    Best New Winery of the Year | James Halliday Wine Companion 2020

    After working with Tasmanian fruit for nearly two decades, Glenn James with his wife, Jo Marsh, have released a range of truly unique wines from some of Tasmania’s most exciting vineyards. Glenn's role as Chief Winemaker for Winemaking Tasmania comes with some pretty good perks, not least of which is the ability to year-on-year, see which vineyards are producing the best fruit. This access has given Glenn and Jo the ability to pick and choose from the 'best of the best', and attack the Shy Susan project with a no-compromise approach. Select small parcels of fruit are crafted to reflect variety, vineyard and the stylistic approach forged from Glenn’s skill and experience.

    Shy Susan Chardonnay 2017

    Hand-picked, chilled overnight, whole-bunch pressed direct to barrel, the juice wild-fermented with full solids circa 18 degrees C, partial mlf, 9 months on lees with occasional batonnage. Two barrels were selected, one second-use, the other older, bottled Feb '18, 50 dozen made. Driven by its grapefruit and white peach fruit, oak acting to provide structure, not flavour.
