Pipers Brook Vineyard Pinot Gris 2014
Pipers Brook & Tamar Valley
Available by the dozen
From vines planted in the 1990s, to estate vineyards in Tamar Valley and around Pipers Brook. The fully ripe expressions of West Tamar are balanced by the naturally high, flavoursome malic acidity derived from Pipers Brook, achieving a tight, refreshing and complex style. The vines are meticulously hand tended, maximizing exposure of the bunches to the sun, realizing harvests with the most intense flavours. A generously complex wine of remarkable intensity, courtesy of the natural skin tannins, so ideal with antipasto, oven roasted turkey or white game.

Pinot Gris ripens quickly in all but the coolest of climates, it's ideally suited to the temperate Tasmanian season. Crop levels are kept low by selective bunch thinning to maximize intensity of flavour. Grapes are hand harvested throughout the chill of early morning. Fruit is crushed and immediately processed, the philosophy being to capture and retain the delectable characters of Pinot Gris while still on the vine. Parcels are pressed and treated to a short period of skin contact, extracting additional flavours which are locked away in the skins, this creates a more complex, rich and savoury style of Pinot Gris. Juices are slowly vinified at lower temperatures in a mix of barrel and fermenters, followed by early bottling. Alcohol 13.5%
 
Copper straw hue. Complex bouquet with a lovely depth of aroma, blooming with fragrant pear, jonagold apple, tangelo zest and goji berries. Jasmine and potpourri, subtle nutmeg notes. The palate is generous, full bodied and dry, poached pear flavours, strudels and paw paw, ginger and cinnamon spice, finishing with a fine chalky, mineral dryness.
Pipers Brook Vineyard Riesling 2015
Pipers Brook, Tamar Valley
Available by the dozen
A fully engaging Riesling with alluring perfumes and elegant structure, from sites in the Pipers Brook and Tamar Valley of northeast Tasmania, an inspiring interpretation of the steely, complex wines of Alsace. The vineyards are vertically integrated through a rigorous regimen of site selection, viticultural development and management. This style of Riesling bridges the gap between the traditional Aussie which profers citrus, chalkiness and light oil, as opposed to their French counterparts which exude floral scents and offer refined palate structures.

The Pipers Brook vineyards are characterized by idyllic growing conditions. Grapes are encouraged to retain all the delicate but ripe, crisp varietal fruit flavours. Tasmania's cool climate when combined with close planting over gravely soil can yield a fine and delicate Riesling wine. Crop levels are maintained at low levels by bunch thinning to increase the intensity of flavours. Bunches are hand harvested throughout the early morning hours and cooled before an immediate processing to capture and retain the vivacious expression of the vineyard. Following the press, musts remain on skins to extract optimal flavours. A long cool ferment encourages retention of fresh fruit flavours while enhancing the bouquet.
 
Colour is a pale lemon. Lifted, perfumed nose with floral notes and traces of Asian tropical fruits. The palate is elegant and refined yet powerfully concentrated with traces of tangy citrus and tropical flavours, the overall balance is crisp and dry with a light skin tannin structure and soft mineral tones lifting the finish. In its youth the wine is superb, but this is a Riesling of substance which will develop beautifully.

Climatically each vineyard site is different from the next. Its the subtle differences in climatic conditions between sites and between vines that becomes part of the complex answer to the production of cool climate wines of the highest quality for which the winemakers strive to produce. Vineyards along the banks of the Tamar river are located inland, slightly less exposed to the prevailing NW winds blowing off Bass Straight which create temperature cooling effects.

The Tamar River vineyards experience slightly warmer average temperatures than the more coastal Pipers Brook and Pipers River regions

As a consequence grapes generally mature some 10 days earlier with slightly higher yields from the Tamar river vineyards. This increases ripening potential and creates a useful spread of harvesting and processing times. These vineyards provide quality and quantity as well as being ideally suited to the production of later ripening varieties such as Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.

The cooler climatic conditions experienced by the more coastal Pipers Brook and Pipers River regions create a perfect environment for the production of sparkling wines due to the fruits retention of naturally high acidity, lower sugar accumulation yet early flavour ripeness. Let the fruit hang on the vines a little longer and the premium table wine production of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Riesling begins.

Vines like deep porous soils and the best wines are produced where a deep-rooted vine is neither under or over supplied with moisture. Pipers Brook Vineyard have selected the ferrosol or kraznozems of northern Tasmania for their best vineyards because the soils are deep, well drained and with ideal moisture characteristics. Although the red colour makes them look rich, in their native state they are quite poor being quite deficient in phosphorous, zinc and boron.

The winemakers at Pipers Brook Vineyard maintain the soils with low nitrogen levels to make sure the vines do not produce too much top growth

The red soils at Pipers Brook vineyard are classed as kraznozems; they are deep and friable soils derived from volcanic parent and share some physical characteristics with terra rossa soils. Wine exhibits the 'gout de terroir' or specific taste of the site when they exhibit a repeatable character unique to the region and even vineyard.

Pipers Brook Vineyard produce genuine expressions of the Tasmanian wine character based on the impact of the terroir. The strength of their commitment is such as to include this word in the vision statement.
