An Irish cobbler named Reilly settled into the tiny Clare Valley township of Mintaro circa 1856. He converted a stone barn into a homestead cottage. Reilly's Cottage served as the local cobbler's shop in the centre of the bustling town, which had boomed after the establishment of salubrious slate quarries. Almost 140 years later, the cottage has been restored to its former glory by relatives of Reilly, the family Ardill, once again it is a hive of activity, home to the eminent and award winning range of Reilly..

There are fewer than twenty hectares of Stefano Lubiana vines, overlooking the spectacular tidal estuary of Derwent River. Chosen for its felicitious winegrowing aspects, it is a place of scrupulously clean soils, free of any pesticides or manufactured treatments. Insects are welcome here, they are mother nature's endorsement of a holistically biodynamic viticulture. Lubiana is a fifth generation winemaker, one of the apple isle's leading vignerons, he works to an arcane system of seasonal chronometers, governed by cosmic rhythms, the turning of leaves and angle of the moon. His wines are given full indulgence to make themselves. Ferments lie undisturbed and movements to barrel are led by gravity. A peerless expression of vintage, an orphic approach to the winemaker's art, a humbling eloquence of our southernmost.. Celestial wines from southern climes»

Frogmore Creek 42 Degrees South Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Hobart Tasmania
Pure Tasmanian Pinot Noir, crafted from the choice of hand picked fruit, a harvest from Relbia on the island's north is vinified alongside parcels from the Frogmore Creek property and Richmond in the Coal River Valley to the south. 42˚S is the common latitiude which divides two slightly different mesoclimes of the apple isle, the highly accomplished team at Frogmore Creek literally source the pick of the crop. The fickle Pinot Noir is very much at home here, where prevailing westerlies slowly ripen grapes to achieve a graceful, old world style of wine.

The Tasmanian terroir loves to grow Pinot Noir and Pinot Noir loves the growing season of Frogmore Creek's Campania property. The hand picked grapes are given a forty eight hour cold soak before being inoculated for vinification in a combination of small one tonne and 1½ tonnes open fermenters. Batches are hand plunged three times daily and pressed off skins for completion of primary ferments, followed by transfer to oak for malolactic before racking off lees. The finished wine is treated to extended maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barriques, followed by a cross flow filtration before bottling, to preserve freshness and vitality of fruit.
Medium scarlet red. Pure red cherry and blackcurrant aromas. A palate brimming with currant and cherry, followed by a complex mix of red berry flavours. The fresh fruit characters linger, all supported by a soft, elegant tannin structure. A superb Pinot wine to mate with all good faire, innately suited to Italian pork salciccia and truffled polenta.
