About The Wine
Here winemaker James Broinowski has his first crack at Tasmanian Chardonnay.
A small parcel of fruit harvested from a single site in the deep south of the island. It was wild fermented, then left on lees for an extended period before bottling.
James chooses to make this without any oak, using the time on lees to build mid palate weight whilst keeping the focus on the Chardonnay fruit flavours and thrilling acidity.
It's crisp, racy and mineral-driven Chardonnay. Think "Chablis by way of Tasmania" and you're heading in the right direction.
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.
