"The most sublime Australian Pinot Noir" Tyson Stelzer, WBM 2024

 We have received some incredible reviews from Tyson Stelzer in the latest issue of the Wine Business Magazine

2022 Lowestoft La Maison Pinot Noir (pre-release sold out)

97 Points

"The most sublime Australian Pinot Noir I have ever tasted. After I named the 2020 vintage Pinot Noir of the Year in the Halliday Wine Companion, if it wasn’t already clear that the old Pinot vines of the Lowestoft vineyard are among the finest in the country, the 2023 Jimmy Watson for the 2022 certainly confirmed it. There is a resolute confidence to this  site, intricately powered by the genius of Liam McElhinney and his team. Deep black fruit complexity, lifted violet and rose petal perfume, evocative exotic spices, velvet-fine tannins and brilliant natural acidity.” 

2021 Lowestoft La Meilleure Chardonnay

95 Points

Tasmanian Chardonnay of distinction and grandeur thanks to the advantage of agility in both sourcing and production techniques drawing on the best regions across the state and the best of winemaking dexterity. The result delivers complexity and concentration yet succeeds in delivering the tricky balance of combining this with understated restraint, structural tension and enduring promise. 

2022 Lowestoft Single Vineyard Glengarry Pinot Noir (not yet released)

95 Points

Lowestoft captures a very different mood in Glengarry north west of Launceston than it does in its home vineyard in the Derwent Valley, expressing the cool and humid 2022 vintage with a vibrant tangy and elegant mood of morello cherries, wild strawberries and rose petal lift. Driven by cool acidity, marrying with beautifully fine tannins to define a streamlined and perfectly polished fuselage of long-distance endurance of Burgundian proportions. 

2022 Lowestoft Sing Vineyard Jacoben Pinot Noir (not yet released)

95 Points

I love the elegant restraint of this cool humid season, and this single vineyard in the lower Derwent Valley exemplifies its mood with tension and endurance. This is Pinot Noir scaffolded for the long haul, with an intricately engineered framework of super fine tannins supported with all the structure of impeccably poised natural acidity. I love the dynamic, setting a longevity much more Burgundian than it is Tasmanian.
