READ ABOUT Tasmania...

Tasmania is amongst the coolest wine regions on the planet. Located at the southern tip of the world, it is emerging as the most exciting wine growing area in Australia. The pristine natural environment is ideal terroir for classic cool climate styles. Tasmania is highly acclaimed for ultra premium sparkling wine, spectacular pinot noir and chardonnay. They are wines with a reputation for subtlety, elegance and quality. Fresh natural acidity and finesse are hallmarks of Tasmanian wine. Riesling and sauvignon blanc also make up significant plantings. A growing reputation for aromatic whites means pinot gris and gewürztraminer are varieties to watch.

While Tasmania is officially recognised as a single region, it contains seven main wine growing areas. They include: Tamar Valley, the North East, North West, East Coast, Coal River Valley, Derwent Valley and Huon Valley/Channel. Southerly vineyards are in close proximity to Hobart, while northern districts are largely centred around the town of Launceston.

Tasmania has a long viticultural heritage. The earliest vineyard was planted in the suburb of New Town in 1821. At this stage, Tasmania is primarily a region of boutique producers. Large wine companies also source premium Tasmanian fruit for their finest chardonnay and sparkling styles. With only 1,500 ha under vine, there is still a lot of potential for growth. As you would expect, widespread vineyards mean there are numerous microclimates across the state. Soils throughout the region range from dolorite and sandstone to alluvial sediment and igneous volcanic rock. The benefit of a moderate maritime climate and cooling Southern Ocean breeze means winemakers are able to deliver absolute quality. Grapes ripen slowly to achieve a wide flavour spectrum and excellent balance.

Tasmania will host the international cool climate wine symposium in 2012.
