The winery was founded upon the vision and spirit of our dedicated winemaking and viticultural team, who believed Tasmania would one day be the pre-eminent region in Australia to produce cool climate wines. To this end, we search for the individual 'personalities' in every variety and vineyard, to craft wines which are unique, alluring and distinctively Tasmanian but never compromise on consistency or quality.
The Bay of Fires philosophy on Pinot Noir production is to preserve to bottle the essential characteristics of the vineyard and fruit and create the highest quality blend from sub regional Tasmania. Gentle handling of the fruit and the wine helps to achieve this, while restrained winemaking assists in developing the complexity of the final blend.
2018 Review: From the East Coast and Derwent Valley. Hand-picked, temperature-controlled wild ferment, wild and cultured yeast, matured in 29% new French oak from the best Burgundian coopers. This is a pinot I would happily fill my cellar with. It is only medium-bodied, but it's gloriously long and elegant, the tannins superfine yet building the aftertaste.
