Region Southern Tasmania

Cool to cold climate/Elevation 5-55m Tasmania is an island State which is separated from the southeast coast of mainland Australia by Bass Strait. These vineyards are Australia’s most southerly, the first vineyard planted in 1823 near Hobart. The emerging wine industry petered out during the late 1880s due to difficulties with climate and economic pressures. The Tasmanian wine industry re-emerged in the late 1950s with the establishment of Moorilla Estate on the outskirts of Hobart in Tasmania’s south. The vineyards located close to the Derwent Estuary and Coal River near Hobart and planted on a range of sandstone and alluvial soils. They are protected from wind, enjoy long hours of sunshine and maritime influence. The nearby large body of water moderates temperatures during autumn. However, supplementary irrigation is needed because of low rainfall. The Huon Valley is yet to make its mark. Moorilla Estate is perhaps the most important producer. Certainly it is making some very good P

However, supplementary irrigation is needed because of low rainfall. The Huon Valley is yet to make its mark. Moorilla Estate is perhaps the most important producer. Certainly it is making some very good Pinot Noir, Merlot and Riesling. Its Gewurztraminer is highly regarded, too, but none of these wines performs on the secondary market. The small Domaine A, located at Campania near Coal River, is also showing potential for its Pinot Noir and Cabernet. Andrew Caillard MW, Langton's

Winery HEEMSKERK

Heemskerk is situated in Tasmania, Australia’s most southerly and coolest grape growing region. The original Heemskerk vineyard was established in 1975 by Graham Wiltshire, Bill Fesq, a Sydney wine merchant and Colin Haselgrove from Reynella Wines, who collectively recognised the potential of this region. Heemskerk sources its Pinot Noir from a 25-year-old vineyard on the banks of the Derwent River in the Derwent Valley. Riesling is sourced from the Riversdale Vineyard, a northeast facing, 12-year-old vineyard on the banks of the Coal River and the 25-year-old East facing Tolpuddle Vineyard is ideal for Chardonnay. Dedicated to creating classic cool climate styles from highly expressive vineyard sites, Heemskerk is a premium Tasmanian producer worth watching.
