Heemskerk was an integral player in developing Tasmania's wine industry, long before the island reached its current state of popularity. Graham Wiltshire established the Heemskerk vineyard in 1975 and today the label looks a little further afield, making wines that reflect some of Tasmania's bestvineyard sites.
A wonderful Southern Tasmanian compote of pure, fresh cherry fruit flavours - plush and generous with fine silky tannins and spice. Bright medium cherry red in colour with an amalgam of flavours with brooding forest floor eathiness and cinnamon spice. With understated mocha oak and a fine, long silky tannin structure, this is a wine with wonderful length and persistence of flavour.

Matured in new and used French oak of various sizes. An impressive example of Tasmanian pinot noir, with star-bright crimson colour, and cherry/berry fruits populating most of the bouquet and palate. Happily, there is space for fine, ripe tannins and well integrated oak.
