Our Top Tassie Whites | Wines

Written by St. Urban Wines

Tasmania's cool climate is perfect for Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Pinot Noir - just to name a few. 

 

And the best bit - Tasmania also makes some delicious sparkling wines - as close as you'll find to Champagne in Australia.

So what wines get our vote? 

1) Moorilla Wines 2016 Praxis Sauvignon Blanc $26.00

 Think lemon verbena, cranberry and thyme.  

This wine demands to be appreciated young and fresh - the grapes were sourced from the St. Matthias Vineyard on the West Tamar in Northern Tasmania. Picked at varying degrees of ripeness over the course of 7 days, this technique provides layers of complexity not usually found in cool Sauvignon Blanc.

 

2) Ghost Rock 2016 Small Batch Chardonnay $52.00

This wine was created with texture, weight and a cracking orchard fruit. 

The Small Batch Chardonnay was sourced from quality parcels of fruit handpicked from Ghost Rocks own Bonadale and Oulton sites. 

 

3) Hughes & Hughes 2017 Sauvignon Blanc $30.00

A Sauvignon with zest and punch with underlying characteristics of green gage and passionfruit. The Hughes & Hughes Sauvignon Blanc is fresh and vibrant, working well with fresh grilled Tassie seafood. 

 

4) Moorilla Wines 2012 Muse Extra Brut $52.00

This wine has as much sparkle as a Mariah Carey concert in the 90's and makes for a great aperitif style. Method Champenoise all the way, this sparkling wine is a blend of 66% Chardonnay and 34% Pinot Noir. Currently this wine is displaying fresh subtle components however with bottles age will develop brioche, toast and honey.
