About

About The Wine

Steve Lubiana's attention to detail in his biodynamically farmed vineyard in southern Tasmania has yeilded some excellent results over the last decade. 

Each year the wines are more refined, concentrated, and tell a more specific story of his patch of land from that vintage. The Pinot Gris from 2017 tells a very compelling story, one of the maturing of Pinot Gris in Aus. It's Pinot Gris as a fine wine, not just a 'Sunday smasher'.

A bit of skin contact and some barrel work in the winery raises this above the pack.

It's about as good as Australian Pinot Gris gets at the moment, it's worth every penny.

About Stefano Lubiana

Steve and Monique Lubiana were pioneers of biodynamic farming in Tasmania. 

Their gorgeous estate was the first to adopt the principals of biodynamics in 2008. Since then the quality of the Stefano Lubiana premium range has soared. The wines are immaculate: Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Sparklings all packed with flavour intensity and perfectly balanced.

As Mike Bennie observed, "Geez, there’s been some wind in the sail on their estate in southern Tasmania. This is top notch stuff right here."

Steve, a fifth-generation winemaker, is now one of Tasmania's leading producers, no doubt about it.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"With a slight amber tint from its time on skins this wine is spicy, smooth and delicious with a layered and intricate palate. Quince, pear, richness and depth – a great food wine." - Steve Lubiana

Additional Info

From The Producer

100% estate-grown, single-vineyard fruit grown on a mix of grey gravelly loam over gravel and red loam over old riverbed. The fruit was given 2 days skin-contact prior to pressing. Subsequently fermented in a mix of old puncheons and large Austrian casks on solids to encourage the fruit to express its full personality.

Wild fermented and aged on lees for six months. The nose shows rose water, dried fruits, ginger spice and perfume. The palate has a balance of sweet and savoury characters echoing the nose with some creamy elements creeping in.

Very complex mouth feel with subtle lees notes, older oak and fine phenolics all creating interest. Textural yet fresh.
