With a focus on producing luxury and icon Burgundy-style wines, Lowestoft represents the absolute pinnacle of Tasmanian winemaking. The still wines consist of two varietals: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
The range initially comprises three Pinot Noirs: Lowestoft Best Barrels Pinot Noir, a blend of the best barrels from select vineyards including Lowestoft; Lowestoft Single Vineyard Pinot Noir, from a single block, small vineyard on the east coast; and Lowestoft La Maison Pinot Noir, produced from 100% Lowestoft fruit. The Chardonnay is produced from the best barrels of selected growers’ fruit but over time will also include the best fruit from our Strelley Farm and Gilling Brook vineyards.
The sparkling wines consist of a Vintage Grand Reserve, an NV Reserve Brut NV and a Vintage Sparkling Rosé with fruit selected across the best sites in Tasmania and made méthode traditionelle.
Only small volumes of each varietal are produced each vintage, making these luxury and iconic wines extremely rare and sought after.
