Why Tassie? - Tasmanian Wines - Tassiewine.com.au

Why we’re special

When European migrants noticed similarities in the soils and climate between Tasmania and their homeland it was a natural progression to believe that the exceptional wines they had grown up with could be cultivated in their new home. So in the 1950’s a burgeoning wine industry began. Today Tasmanian wine is acknowledged around the world for its superb cool climate varietals.

Cool Climate

Tasmania's climate is moderate. Mild winters and summers are complimented by perfect conditions in autumn for harvesting; temperatures are in the low 20's C and minimums are around 10 C. The advantage of this is it creates a long ripening period so the fruit can develop beautiful characteristics of flavour and acidity.

    Terrior

    Dolerite-capped mountain ranges dot the landscape providing shelter to the vines. The soils have been formed from ancient sandstones and mudstones, river sediments and igneous rocks of volcanic origin. The terrior plays an important role in the development of the wine's unique characteristics and it one of the reasons why Tasmanian wines are so widely sort after.

      Varietals and Regions

      While a wide range of varietals are grown in Tassie, including Riesling, Pinot Gris and Cabernet Sauvignon, the region is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sparkling and Sauvignon Blanc.

      There are 7 distinct wine regions.

      • Tamar Valley - the largest region located north of Launceston
      • The East Coast - from Bicheno in the north to east of Sorell
      • Pipers River - in the northeast and home to some exceptional sparkling
      • Coal River Valley - near Hobart between Cambridge and Colebrook
      • Derwent Valley - also near Hobart
      • Huon Valley and Channel - south of Hobart between Kingston and Southport
      • North West - south of Devonport
