About

About The Wine

This is a blend of four varieties, picked on the same day from the same vineyard. Simla is predominantly Sauvignon Blanc this year, with a healthy portion of Chardonnay, Riesling and a dash of Pinot Blanc.

"It's a wine that changes each year, depending on what the vineyard gives us, which I really like." says winemaker Nav Singh. "This year there's a little more of everything: more florals, more density and a more unctuous palate. This is what we drink the most of at home."

A textural yet aromatic blend which is very moreish.

About Domaine Simha

Nav Singh is the man behind the Domaine Simha label. Along with his wife Louise, Nav has built a unique stable of Tasmanian wines under the Domaine Simha banner. 

He draws from multiple philosophies when crafting his range. The winemaking is mostly traditional, using low amounts of additives, fermenting in clay amphora, experimenting with varying levels of whole bunch and skin contact. The fruit he sources from the Upper Derwent, Coal River and Huon Valley regions, is all picked according to the lunar calendar ala biodynamics.

At Domaine Simha, new project is always in the works. Nav is never afraid to take a chance or try something new.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

A puff of perfume, wild flowers and shredded wheat, oranges in their peel slight cashew nut thing. Fresh lemon pith and some green lime, and good amount of powdery phenolics. Really quite savoury actually. Cool stuff, little left of centre which really works. - Different Drop Wine Team
