White: Stargazer Chardonnay 2022, Coal River, TAS
Red: Tolpuddle Pinot Noir 2022, Coal River, TAS

Stargazer Chardonnay 2022, Coal River, TAS

Stargazer wines pay tribute to Abel Tasman, who as an explorer and navigator, must have spent a fair amount of time gazing towards the heavens.

The 2022 Chardonnay is a well-balanced, dry white wine with a strong nose of tropical and citrus fruits like white nectarine and fresh pear. The palate is complex and a great option for the oaky Chardy lovers who want a well-priced glass of something buttery!

Tolpuddle Pinot Noir 2022, Coal River, TAS

This wine is true to the Tolpuddle Vineyard Pinot Noir style: intensely aromatic, medium-bodied with savoury spice notes and hints of fresh acidity. It also has notes of red cherry, smoked meat, and olive notes, framed by fine but firm tannins.

Made with hand-picked grapes that are fermented as a combination of whole berries and bunches, the wine was then aged in French oak for ten months, giving it complexity and power.
