The finest parcels of Tasmanian fruit

With a distinct golden hue attributed by yeast development in bottle from over 5 years on lees and the blending of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.  This wine displays exquisite nutty and toasted notes on the nose with a hint of seaspray and oyster shell. On the palate, it delivers a seamless crisp acid line with a creamy layered palate indicative to the cool climate of the Pipers River Region of Tasmania.

This wine has texture, complexity and persistence which are all trademarks of the house style of Clover Hill.
