Named after the iconic Wineglass Bay on the spectacular Freycinet Peninsula nearby, it is produced from meticulously tended 38 year old vines, all hand pruned and hand harvested. Viticulturally, the aim is to grow a moderate yield of fully ripe, healthy fruit. Our cool climate enables a long, slow ripening season producing remarkable intensity of aroma and flavour plus excellent natural acidity balance in the fruit.

Our goal in the winery is to harness this fruit purity in such a way that it leaps out of the glass and provides considerable drinking pleasure. This is achieved through gentle  handling along with slow fermentation at cool temperatures. To provide an extra dimension of creamy texture and complexity, 40% of this wine was fermented and matured in predominately seasoned French barriques, with a small percentage of new oak giving the wine subtle structure and length. Texture and complexity is enhanced without obvious oak characters. Being older barrels, the texture and complexity is enhanced without obvious oak characters.

The 2024 season on the east coast of Tasmania saw the return of warmer, drier conditions after three cooler, wetter, La Nina influenced seasons. The winter proceeding the growing season set the scene with mild above average temperatures throughout and close to normal rainfall. Spring and summer continued this warmer than average temperature pattern and low rainfall. Budburst was early as a result and settled flowering conditions provided a return to long-term average yields with perfect, well-formed bunches. Given the extra warmth throughout the season all varieties ripened beautifully and up to three weeks earlier than normal. Fruit quality was exceptional with concentrated flavours and ripe, juicy acidity.

The wine is lively and exuberant featuring vibrant gooseberry, citrus and passionfruit aromas. The generous palate is awash with an array of tropical fruits, ruby grapefruit and soft herbs and offers a creamy smooth mid palate with subtle layers of complexity and impressive length. A crowd-pleasing style which can be enjoyed with or without food.
Delicious with seafood of all kinds and lighter dishes.

Wineglass Bay Sauvignon Blanc has been consistently recognised for its high quality, winning a swag of awards over the years.
