The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west.

Pinot Noir Pipers River Tasmania
Pinot Noir is selectively hand picked off some marvelous old vines, now into their fourth decade. Just over half of the fruit is selected from D Block, a parcel that's specifically husbanded for Rosé. Grapes are destemmed into open top fermenters, a third of the fruit is included as whole bunches. A wild indigenous yeast vinification over the course of a fortnight brings the ferments to complete dryness, for an adults only style. A small amount of blush hued saignée is added to round out the bouquet and infuse the rakish pink.
