Winegrowing in the Tamar Valley is a relatively recent occurence. Tamar Ridge have pioneered the development of highly specialized sites which deliver grapes with the perfect levels of bright acidity and natural fruit sugars. Vinified from parcels of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grown to the best vineyards, a primary fermentation is initiated in tank under strict temperature control to retain maximum aromaticness and flavour. The wines are treated to a secondary fermentation before bottling under pressure to protect the lively effervescence. This clean, fruit friendly style of sparkling winemaking delivers bright, fresh characters without the intrusion of flavours and aromas which can be derived from yeast lees. Alcohol 12.0%
 
Pale straw in colour with a medium bead showing good persistence. The emphasis is on the bright and lively aromas of ripe new season apples with the complimenting tang of citrus.

Lively and fresh in the mouth with wonderful fruit driven flavours before a clean finish that's dry and refreshing. Fashioned to a modern aperitif style that could be called uponn for service served with a wide range of foods.

Employing the latest technology, but with more than a few concessions to the traditional techniques which have served winemakers for centuries, the goal is to harness the pristine fruit and fashion an individual style of wine that speaks boldly about a superior site. The exclusively estate grown, hand picked fruit is crushed and pressed without spending any time on skins. A small component is transferred to French oak for a course of rich barrel ferments. The majority is treated to controlled fermenters and vinified at low temperatures to a mix of wild and cultured yeasts. Upon completion, batches are held on sedimentery lees for two months to build fine textures and enhance palate weight.

There is full, soft fruit flavours of ripe pear plus a level of nuttiness derived from time on yeast lees. The finish is clean and dry with good flavour persistence and just enough grip to add interest. innately suited to good cuisine.

Tamar Ridge's objective is to retain the intense fruit characters developed in the cool climate vineyard. All efforts are aimed at nurturing the vines to achieve yields of Riesling at complete flavour ripeness, to be harvested and handled back at the winery in the soundest possible condition. Parcels are whole bunch pressed and immediately run off skins into fermenters with little or no skin contact. Juices are cold settled to remove any solids and inoculated with a selected aromatic yeast strain prior to vinification under strict temperature controls to maximise retention of lovely Riesling fruit characters. A cool and slow fermentation is followed by a number of weeks on primary yeast lees prior to racking.

Great wines are made in the vineyard and it is the exceptional fruit grown at the Kayena Vineyard that forms the cornerstone of the Tamar Ridge and Devil’s Corner range of wines

Located on the western banks of the Tamar River, 40 kilometres north of Launceston, the Kayena Vineyard is planted to a range of cool climate varieties including Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Employing state-of-the-art winemaking techniques, but with more than a few concessions to the traditional techniques that have served winemakers for centuries, our winemaking goal is to harness the pristine fruit characters the Kayena Vineyard produces, fashioning them into individual wine styles that speak of their cool origins.

Tamar Ridge

The Kayena Vineyard range of wines offers pristine varietal definition, great purity of fruit character, and the refreshing acidity which is the hallmark of genuine cool climate wine. Only grapes grown, made and bottled at the Kayena Vineyard are selected for this range of wines. The Devil’s Corner is a section of the Tamar River near the Kayena Vineyard. It is a calm area of refuge for sailors away from the potentially wild waters of Whirlpool Reach to the south, and has been used as such for over 200 years. The Devil’s Corner wines are pure, crisp and refreshing, displaying vibrant fruit qualities and great drinkability. Wines to be savoured now rather than cellared.

Vineyards were first established in Tasmania during colonial settlement. Only in relatively recent years, however, has viticulture emerged in the beautiful Tamar Valley to forge a reputation for varietal and sparkling wines of the highest quality. In less than a decade Tamar Ridge Wines has established its own acclaimed success story as part of Tasmania’s modern wine industry. The first vines were planted at Tamar Ridge in 1994, and the first vintage was released five years later in 1999. The company continues to grow strongly and is today a leading producer of Tasmanian cool climate table wines with sales in every Australian state and a growing list of export markets.

Great wines are made in the vineyard and every effort is made at Tamar Ridge Wines to grow exceptional grapes. From the West Tamar vineyards, the focus on the varieties ideally suited to the region’s distinct viticultural landscape. Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are all grown on Scott Henry trellising which is favoured for its split-canopy design which allows maximum fruit exposure to the sun.

Wine quality is the primary objective, consistently achieved through attention to detail and control of the entire process from grape growing, through winemaking, packaging and marketing of the final wine. The result is wines of the highest quality that are certifiably 100% Tasmanian and reflect the natural variations that are engendered by climate, soil, topography and winemaking practices.

A variety of clones has been planted throughout the vineyard, with each block – and on occasion rows – managed individually to maximise fruit quality from the specific site. Our viticultural team takes a very ‘hands-on’ approach to the management of the vineyard with all vines hand-pruned and much of the harvest carried out by hand. The aim of all this effort is to produce grapes that display pristine fruit flavours, distinctive varietal character and a personality that allows our wine-makers to fashion quite individual wine styles.
