The strength behind the Bay Of Fires label lies in the excellence of its viticulture, great vineyards planted to the pick of Tasmania's finest terroirs. Moderate yields and cool growing conditions result in wines with outstanding varietal intensity, elevated fruit spice and mineral complexity. Priority is given to assembling a rich cepage of clones grown to treasured sites along Tasmania's east coast, Coal River and Derwent Valley. Whole bunch pressing and a separate handling of each parcel right through to completion of ferments builds a wine of great complexity. Time spent in a high proportion of new French barrels infuses the wine with a judicous integration of oak.
