Jim Chatto is recognised as having one of the very best palates in Australia, and has proved to be an outstanding winemaker. He and wife Daisy long wanted to get a small Tasmanian pinot business up and running, but having moved to the Hunter Valley in 2000, it took six years to find a site that satisfied all of the criteria Jim considers ideal. It is a warm, well drained site in one of the coolest parts of Tasmania, looking out over Glaziers Bay.
Clones 113, 8104, 8048 and 205, the vineyard small by even Grand Cru standards at 0.45ha. Has the lightest colour, but is deep by normal standards - all crystal clear. Small red flowers, violets around the corner, couple with faintly minty notes, sunbeams flitting through red berries.
