About The Wine
Pooley is well and truly amongst Tasmania's premier Pinot producers and here is another wine that hammers home that point.
Their Butcher’s Hill vineyard is a north-facing site overlooking the Pooley cellar door, and it seems each vintage as these vines get older this wine pushes the envelope further and further. The 2017 vintage provided naturally perfectly balanced fruit, with winemaker Anna Pooley, utilising some whole bunches and around 30% new oak to ramp up the grip and complexity of this release.
The quality across the board of 2017 Pinot Noirs from Tasmania has been exceptional. Anna Pooley and team did not miss out.
This is a beautiful rendition of Pinot from this top-flight vineyard.
Pooley is one of the leading family-owned wineries in Tasmania, renowned for their exquisite Single Vineyard examples of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling from the Coal River region, less than an hour north of Hobart.
The family vineyard was planted in 1985 by Margaret and Denis Pooley. Today it is in the hands of the third generation of Pooleys, with award-winning winemaker Anna Pooley heading up the cellar and her brother Matt as viticuluralist. They make a killer team and the family business is going from strength to strength.
Anna's wines are pure, refined and eminently cellar-worthy. A class-act producer setting a cracking pace for all of Tasmania to follow.
