintage.
