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. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat. A natural endowment of rich Jurassic soils which impart wonderful mineral characters and textures into the finished wines. Limited yields of immaculate fruit, artisanal winemaking by leading vignerons of the apple isle, a no expense spared approach in the elevage and quality of oak, the wines of Clarence House are a treat for enthusiasts on a quest to procure the elusive vintages of an original Van Diemen's Chateau...

Pinot Grigio is harvested from late February to early March, throughout the chill of early morning. Grapes are pressed and dejuiced into fermentation vessels, inoculated to wild indigenous yeasts for eighteen days of vinification on gross solids. Upon completion, components are held on yeast lees and stirred every few days for six weeks before bottling.
Pale straw with a salmon hue. Pear, white flowers, flint, apple and mineral aromas, a tickle of perfumed strudel spice. Crunchy white pear and fragrant straw notes, rich mid palate with a touch of honey suckle and a crisp mineral finish. Match with grilled scallops, schnapper and garlic aioli salad.
