The strength behind the Bay Of Fires label lies in the excellence of its viticulture, great vineyards planted to the pick of Tasmania's finest terroirs. Moderate yields and cool growing conditions result in wines with outstanding varietal intensity, elevated fruit spice and mineral complexity. Priority is given to assembling a rich cepage of clones grown to treasured sites along Tasmania's east coast, Coal River and Derwent Valley. Whole bunch pressing and a separate handling of each parcel right through to completion of ferments builds a wine of great complexity. Time spent in a high proportion of new French barrels infuses the wine with a judicous integration of oak.
 
Brilliant deep purple. Complex aromas of sweet ripe red berry fruits feature with star anise, cinnamon and floral spice. Elegant yet supple palate, cherries, rhubarb and spice, a length of remarkable power and intensity throughout, all framed by ripe, flattering tannins, finishing on a flourish of graceful marascino fruits and fragrant spice notes.

The Bay of Fires vineyards normally experience a growing season quite similar to Reims, Burgundy and Alsace. Roughly equal proportions of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with a smaller component of Pinot Meunier, are hand picked and whole bunch pressed, to ensure freshness and elegance of structure. After fining, the individual batches are vinified on light grape solids and treated to malolactic on primary ferment lees. Once clarified, the wines are assembled to style and prepared for tirage. Extended maturation on yeast lees builds additional complexity and depth of character, while the expedition liqueur and inclusion of aged reserve wines contributes to the overall depth and dimension of palate.
 
Crystal clear, persistent bead, light straw gold hue. A very complex wine exhibiting toast, lanolin and sea brine characters, honeycomb, yoghurt and oyster. The palate is finely structured, long, powerful and complex. Multiple layers of oyster shell, truffle and apricot brandy build in this intriguing wine. A great depth of character from extended ageing, retaining freshness and vibrancy. A solid, natural acid backbone, biscuit and citrus follow the palate all the way to a crisp, dry finish.

Bay of Fires was born of a desire to make cool climate wines of classical structure, combining fruit intensity with refinement, complexity and persistence of flavour

The group winemaking team at Hardys identified, back in 1994, the regions they believed would make cool climate wines of classical structure, combining fruit intensity with refinement, complexity and persistence of flavour - the ultimate expression and grape and region. Tasmania's potential for the production of classic, cool climate grape varieties was clearly evident. Their vision has come to fruition with the success of Bay of Fires, Tigress and Arras.

Bay of Fires

Tasmania's latitude and island status confer a range of unique climates more closely resembling the classic winegrowing regions of France than any other part of Australia. The vineyards growing grapes for Bay of Fires wines experience growing season temperatures ranging from below those of Reims in Champagne to slightly above those of Burgundy and Alsace. Strong similarities in sunshine hours and humidity also contribute to Tasmania's suitability for growing the world's classic cool climate grape varieties.

Within the range of suitable climates, of particular interest is the strong correlation between specific locations in Tasmania and those of Europe making the world's benchmark examples of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. In carefully selected sites, Tasmania's cool climate supports balanced vine growth and the production of physiologically mature grapes - grapes exhibiting ripe fruit flavours with soft natural acidity and moderate potential alcohol.

The initial interest in the vineyards of Tasmania arose from a desire to seek out genuine cold climate grapes to make fine and elegant, but flavoursome sparkling wine

Sparkling wine made from grapes grown in the extremes of Tasmania's cool climate increasingly impress with their finesse, minerally complexity and persistence of flavour. The wines exhibit a steely leanness, which is finely balanced by intensity of fruit flavour. The Bay of Fires sparkling wines are fine examples of this and are at the forefront of quality Australian.

Bay of Fires, Tigress and Arras have evolved from Tasmania's unique vineyards. Moderate yields and cool growing conditions result in wines with outstanding varietal intensity, elevated fruit spice and mineral complexity. The fruit characters of these wines are tight and enduring and support minimal winemaking intervention. Softness of acidity and persistence of flavour are common attributes. These wines are very much an expression of the grapes, soil and climate that produced them.

Bay of Fires wines reflect the courage and care of a dedicated group of Tasmanian winegrowers and the vision and spirit of the winemaking team.
