A remarkable wine. Beg, borrow or steal territory.

About The Wine

Kate Hill has been making wines in Tasmania under her own label since 2008.

With a wealth of experience gathered at some larger comercial wineries on the mainland before a couple of vintages at Stefano Lubiana, Kate has set a cracking pace for her brand over the last decade.

Riesling is one of her fortés as a winemaker. This beautiful example comes from the Derwent and Coal River Valleys. To say that this is amongst the finest Rieslings in Tasmania at the moment would not be out of line.

It has purity, it has poise, it has X-factor.

As Campbell Mattinson observed in his 97 point review, it is "A remarkable wine."

Halliday Wine Companion

"A remarkable wine. Beg, borrow or steal territory. Such pure lime flavour; such exuberant florals; such exhilarating length. There's a sweetness here but there's also searing acidity and length. Stunning riesling." - Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)

Crafted from fruit selected from the Derwent and Coal River Valleys, this vintage has produced a delightful wine with an inviting, spicy citrus nose leading to a clean, crisp full fruit palate.

Pricing & Discounts

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it (policy here). We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on.

We Also Offer Volume Discounts. It works like this:

  ORDERS OVER $149 GET FREE SHIPPING

  ORDERS OVER $299 GET A $20 DISCOUNT

  ORDERS OVER $499 GET A $40 DISCOUNT

  ORDERS OVER $999 GET A $100 DISCOUNT

This will all be automatically applied to your cart during the checkout process. So for example, if you create a cart with a total of $310, your final price at checkout will be $290. The discount will generally be applied to the first item in the cart. For very large wholesale or function orders (weddings etc) we are always happy to negotiate on a case by case basis.
