About The Wine
Hats off to Pooley becoming Tasmania's first certifiably sustainable vineyard. Caring about the earth they farm obviously paying dividends for this top producer.
This is a top flight Gewurztraminer. The terroir of this beautiful estate shining through. The flamboyant floral, musk and Turkish Delight characters well known in the variety are calmed and composed here, set in a frame of pristine minerally acidity.
The all important balance for this variety expertly handled here by winemaker Anna Pooley. This is one of the best examples of this variety you will find from the Apple Isle.
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 viticulturalist. 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.
