About The Wine
Here's a wine that makes a powerful statement about James Broinowski's intentions for the Small Island Wine brand.
This is a special reserve release of his 'South' Pinot Noir.
A single barrel made and released, a minuscule 380 bottles in total.
Campbell Mattinson called it, "distinctive, unique, characterful" in his assessment. It's a wine with impressive depth and structure. An excellent option for the cellar or for the collector that thinks they have it all.
About Small Island Wines
Small Island Wines is a mirco-batch Tasmanian wine company founded by James Broinowski in 2015 after raising the money to launch his brand via a successful crowd-funding campaign through Kickstarter.
James focuses his time on producing Pinot Noir with regional accents from around Tasmania, with a little Rosé and Riesling being made as well.
The wines have received quite a lot of press in only a short amount of time. James Halliday wrote, "It looks very much like a potential acorn to oak story, for the quality of the wines is seriously good." after trying only the first release from 2015.
Since then, James hasn't looked back.
