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.

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 MOORILLA ESTATE

Langton’s Selection Moorilla Estate Reserve Pinot Noir “One kilometre long and almost as wide, its shape is not round, the isthmus is broad and the land rises up gently and then drops towards the river in steep banks covered by native casuarinas, the beautiful green-grey she-oaks which, in that area, have a round canopy instead of the more common pine-like shape.” So wrote Claudio Alcorso, something of a renaissance man, who founded Moorilla Estate in 1958. Moorilla is an Aboriginal word meaning ‘A rock by the water’ as the winery is located on the edge of the Derwent River. The wines have all been revamped in recent times to reflect a strong wine, art and tourism focus. The business was acquired by David Walsh and local partners during the 1990s. A museum of antiquities was later established. Further capital works have progressed resulting in an extraordinary cultural centre comprising a museum, performing arts centre, brewery, restaurant and boutique accommodation. It

It’s hard to know whether Moorilla Estate will ever reclaim a position in the secondary wine market as a mover and shaker. The wines are good, but inevitably the business, with its brilliantly conceived and strong commercial focus, has moved away from the highly stringed ultra-fine wine market. The batch vinified Muse Series is the current collection of wine (with naked bodies everywhere on the website). Andrew Caillard MW, Langton's
