Sinapius (sin-ay-pi-us) Vineyard is in the heart of the Pipers Brook wine region in Northern Tasmania, above the banks of the Pipers Brook. The vineyard, formerly known as Golders Vineyard, was purchased By Vaughn Dell and Linda Morice in 2005. Both have spent time studying and working in the Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and Margaret River and dreamt of returning home to Tasmania to grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in what they believe is the premier location in Australasia. In order to maintain the highest quality, they aim to cap production at a maximum of 1,000 cases, from three hectares of close planted vineyard.
From a top producer in the Pipers River district, this is a serious pinot of structure and intensity. There are spicy aromas recalling nutmeg and clove, plus dark fruits and almond meal. The palate is powerful, concentrated and firm with ample tannin. A superb wine that is just starting to come into its own and has great potential. Give it plenty of air for best results if drinking young.
