Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo.

Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard. Conspicuous for her serious weight of fruit, splendid structure and chewy, textural palate, Nanny Goat make a magnificently endowed style, offering the understated power and presence to accompany gourmet game sausages, meaty Mediterranean braises or char grilled rib...

A kaleidoscope of varietal fruit characters, assembled from exclusively hand picked grapes, off vines twenty five years of age, predominantly planted to clay and limestone soils, in a dozen of the finest precincts in and around Riquewihr. Grapes are picked into small tubs and treated to a gravity filled press, without any pumping or mechanical interventions, to retain the integrity of fruit. Musts are decanted for a few hours, followed by vinification in temperature controlled barrels or vats at 18°C to 24°C. Batches are racked and allowed to clarify by cold settling throughout the course of winter. Components are lightly filtered the following spring, bottled and aged under the Hugel cellars until release.
Bright pale green hues. Fresh, and deeply fragrant, blossom florals, jasmine and rose, almond and acacia, white peaches and pear, bitter orange and spice. Discreetly elegant and dry palate, soundly structured body and great length, lightly opulent, its finish is well scented, aromatic and crisp. Enjoy young, for its frank, aromatic bouquet, reflecting the diversity of each Alsace grape.
